Community potluck planned to support federal employees


An alcohol-free, family

oriented community potluck is planned to

support federal employees not working or

impacted due to the federal government furlough.

The event will be Tuesday, Jan 15, from

5:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. in the Lovatt Room of the

Pinedale Library, 155 S. Tyler Ave.

The community is asked to join in providing a potluck dish to support employees who

have been furloughed or are not being paid.

Multiple community organizations are joining to express concern and caring for the

many community members working for federal agencies and wondering when they will

receive their next paychecks.

“We care for and rely on our public lands and programs and those who manage them

for our benefit,” said organizer Karla Bird. “We appreciate the care that these employees

give to their many tasks and we collectively hope for a swift resolution of funding issues.”

Bring a dish to share, if you can spare one, or bring your appetite and your own table

settings. A limited supply will be provided. There will be plenty of food if you are unable

to contribute.

Families are welcome and cooks are encouraged to share recipe copies.

To get additional informational, contact Karla Bird at 307-413-4619 or email

Organizations supporting this event include Sublette County Women’s Advocacy

Group and Upper Green River Trout Unlimited. n
