“I am of the opinion that my life belongs to the whole community and, as long as I live, it is my privilege to do for it whatever I can. I want to be thoroughly used up when I die; for the harder I work, the more I live.” – George Bernard Shaw
Whooee — what a great Lilac Days! Thanks to all that came, sponsored, volunteered or supported our community.

They include Big Horn REA, Security State Bank, TCT, Big Horn Co-op, Queen Bee Gardens, Basin Police Department, Cody Regional Health, Basin City Arts Center, Gottsche, Basin First Baptist, Valley Hardware, The Town of Basin, Basin Rec, North Platte Walleye Unlimited and Friends of the Basin Library.
Next up is the June chamber member meeting on June 13 at noon. June 15 is the town-wide yard sale. Forms to sign up for the yard sale can be found in the chamber foyer at 407 West C Street, Basin.

Our Vice President, who normally builds our map, will be out of town.
