Sagebrush and Roses

So this will be my first official ball at EWC and the first dude and I are rather excited.  He is wearing something besides jeans…….. and I suspect will look better than usual.  I have a fabulous gown and hope it fits.  It did when I got it, but you know how that goes.  Wednesday morning biscuits and gravy at the school cafeteria; a few of their specials like chicken fried steak, burritos, etc. and next thing you know the gown does not fit.  So, I have plan B.  Let’s hope I don’t have to use plan B.  You still have time to buy your tickets.  Call Holly Lara at 532-8397 to get your reservations.  Don’t miss out on the BIG EVENT in Torrington for Eastern Wyoming College.

Basketball Home Games!!!

The Women’s Lancer play McCook on Friday, January 19th at 5:30 p.m. at home.  The Men follow at 7:30 playing McCook.  At half-time we will honor our Golf Team with their Region IX Championship.  Saturday follow basketball at home.  The Lady Lancers play North Platte at 2:00 and the men play North Platte at 4:00.  The action is right here in Torrington.  Join us!
