These Flint Hills cowboys stop for a small celebration after a successful rodeo, circa 1959. Dale “Little Red” Wilson, left was known to be a great storyteller, and a second, unidentified cowboy, center, and Ron Pletcher appear to be enjoying the tale. Photo courtesy Shirley Pletcher.

We appreciate everyone who made the Wamego Community Foundation Match Day a success. 72 separate gifts were received and we raised over $23,000! The funds are used toward the rehabilitation of the facade of the Farmers Union Coop building, also known as the annex.
