On March 8, Cody Culture Club presents its third event of the season, complete with heavy hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and a program about The History of dude ranching. The event—for anyone and everyone with an interest in the Cody community—takes place at the Cody Club Room (1240 Beck Avenue) from 5:30–7:30 p.m.
The program promises to be a fascinating one exploring the evolution of dude ranching in this area and beyond by those who know it best: three families whose own dude ranches go back generations. Presenters include members of the Dominick Family from 7D Ranch, the Fales Family from Rimrock Ranch, and the Ferguson Family from Eaton’s Ranch.
Cody Culture Club takes place every second Thursday from January–April. Founded by members of the community, the organization joins with the Buffalo Bill Center of the West to celebrate the unique culture of Cody, Wyoming, by offering insightful programs inspired by the Center’s extraordinary collections. This season is generously sponsored by Burg Simpson, P.C., Carlene Lebous & Harris Haston, and the UPS Store.
Tickets for the event are $20 each at the door, available at the door or online at centerofthewest.org/codycultureclub. The final Cody Culture Club event of this season takes place April 12 at the Buffalo Bill Center of the West, when Phil Roberts, PhD, presents Prohibition in Park County: Encounters with the “Noble Experiment,” 1919–1933.
