Gayle McMurry Kinnison Memorial Wreath
This special wreath is in honor of Museum benefactor Gayle McMurry Kinnison. Each year, the winning bidder could keep the wreath for that year, then had to redecorate it and bring it back the following year so it could be re-auctioned. Over ten years, it has raised more than $15,000 for the Museum. This wreath is being retired from the auction, but will be brought back for display each year.

Museum of the Mountain Man 2017 Wreath & Chocolate Auction
by Dawn Ballou, Pinedale Online!
December 5, 2017

The Museum of the Mountain Man held their 24th Annual Wreath & Chocolate Auction on Friday, December 1st in the Lovatt Room of the Pinedale Library. The annual event is a fundraiser for the Museumís programs and events for the upcoming year.

Each year, members of the community create beautiful hand-made wreaths and holiday displays for the event, somehow managing to come up with even more gorgeous and grander creations than the year before. The artistic creativity and craftsmanship in these pieces is truly breathtaking. In addition to the live auction for the holiday wreaths, they also have a silent auction for home-made chocolate delights and other items. This year there were 35 wreaths and creations donated for the live auction and 23 silent auction items. Julie Early arranged the wreath for the display around the room,

The food and beverages were generously donated by 1st Bank, and the catering was done by The Den. Auctioneer for the event was Jay Fear.

The Museum of the Mountain Man and Sublette County Historical Society would like to thank the following people, organizations and businesses:
