For Your Information


Welcome Home, Catherine! The Ledger will be filled with your journalistic writings, I’m sure.

It looks like the Madison County precinct that usually is at the Cardwell School gym, will be moved to the Cardwell Pavilion for the May 25th election. The position to replace Ryan Zinke in the House of Representatives in Washington has three candidates to choose from. The polls will be open from noon until 8pm as usual. The Cardwell Pavilion is just east of the Cardwell Store where the soccer fields are.

Winners at the Whitehall Pinochle Club include. Erv Hedegaard with High; Marion Poff, Second; Kathy and Michael Clark tied for Low and Mary Gustin won Pinochle. Marion was hostess and Erv, along with Evie Ellis, and Norman Ridder, were guests. Next hostess will be Florence Weyer.

As was mentioned last week, the South Boulder Cemetery will be groomed for Memorial Day and the graves need items removed before the work starts. May 15th is the deadline. If the items don’t hinder the mower, they may stay. Any thing left will possibly be discarded. Please help the caretaker make the cemetery beautiful.

It looks like the 2017 season for the Jefferson Valley Museum will be off to a good start. Two groups have scheduled tours before the season officially begins. One group are local Scouts - Cubs and Girls. Later, a group of 5th graders from Sheridan will be taking advantage of the history available. There is much cleaning that needs to be done. So, if you would like to help preserve the history and artifacts housed in the big red barn on South Division, give Janice Carmody a call. Her number is 287-3389. Martha Hanson and Dannette Simon already have polished a couple of old kerosene lamps. It’s like the ugly duckling turning into a beautiful swan. The first State Highway Map of Montana has been framed by Arlene Weber and Roger Beyer and will hang for better inspection. Copies of this very unique map have been made and will be for sale. The opening date of the Museum is May 27, 2017.

The Young Adults from the Cardwell Church are a busy bunch. Their schedule is full, but they have worked for numerous folks in the area. Trimming trees, cleaning yards, chopping and stacking wood, building some fence - and the list goes on. It is a project to help fund several of the youth that will be attending Summit in Colorado and Christian Youth in Action in Bozeman. It is a double blessing. The kids (and adults) spend time with those they are helping and the interaction builds healthy relationships. “Let no one despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith, in purity.” I Timothy 4:12.
