Friday, December 20. Make it a traditional Christmas complete with a visit from Santa Claus, and little kids joyfully singing.
Bondurant moms predict a great Christmas program presented by the kids. Come and join the fun, meet Santa, and wish your neighbors a joyful season!
Bring sandwiches for your family, and COOKIES to share.
Be sure to let Santa's elves (a.k.a. Meghan or Stacy) know if you'll be bringing children to the party.
5:30 pm at St. Hubert The Hunter church in mid-town Bondurant. All are welcome!
Sunday, August 18, noon. You know you always wanted to be a fireman - or at least wanted to hang out at the fire station. Now is your chance!
Join the intrepid men and women of the Bondurant Volunteer Fire Department at their annual Open House. You can meet the volunteers, see the trucks up-close (so cool!) and maybe even be inspired to serve your community by joining the department.
If somehow that doesn't tempt you, lunch at the picnic grounds - featuring fried chicken and homemade ice cream - surely will! Fun for all, and all are welcome.
At the Fire Department next door to the Church, South Hwy 191.
Sunday, August 11, 2013: This morning a gleeful June Sweede, Heritage Days Mastermind and Raffle coordinator, reported that "between the luscious bake sale, raffle tickets, lunch and rummage sale, the [Bondurant Community] Club made close to $3,400 at this year's Heritage Days!"
This year's Raffle prize winners are (drum roll, please):
Tom Foreman, a visitor who bought the winning ticket from his friends Tom and Ginger Rooks, won Claudia's unique and colorful "Summer Breeze" quilt (left). The quilt is another delightful example of Claudia's amazing design and sewing skills, and Tom will surely treasure it as a reminder of his visit to Bondurant.
Once again, Pauline Robertson sold a winning ticket - this year to Barbara Pape of Daniel Junction. Barbara will enjoy the charming "Wildlife Family" print donated by the family of the late Eileen Dockham - see a photo of the framed art print here.
Proceeds of the annual events go to meet the Bondurant Community Club's expenses and charitable donations. As June reminds us, "Everyone who came and made the day a success, from the donors to helpers to crafters - you are all winners!"
Call or email Pat to add or comment on an event:
It's a fact that every single person in Bondurant is talented and interesting and noteworthy (and all the children are above average). Yet somehow we narrowed the field down to just 12 photos!

October 19, 2012: Bondurant is one of approximately 80 rural Wyoming post offices under scrutiny of the POST Plan, to be either discontinued or have their hours cut. At Friday's community meeting, Gary Sims, Manager of Post Office Operations in Wyoming, presented the Service's plans.
Gary told us that of 190 surveys sent to Bondurant postal patrons, 123 surveys were returned. 99% of respondents requested "realignment of hours" of operation, as opposed to closing the post office completely. Therefore, said Gary, reduced retail hours for the location will likely be:
9:00 a.m. - 3:30 p.m. (with lunch from 12:00 - 12:30) Monday-Friday
8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. Saturday
The change will become effective 30 days from posting notice - check the post office bulletin board for times.
Gary emphasized that income from rural post offices will greatly influence any future plans concerning the service. So - buy your stamps and post your packages from Bondurant whenever you have a chance - instead of from Pinedale or Jackson! Every dollar will count toward keeping our local post office alive. Send any additional questions or comments to Gary Sims.
Thanks to those who responded to their surveys and to those who attended the meeting. Keep those cards and letters, um, going!
Friday, October 5, 2012: WyDOT announced that the speed limit through Bondurant will remain unchanged.
Thanks to everyone who acted decisively to help keep our street safe!
October 5, 2012: Today, Citizens For the Wyoming Range announced that PXP has agreed to accept an offer to purchase their leases in the Wyoming Range. This means that the company will abandon all plans to drill in the Upper Hoback, for their part in the $8.5 million deal.
Contact Dan for more information or to help buy out the leases, one acre at a time.
August 29, 2012, Flo Shepard read from and discussed her new book Sometimes Creek to the delight of a full house. Books were purchased and autographed, and neighbors visited over cookies and coffee.
Thanks to Flo for sharing a wonderful evening, and for donating the proceeds from the evening's sales of Sometimes Creek to Bondurant Library's ongoing restoration.
August 22, 2011: It was a beautiful day for a ball game!
Despite the haze of smoke from distant wildland fires, enthusiastic sports fans gathered at the River Bend Ranch for a pot luck tail-gate supper right, then retired to the field for some fun...

Right Tanner (June's grandson) lunges for the ball as a runner approaches base...
Thanks to Bill, Martha, Tony and Stacey for the field. Thanks to Jay Sweede for the pics.
June 6, 2012. Children's colorful artwork adorns the new LVE station. You can admire six "fine feathered friends" on the new station behind Bondurant's Post Office.
Thanks to Arlene and Missy and the Bondurant Elementary School art class.
July 8, 2012. Bondurant fire fighters responded valiantly to the BIG blowout at the summer homes in Middle Piney Creek last week. Above, Richard Thomas and Tam Halling pause in full gear before threatened homes.
Bondurant volunteers have been working on the this local fire since June 24th, and continue to work with Federal resources to contain and protect assets located in the area. The prep work done by firefighters saved all of the summer cabins from the fire as it moved north through the Wyoming Range.
This is living proof that "Firewise" homes CAN withstand a forest fire with a bit of help from resources on hand.
Visit the Bondurant Fire Department Open House (August 19 - see article left) and contact Fire Chief Richard for more information on Grant funding available in Sublette County to make your home FIREWISE.

Sunday , June 8, 2012: Following a warming lunch of chili and cookies, community members cleaned and dusted all the new and old logs of the Bondurant Library.
Monday, June 9, 2012: The next day, hearty souls donned plastic gloves and big smiles for a day of staining the newly-restored building. In the early afternoon, everyone took a break to sing and eat cake in honor of Jim Brinkerhoff's birthday. Work was resumed, and the job completed by mid-afternoon.
The stain color was chosen as the lightest color available - it shows paler on the new wood and darker on aged wood. The stain will protect the logs from deterioration brought on by UV radiation and general weathering.
If we keep up this good work, it will become easier every year. Join us each spring for ongoing maintenance coats!
Will resume in the Spring
