December 3, 2015
The Museum of the Mountain Man – Sublette County Historical Society will hold their 22nd annual Christmas Wreath & Chocolate Auction on Friday, December 4th in the Lovatt Room of the Pinedale Library. The event includes a live auction for beautiful hand-made holiday wreaths and a silent auction featuring chocolate and gift baskets. Cocktails and Silent Auction start at 6PM, live auction starts at 7PM. Jay Fear, prior SCHS Board President, serves as the Auctioneer. This is the main fundraiser for the Sublette County Historical Society and the Museum of the Mountain Man. The funds raised help support programs and projects for the following year. The food is generously sponsored by First Bank.
One of the special wreaths in the auction is the Gayle McMurry Kinnison memorial wreath. Shell Oil Company started a tradition of buying the wreath and then donating it back so it could be re-auctioned for the cause. Today, a condition of buying this special wreath is that whoever buys it must bring it back again the next year, and in perpetuity, freshened up with new greenery and decorations, to be re-auctioned to benefit the museum. Gayle Kinnison was a wonderful supporter of the Museum and its programs, and this wreath is a tribute in commemoration of her kind heart. She passed away in 2006 and is dearly missed by our community.
