Kid's Fishing Day was great fun! The weather cooperated with blue skies, minimal wind and warm temperatures. About 70 kids and their families registered and attended the 11th annual event, which this year was held at the CCC Ponds, instead of the Town Park, and coincided with the CCC dedication.

Saturday, June 3rd, is FREE Day at the Museum of the Mountain Man from 10 am until 6 pm. Admission is normally $4 for Adults, $3 for Senior Citizens, and $2 for children 6-12 years old. The Museum presents a visual and interpretative experience into the romantic era of the mountain man and provides a comprehensive overview of the Western Fur Trade's historical significance. The Museum is situated in the heart of the country that was once the hub of the Rocky Mountain Rendezvous system. Six of the rendezvous of the early 1800s were held in the Green River Valley near present day Pinedale, Wyoming.
The dedication of the new Pinedale Skateboard Park was held last Saturday. The Sublette County Sheriff's Office sponsored a barbecue to kick off the grand opening, and kids of all ages lined up to test the equipment. The new park was built by donations and fundraisers from the community. Kids, parents, and local businesses all agreed that a dedicated park was needed as more and more boarders, skaters and bikers use any available jump and bump to get the thrill of some air. The next addition planned for the park is a half-pipe, which will cost an extra $15,000. Anyone interested in contributing to the park can contact Undersheriff Henry Schmidt the Sublette County Sheriff's Office. firstname.lastname@example.org
