Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame extends nomination deadline
Breaking news in the cowboy world – nearly 20 nominations are in for the inaugural 2014 Class of Honorees to the new Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame (WCHF), with 9 of the 10 geographic Regions across the state represented. A number of families notified board members of their ongoing efforts to submit further nominations, so the deadline has been extended to Aug. 25.
The Wyoming Cowboy Hall of Fame plans to have a sizeable presence at Wyoming State Fair, which traditionally draws widely scattered portions of the ranch community together, so it is hoped many more families and individuals will become aware of WCHF and the golden opportunity to nominate the real cowboys they know or are related to. To accommodate this, the new deadline was set a few days after State Fair ends.
WCHF’s website has been up for some time at http://www.wyomingcowboyhalloffame.com along with an exciting informative Facebook page – but the public’s first up-close-and-personal contact opportunity will be offered August 14 during the WCHF Benefit Concert with Trinity Seeley at the Ruthe James Williams building and Courtyard, adjacent to the Pioneer Museum on the Wyoming State Fairgrounds. The event begins at 4 p.m., and includes a WCHF Benefit Silent Auction offering many unique and beautiful Wyoming items along with free Pioneer Museum tours where you can marvel at and enjoy their special Year of the Cowboy exhibits.
Those attending will have the privilege of becoming a WCHF supporter through their free will donation. After browsing and bidding the Silent Auction they can sit in the shade sipping complimentary ice water as the music of this working ranchhand/ranchwife mother-of-four touches their souls and rattles their roots.
Trinity’s music has attracted attention throughout the genre – named one of True West’s favorite western artists for 2012, nominated for the Western Music Association’s 2012 and ’13 Crescendo Award, and for Female Western Singer and the Academy of Western Artists Western Album of The Year in 2012. Rick Huff with Western Way explains, “Trinity grew up in the genuine western life and tradition, so she knows whereof she sings…and writes…and does both very well.”
