Long-time Riverton residents and pillars of the community, Rick and Josephine Gilpatrick, will be honored at the Boys & Girls Club of Riverton’s 2nd Annual Awards & Recognition Breakfast on Wednesday, April 27, at the Fremont Center at the Fremont County Fairgrounds. Rick and Josephine have worked tirelessly and given selflessly to make Riverton a place residents are proud to call home. Along with a special presentation to the Gilpatricks, the breakfast will also feature a keynote address by Rudy Reuttiger--the inspiration behind the movie, Rudy.

“Our love is for the state of Wyoming,” Josephine said. “Rick was born and bred here. It’s very important for us to make this community the best of all things, economically, fiscally, for the kids, and recreationally.”
Special guest speaker, Rudy Ruettiger, the inspiration behind the movie Rudy, will share a powerful message of “YES, I CAN,” which comes from his personal experiences of adversity and triumph and stays with his audiences forever. The son of an oil refinery worker and third of 14 children, Rudy rose from valleys of discouragement and despair to the pinnacles of success. Today, he is perhaps the most famous graduate of the University of Notre Dame and one of the most popular motivational speakers in the United States.
All proceeds support the Boys & Girls Club of Riverton. The Club opened in August, 2021, and offers out-of-school programming for youth in a safe environment with positive mentors.
