Groundbreaking began in a big way today at Frontier Park in Cheyenne for a new, seven million dollar, multi-purpose building that will serve as Cheyenne Frontier Days headquarters and a lot more. Officials on hand for the ceremony included Lynne Boomgaarden, a state supreme court justice and Cheyenne native with long ties to the western celebration. She was the first woman named to the event’s General Committee and recently served as its board chairman. Cheyenne Frontier Days President and CEO Tom Hirsig presided over the gathering. His family dates back to the rodeo’s earliest days more than 120 years ago.
