And no, I don’t mean going on a diet, but you should stop by the Premier Bone and Joint Center here in Laramie for any of your aches and pains. The Premiere Bone and Joint Center, previously known as Gem City Bone and Joint, is an excellent center for orthopedic care, sports medicine, and physical therapy. With their many offices located in Laramie, Casper, Cheyenne, Douglas, Gillette, Green River, Rawlins, Riverton, Rock Springs, Torrington, and Wheatland, they serve the Wyoming people very well. The current practice can trace its origin back to 1973, when it was founded by Dr. David A Kieffer who partnered up with Dr. Robert J. Curnow three years later. The practice now employs nine physicians and over 120 other members of the staff. If you live in Laramie, you likely have heard of them while attending University of Wyoming athletic events.

Go check out Ames Monument!

Go check out Ames Monument!

on May 22, 2014 in Ames Monument, Explore Laramie, Laramie, Laramie Summer, Recreation, To do in Laramie, University of Wyoming | 0 comments

Many locals and visitors a like know about exploring and climbing at Vedauwoo or hiking in Curt Gowdy State Park during the warmer summer months. What some might not be aware of is Ames Monument. While Ames Monument might not have as much to look at or to do as the Vedauwoo and the state park, it is still something everyone should check out! Ames Monument is an impressive structure standing in basically the middle of nowhere. The pyramid like formation stands 60-feet tall and was erected in honor of brothers Oliver and Oakes Ames. The monument was built by the Union Pacific Railroad Company in 1882 to pay tribute to the brothers who were absolutely instrumental in getting the Transcontinental Railroad built. The monument was built on the highest elevation (8,247 feet) of the original transcontinental route. Ames Monument can be found off of the same exit as Vedauwoo, just in the opposite direction. As you are headed east in the direction of Cheyenne, Wyo., take exit 329. You will them take a right turn towards the monument (there is a sign), then just follow the road until you see the monument. It will be hard to miss due to the height and size. We would highly recommend checking the monument out during the few warmer months we get each year. It has interesting history and is surprising to see, because you would have never guessed it was there by just looking off the Interstate. Enjoy the summer and exploring in and around Laramie,...

Go the GREEN way to get to the airport

on May 8, 2014 in DIA Airport Shuttle, Green Ride Colorado, Laramie, Laramie Chamber Business Alliance, Transportation, University of Wyoming | 0 comments

The University of Wyoming graduation is just two days away and summer is just around the corner. If you are headed out of town for the end of school year or  for any occasion this summer, consider taking Green Ride Colorado to and from the Denver International Airport. You won’t have to worry about parking and you can feel good about the service you are using because they try to be as environmentally friendly as possible. Green Ride Colorado services the Laramie and Cheyenne area and several parts of Colorado. According to their website, “Green Ride offers private charter service and can accommodate up to three groups of 30 people at a time with services between Wyoming and Colorado and between DIA and Fort Collins.” A full schedule of their times and pricing can be found here, but a single adult fare with pick up from either UW or the Hilton in Laramie costs $75 for a one way trip. Not only is Green Ride an easy solution to traveling to the airport, but they are also a company that believes in bettering the environment. By providing group transportation they are taking a least one car off the road that could have otherwise put harmful admissions into air. Not only do they drive with GREEN in mind, but their entire business is built on green ideas.

Spring Break Good Morning Laramie Recap

Spring Break Good Morning Laramie Recap

on May 1, 2014 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

At the beginning of last month, the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance hosted a spring break themed Good Morning Laramie show at the Laramie Country Club. For those of our members who were unable to attend or those who were not aware of Good Morning Laramie, here is a recap of the most recent event, we hope to see you next time! Good Morning Laramie is an energized and high paced networking event available to member businesses of the Laramie Chamber Business Alliance. The show is designed with our members in mind, we want you to have the opportunity to be able to connect with other business professionals like yourself and tell them about your business and what you contribute to the community. The event on April 4, started bright and early at 7:30 a.m. with a gourmet breakfast buffet provided by the Laramie Country Club. Business guests were then entertained by the Entertainment Sponsor- Laramie Fire Extinguisher Services, LLC. Dan, Dave and Todd entertained the crowd with oldies hits, all done in their spring break attire – Hawaiian shirts. The event was emceed by the lovely Bridget and Denise. They energetically entertained and joked with the crowd. One of the most exciting times of the event was when a random LCBA member was picked to give a 30 second speech about their business or an upcoming event, the tricky part was that they had to beat the gong. If they were even a one half second over their time limit a gong would sound and they would have to sit down. Throughout the event there were several networking events that allowed members to get out of their chairs and get talking with other busineses. The most entertaining of them all was when everyone was instructed to make the sounds of a certain animal found on their placemat. If they could make that sound and find another member with the same sound, the pair could introduce themselves and give a short speech about their business. Overall the show was a sucess with many businesses able to connect with others, and having some fun while doing it! A big thank you again to all the sponsors of the event. Gold- Powell Title & Escrow, 1-80 Towing, and McCarty Honda Nissan , Silver- The Mortgage Source, Homestead Physical Therapy, and...
