Saturday was Hero Appreciation Day and Cheyenne turned out to celebrate our military, veterans, police, State Patrol, fire and first responders teachers, educators, and organizations that do so much for our community.

Governor Matt Mead declared the third Saturday in September the official observance and some cities and towns had their own observances.

It’s a chance for the family to get to know those who protect and serve us without fear and get any questions answered. Cheyenne Marian Orr addressed the crowd at the VA from the stage where Whiskey’s Alibi also performed.

Thanks to all of the heroes making a better, safer, Wyoming and to Teri Landreth for the photos.
