CASPER, Wyo. — Fort Caspar Museum will be hosting a “Lunch and Learn” event from noon to 2 p.m. Saturday, June 25 featuring a presentation about the history of the Wyoming state flag.
Historian Kylie McCormick will deliver a talk titled “The Wyoming State Flag and the Women Who Made It Fly.” Wyoming became a state in 1890 but still didn’t have an official state flag as late as 1916.
“Learn how a determined group of women set about changing that, and how, in just a few months’ time, [they] saw their proposed design ratified in January 1917,” Fort Caspar said.
In order to get an optional lunch of fried chicken, sides, dessert and a beverage, people need to make reservations by Thursday by calling the museum at 307-235-8462. The cost for the lunches is $5 for Fort Caspar Museum Association members and $8 for others. People who don’t want the lunch can still attend the lecture if they pay museum admission.
Fort Caspar Museum is located at 4001 Fort Caspar Road in Casper.
