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.

“For more information, call the Museum at 307-235-8462, or visit our website at http://www.fortcasparwyoming.com,” the announcement stated.
