Lighter Fare At Old Bill’s Breakfast

Plans are taking shape for the 16th Annual Old Bill’s Fun Run for Charities, September 8th with one major change in store for participants.  In the past, participants had been served hot breakfast burritos, sweet rolls and fruit along with fruit juices after the race.  This year, Old Bills Spokesperson Nicki McDermott says the participants will receive lighter refreshments provided at the town square. McDermott says those will include a yogurt parfait, made with locally-produced granola from the Bunnery which is also providing the other items for the breakfast.  McDermott explains that fire regulations have limited what can be done with the post-race foods due to the limited space, and that has dictated they be limited to cold refreshments.  Over the past fifteen years, the event has raised nearly $83-million dollars for the area’s non-profits — $7¾-million dollars last year alone.  McDermott says this year, about 210 organizations are participating in the fundraising event.  Those helping raise the money for their favorite organizations can walk or run various lengths of the race, either competitively or recreationally.  Once again, over 3,500 people are anticipated for what has become one of the biggest celebrations of community spirit and support in the country. In addition to the Fun Run and Walk, the event will have entertainment, food and informational booths set up around the town square through the morning.

I was a little fella once, and I remember counting down the days until December 25th. There were no visions of sugarplums, but pocket knives, snowshoes, shotguns […]
  • Happy Thanksgiving, Wyoming! - November 27, 2014
    I know, a show about giving thanks on Thanksgiving is pretty predictable. But it doesn’t feel right to overlook the importance of this day. However, because this is a program about the outdoors, I’ll just talk about the things in the outdoors I’m thankful for. There’s plenty of it. Especially here in Wyoming. We’ve got […]
  • Pelts are nearing prime conditions - November 26, 2014
    The days are getting shorter and the nights are getting longer. It’s the amount of daylight, and not the temperature, that causes wild animals to grow longer, thicker coats. If you’re a predator hunter or a trapper, that’s your cue. The pelts are coming into their prime right now, but that doesn’t mean they’re at […]
