Rotary hears about CNFR
On Monday, May 3, the Rotary Club of Casper is honored to welcome Roger Walters, commissioner of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA), at its noon luncheon meeting at the Ramkota Hotel. The meeting will also be held via Zoom. Rotary Club members and guests are invited.
Walters has been the commissioner of the NIRA for 13 years. During his time as NIRA commissioner, he was instrumental in two multi-year renewals of the CNFR being hosted in Casper, including the newest agreement that guarantees that the CNFR will remain in Casper through 2027. 2021 will be Roger’s last year as commissioner and he will be sorely missed by the CNFR Committee, Casper businesses, fans and beyond.
Roger owned a pest control business for eight years and a truck wash business for five years. He worked at Sam Houston State University for 32 years as a teacher and rodeo coach.
The Natrona County Library will host an afterschool craft program for students in grades 4-6 at 4 p.m., on Monday, May 3, in the Crawford Room. The kiddos will be using cardboard, sharpies, a ruler, and a bit of math, create a magnet of your favorite Minecraft creeper that can be displayed proudly on a refrigerator or anywhere else magnets are attracted! All supplies provided at no cost. Call 577-7323 or visit our website for more information.
