The non-profit organization, The White Pine Foundation, has received a generous donation in the form of a shuttle bus from Echo Transportation in Big Piney. A shuttle to the ski area is now being offered for youth 18 and under. It is a small shuttle, so reservations are required. The shuttle is free to any youth who is a White Pine Junior Snowsports Club member. To all others, the shuttle is a $2 round-trip fee.

25th Annual Wreath & Chocolate Auction (posted 12/9/18)
Fundraiser for the Museum of the Mountain Man
Dawn Ballou, Pinedale Online!
The Museum of the Mountain Man held their annual Wreath & Chocolate Auction on Friday, December 7th in the Lovatt Room of the Pinedale Library. This year was the 25th anniversary of the event, which is a fundraiser for the Museum. Money raised goes towards next year’s programs and exhibits. The Museum is run by the Sublette County Historical Society.

Executive Director Clint Gilchrist said there were 34 hand-made wreaths that had been donated for this year’s live auction and 32 chocolate treats in the silent auction. He said over the 25 years there have been over 250 wreath donors helping the Museum. Memory books were placed on each table with newspaper articles and the advertisements through all the years of the wreath auction.

Several people were recognized for their contributions to the Wreath Auction over the years. Julie Early originally came up with the idea to do the wreath auction and has contributed a wreath every year. Auctioneer Jay Fear has been auctioneer for 18 straight years and has also donated a wreath each of those years. First Bank has sponsored the food for the Wreath Auction for the past 17 years. Prior to having their sponsorship, the Museum had charged an entry fee of $3 to $5 for admission to the event. Mark and Cheryl Eatinger of Rio Verde Engineering was recognized for being at the very first Wreath Auction and donating a wreath nearly every year since. Annette Pape has brought her delicious hand-made chocolates for close to twenty years. Sage and Snow Garden Club has donated a wreath for the past 15 years and many times has been picked as the "People’s Choice" fan favorite.

Food and punch was generously sponsored by First Bank. Moose Creek Catering provided the food.

Gilchrist said, "After 25 years, it is amazing the community support we still get. Great turn out, a lot of fun, and raised a lot of money for the Museum."
