ANNUAL FIELD TRIPS

Weather permitting, our grandparents have often enjoyed one last blast as a close to their school year.  Field trips have included a wagon ride at the Deerwood Ranch Wild Horse Ecosanctuary in Centennial, The Brinton Museum in Big Horn, and UW’s American Heritage Archives in Laramie.

ANNUAL ICE CREAM SOCIAL

Who doesn’t love ice cream?  National Service volunteers (Foster Grandparents) and members (VISTA, AmeriCorps VISTA, NCCC) have gathered during AmeriCorps week to share ice cream and talk about National Service.

CONVENINGS

Our Foster Grandparents enjoy gathering with other AmeriCorps Seniors volunteers for learning, fellowship and fun.  Whether it’s in Cheyenne for the 2017 Wyoming Senior Corps Round-Up, a convening in Casper with other National Service members, or in Laramie at the Higher Ground Fair, our Foster Grandparents go the extra mile (literally!).

FOSTER GRANDPARENT & FRIENDS YOUNG@HEART CHOIR

A true multi-generational and community collaboration between our program, the University of Wyoming Choral Studies students and Director, and the Laramie Community Choir.

GARAGE SALE

Proceeds from this sale were shared with Home on the Range Animal Rescue.

KID'S SUMMER MOVIES

Kid's Summer Movies - Since 2017, Studio City has partnered with us to promote their Kids’ Summer Movie events. FGWR shares a portion of its earnings with volunteer site partners.

SPRING RECOGNITION EVENTS

After serving all year, it’s time for US to pamper our volunteers and thank them for their tireless commitment to their communities.

9/11 & MLK SERVICE PROJECTS

Whether it’s letter writing to Wyoming Vets, baking cookies for local Fire Companies, helping out on the children’s backpack program or our pet food drive, our seniors care about and serve for a wide range of causes.
