It’s back ! The 3rd Annual Oktoberfest hosted by the Buffalo Chamber of Commerce is right around the corner with lots of fun and excitement. The Home Brew Competition for local home brewers during our 3rd Annual Oktoberfest on Saturday September 22, 2012. Of course the centerpiece event is a contest for brewers far and wide who are challenged to bring in and enter their own brews in 8 different brewing categories
Kitty Merrill, President of the Buffalo Wyoming Board of Realtors, and one of the members of the Buffalo Board of Realtors who originally nominated DawnWexo earlier this year, announced that she had been informed that Weco of the historic Occidental Hotel in Buffalo, Wyoming has been chosen Business Person of 2012 by the Wyoming Board of Realtors
Well they have garnered a bit of local celebrity after having just successfully “kickstarted” their Buffalo Main Street Clear Creek Brewery on Kickstarter to the tune of over $25 grand. And now a good bit later than they originally thought they were going to open … they are finally going to open their doors and sell some of their own beer at Buffalo’s Oktoberfest on Saturday, September 22.
Wasting food is bad for US Family Economy: For the average US household of four, food waste dumps $1,350 to $2,275 of our food budget down the drain each year! Wasting food is bad for our waistlines, too. Research shows that people unintentionally eat more calories when they’re faced with larger portions. This translates into a lot of extra — unneeded and unwanted — calories (and pounds).
Families in Wyoming and this region are still hurting economically so we decided to see if we could help in some typical areas where expenses run high but are consumer items that are important to our quality of life: Food, health (we’ll be looking at preventive and dental solutions separately), cellphones and, of course, TV programming. We think the Mini Solution can save the average family about $5000 cash a year – that’s $5000 more clams in YOUR POCKET each and every year from making these simple (but not always easy changes)!
