September was National Mortgage Professional Month, and First Northern Bank of Wyoming celebrated by introducing each of their mortgage lenders on Facebook.
One such real estate expert is Ashley Jastren, one of our Chamber Energizers and a 2018 graduate of our Gillette Area Leadership Institute.
"I have two wonderful boys, Joshua (7 years old) and Landon (3 years old). We also have two dogs, Brudus and Buddie," Ashley writes. "When I'm not working, I enjoy spending time with my family. We all enjoy camping, fishing, and anything outdoors."
Ashley also volunteers in community food drives and for the Salvation Army.
A comment and a like on Ashley's bio (or one of their other three home lenders) earned you a chance at winning a $1200 mortgage payment for October. The winner was Ashley Musselman Kolb. Congrats to both Ashleys!
The Wyoming Farmers' Market Association is heading in to their twelfth year hosting an annual conference for local farmer's markets.
This year the program will kick off with "Foodpreneur" Marty Butts, owner of Small Potatoes, a national marketing, advocacy and consulting firm that specializes in working with small scale and start-up food product companies seeking to launch and grow their businesses. Marty will discuss how to start production, market and SELL your food products.
The conference will also feature specialists from the University of Wyoming like Cole Ehmke, and presenters like Tate Belden, founder of the Natrona County Beekeeper's Association. For those of you interested in greenhouses, a "Dome Greenhouse Building Workshop" will be offered starting Friday afternoon. The conference is September 28 - 29 in Casper, and you can find a schedule and more information at WyomingFarmersMarkets.org. Registration for the conference is $50 for both days, and includes lunches.
