Cokeville Pioneer days

The Grand Marshals for this year’s parade were President and Sister Southward of the Idaho, Pocatello Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

It’s time to start thinking about the Lincoln County Fair and the Cokeville Community Booth. This year’s theme is “Just a Small Town Throw Down.” Kelsie Teichert is the chairman and would love to have all your entries so don’t wait till the last minute and start gathering those items. Books are available at the town library and online at http://lincolncountyfair.info. Jan Moody is also happy to help get your items preregistered. Online registration is due by July 31.

Saturday, July 20 Cokeville celebrated Pioneer Day with a host of fun activities. The day began with a parade down Main Street. This year’s theme was “Leave a Legacy, Stand for Truth”. The parade was followed by a wonderful program with guest speakers, President and Sister Southward of the Idaho, Pocatello Mission of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Throughout the day, there were yummy things to eat at the park and craft vendors. The Pioneer Day Rodeo was held at the Cokeville Stockman Arena that evening. The final event of the day was a dance at the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Thanks to all the volunteers who made the day a great success.
