“IT’S THE CHEYENNE THING TO DO…”

That’s how Bill Dubois, a 2004 inductee in the Cheyenne Frontier Days™ Hall of Fame, replied when asked why he had been volunteering for more than four decades in a variety of capacities at the “Daddy of ’em All®.” “It’s the Cheyenne thing to do” for tens of hundreds of volunteers who provide the people power to produce what arguably is the largest outdoor western celebration in the world. Today, more than 2,500 volunteers work around the calendar to produce an event that  includes parades, pancake breakfasts, world-class concerts, chili and chuckwagon cook-offs, carnival, exhibits, Indian Village, military open houses and performances by the United States Air Force Thunderbirds, and of course the event that started it all nine Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) rodeos.

I’ve volunteered since I was really little at Chute 9. Frontier Days is my favorite time of the year. I tell everyone it’s my favorite holiday. This is my first year with the Rodeo Committee. I have enjoyed my assignments like helping with slack and working the rodeos. Karly T., Frontier Nights Fan and Long-Time CFD Volunteer
