League to sponsor pie social

The League of Women Voters will serve up pie, lemonade and political "stump" speeches in an old-fashioned pie social where the public can get a taste of candidates and their messages during this election season.

The pie social is 5:30-8 p.m. July 31 in the Cottonwood Room of the Laramie County Library, 2200 Pioneer Ave. Everyone is welcome to listen to brief speeches by the candidates.

Then the public will have a chance for a one-on-one conversation with the people who want their votes on Election Day.

All candidates on the ballot in Laramie County are invited to come or send a representative.

The primary election is Aug. 19, and the general election is Nov. 4.

The league also will sponsor forums for candidates who face primary opponents.

They will be at the Cheyenne City Council chambers in the Municipal Building, 2101 O'Neil Ave.

July 30 - Laramie County Commission and Mayor, 6-8 p.m.

Aug. 5 - Cheyenne City Council, 5-8 p.m.
