Wes Smith, a resident of Rock Springs since 1982, has been an active and engaged member of the community for decades. With a commitment to spreading joy and cheer, Wes stepped into the role of Santa Claus for two of Downtown Rock Springs’ Santa Saturdays, going above and beyond by filling in for a scheduled Santa who had to cancel.

In his free time, Wes’ hobbies include motocross, fishing, and spending time outdoors with his family.

Downtown Rock Springs is thrilled to honor Wes Smith as the December Volunteer of the Month, recognizing his selfless contributions, positive impact, and the festive joy he brings to the community, especially during the holiday season.
