CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) Sweets and refreshments were not the only items on display at Shepherd of the Valley’s Fall Festival on Friday. Residents were able to showcase their talents through different art pieces.

“It’s good therapy for me. Not only for my hands but piece of mind. If I didn’t have these to do, I don’t know what I would do here,” Vernon “Sparky” Curtis, Shepherd of the Valley resident, said.
It takes Sparky days to put together these works and if you look closely you can tell they are puzzles.
All of the money generated from the fall festival stays with Shepherd of the Valley. The money then goes to the needs of the residents. Needs can range from items residents need on a daily basis, to Christmas presents during the holiday season.
“Being able to meet the needs of people is what’s really important. Whether it’s a small need or a great need,” Marilyn Skoger, auxiliary leader at Shepherd of the Valley, said.
Skoger thanks the community for helping Shepherd of the Valley put on events like their fall festival.
