Stampede volunteer Myron Snyder receives Top Hand honor

Myron Snyder, a 24-year Greeley Stampede volunteer, was named the Top Hand of the Year award winner for 2015 by his peers.

The Top Hand award is given annually through the Stampede’s volunteer support group, the Wranglers, to the most outstanding member of the previous year, a press release said.

“It’s his positive attitude and work ethic that made Myron the obvious choice for this year’s Top Hand award,” said Wrangler President Nichole Lichtenberg. “You can find Myron on the park 24-hours a day, smiling.”

The Wranglers, the Stampede’s longest standing volunteer organization, has 300 members. They handle everything from large-event traffic control to the cold beverages Stampede patrons enjoy, a press release said. Ice is where Snyder excels.

He serves on the vendor subcommittee of the larger beverage committee. He ensures vendors throughout the park have ice.

Snyder will take a leadership position and will be the volunteer in charge of each of the vendor subcommittee in 2016.
