Green River Wyoming is located in the south west corner of the state. If you have driven I-80 across the state and passed through twin tunnels, you have passed by a wonderful town! Nestled in between gorgeous rock formations with the Green River running through the heart of the town, it is an oasis in the "High Desert Country."
The River has been the drawing point for early settlers and has served as a transportation hub for the Overland Trail, Cherokee Trail, Lincoln Highway, Union Pacific Transcontinental Railroad, and now Interstate 80. John Wesley Powell was attracted to the towns proximity to the railroad and river and began his two river expeditions from "Expedition Island". The second trip he discovered the Grand Canyon. Thomas Moran, early western artist, painted several renderings of the cliffs just west of town. Tollgate and the Palisades are sometimes misnamed as the "Cliffs along the Colorado."

This year the URA/Main Street Agency is combining two traditional events into one gathering to kick off the Christmas Season, and celebrate community and good will. The event, Santa’s Arrival & the Mayor’s Tree Lighting Ceremony will take place from 3:30 pm to 5:30 pm, Saturday December 14th, 2013. Please remember to bring a non-perishable food item for the food bank.
There will be a few vendors from downtown businesses, hot beverages and gifts for the kids, not to mention Santa – so make sure your little ones bring their lists. The park will be decorated and we will have heating lamps and fire pits manned by volunteer Boy Scouts to drive ol’ Jack Frost away.
The URA/Main Street is holding this holiday event in Centennial Park and we hope that it will be just the start of a long tradition in Green River. As this event grows over the years we would like it to become a Holiday Village with a vintage feeling of sentimentally reminiscent of a simpler time. In the future, we hope to have multiple vendors, Christmas carolers, and children’s activities.
Events like this do not just magically happen; some of your neighbors give of themselves, their time and energy, to help to create special events for their community. We would like this event to grow, to improve our other events and find new ways to serve our community and businesses. We need your help to make that happen. Please consider volunteering with URA/Main Street; we need people with vision and energy and who are willing to spare a little of their time to make Green River and even more wonderful place to live.
Get into the Christmas spirit and join us on December 14th for what will be a fun and festive afternoon for the whole family! For more information contact us at 307- 872-0592 or visit our Facebook page Green River Urban Renewal/ Main Street Agency.

Any community’s future lies in the quality and dedication of its public elected officials and private sector leaders. In order to lead any community forward leaders must be willing to critically look at the past, study the present and plan for the future. Such a course of action takes a strong commitment to analyze the communities strengths and weakness and to educate and encourage new leaders to step forward to work toward that future.
The Rock Springs Chamber of Commerce and the Green River Chamber of Commerce joined together to provide the educational opportunities to develop and enhance leadership skills among the residents of Sweetwater County, along with WWCC. The resulting Sweetwater County Leadership Institute is currently offering its fifteenth program in 2014.
