The Museum of the Mountain Man held their 14th annual Wreath and Chocolate Auction on Friday, December 8, at Rendezvous Pointe in Pinedale.
There were over 50 beautiful wreaths, decorations and decorative items donated for the cause. The largest amount paid was for the Gayle Kinnison Memorial Wreath, which went for $1500. Gayle McMurry Kinnison was a long-time supporter of the Museum.
The public choice favorite wreath award was shared by the Sage & Snow Garden Club for their beautiful star wreath and by Three Peaks Ranch-NOLS (Nikki Mann and Jeff Wohl) for their unique driftwood and antler wreath.
Sublette County Historical Society Board Member Jay Fear served as auctioneer. All money raised goes to support the efforts and programs of the Museum of the Mountain Man in Pinedale.
This year's Wreath Auction was generously sponsored by First Bank of Pinedale.
