Casper's Peter Wold and Actor Henry Winkler, best known as "Fonzie" from the TV series "Happy Days", will be the special guests at the Boys and Girls Club of Central Wyoming's 19th Annual Awards and Recognition Breakfast.

Peter Wold is the 2017 honoree for the event. Here's more from the Boys and Girls Club of Central Wyoming:

"His favorite pastime of fishing turned into a career early in his life, but Peter Wold eventually followed in his father’s footsteps owning and managing Wold Oil Properties.  to be held on Sept. 20, 2017.

A Casper native, Wold earned a biological science degree from Colorado State University and went to work at a trout farm in Idaho.  Searching for more challenging endeavors, Peter returned to Wyoming and went to work for the late Tom Stroock as a landman. In 1981, he joined forces with his father John and brother Jack with Wold Oil Properties. The brothers bought the company from John in 1993 and have managed it since. Peter and his wife Marla have three children and four granddaughters."
