                      Thursday, December 21, 2017

  Ms. CHENEY. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to extend my congratulations to 
Al and Penny Twomey on being selected for the 2017 Wyoming CARES 
Volunteer of the Year Award. This outstanding accomplishment is a sign 
of their commitment to our community and to our great state.
   Wyoming CARES is a statewide non-profit with the goal of helping 
Wyoming residents who may find it necessary to seek temporary 
assistance and often have trouble receiving it. Al and Penny have been 
supporting and participating in the organization for over 20 years. 
They have become particularly involved in its largest annual 
fundraiser, the Ride with the Winds Bike Tour, for which Penny rode the 
50-mile trail this year. I thank them for their dedication and many 
contributions to the program and to helping the people of our great 
state.
   Again, Mr. Speaker, I would like to extend my congratulations to Al 
and Penny Twomey. They deserve to be extremely proud of this 
accomplishment.

                          ____________________
