Annual River Rally & Safety Fair set for April 29
Once again this spring Whitehall will play host to the Jefferson River Rally and Community Transition Advisory Committee/Golden Sunlight Mine Health and Safety Fair. This year’s Rally and Fair event is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on April 29 at the Whitehall Community Center.
The dual event offers something fun and educational for people of all ages.
The Jefferson River Watershed Council will be sharing some excellent interactive displays that are great for youngsters and adults alike.
The very popular live fish display will be back but is going to have some stiff competition as Jill Allen and Stephanie Blasenak of the Jefferson County Weed District break in their new interactive noxious plant trailer.
Of course, the Lewis and Clark Caverns bat display is one the kids love while the adults can take a look at what’s going on in streambeds. Confluence Consulting representatives will be on hand to explain what they have found so far in their assessment of Pipestone Creek and the Jefferson Slough.
New this year the JRWC will be presenting information on the Conifer Encroachment Program, which affects Montana grazing lands. The Bureau of Mines and Geology will be available to provide updates on the Upper Jefferson River Watershed study.
The JRWC will once again host a couple of raffles to raise needed funds. They will be selling tickets for a Sweetgrass fly rod and reel with a $1,200 value. The tickets are $10 each and are available through JRWC members. The other raffle again this year is for the Golden Sunlight Mine gold coin. These tickets are also $10 each or three for $25. These tickets will be available from local outlets as well as board members. Both drawings will be held during the Bucks, Broncs and Barrels event at Frontier Days.
The Community Transition Advisory Committee and Golden Sunlight Mine will be hosting their annual Health and Safety Fair in conjunction with the River Rally. The event, set up at the Whitehall Community Center, will play host to a wide variety of health vendors with information on free and discounted health screenings, senior living issues, free quit spit and quit smoking kits, and lots of great information.
Local emergency responders will be in attendance with some great interactive safety models. Again this year, some of our local emergency vehicles will be on hand for the public to check out. Northwestern Energy will also be back this year with its Electrical Safety Model.
