For Your Information


July 4th is a special day for many reasons, not the least of which is Karen and Kerry Sacry’s wedding anniversary and Dr. Steve Sacry’s birthday. It has become an annual event to have the Sacry clan get together on that day to celebrate family. This year was no different. Seventy-plus family and friends gathered at the ranch near Cardwell for several days of fun. They floated the Madison twice!, enjoyed the Bozeman Hot Springs and had a talent show. (If you know anything about the Sacrys, you know they can entertain.) Brand Sacry was in charge of the pig roast. Equipment didn’t cooperate, so he dug the pit by hand and made sure the pork was ready on time. Kevin Sacry used his computer and programed the fireworks display. Folks in the surrounding area could see them, too. Six families made the trip from Missouri, along with family from Washington and then, of course, Whitehall, Cardwell and the surrounding areas. Nancy said they just lots of fun!

Larry and Carrol Young from Pony hosted Julian and Sue Norville and Donna and Harry Hixson for an evening of talking over high school memories. Donna, Carrol and Sue went to school together in Three Forks.

Maddy Carmody from Seattle, visited her Dad, Jim, and Grandma Janice for several days. Before returning to Seattle, she spent time in Billings with family and friends.

GREAT NEWS! The Friday, 3:00pm History Tour, on July 28, 2017 is sold out!! There are tickets available for the 5pm Friday tour and the Saturday tours at 1pm, 3pm and 5pm. You can purchase the tickets at the Museum or at the Chamber Office on North Whitehall next to the Rodeway Inn. The tour costs $5.00 to cover the transportation. The tours begin and end at the Museum. It’s a great way to enjoy Frontier Days!

Also, check in with the Chamber regarding the Amazing Race as part of the Frontier Day celebration. Sounds like loads of fun!

During the Pyfer-Inabnit family reunion held near Coeur d’Alene, Idaho, a memorial service was held for Mary Leila Jackson Martin. A friend of the Martins had prepared a video of her life and with the help of modern technology, we were able to enjoy the presentation out of doors during the evening. The Martins own the property where the Reunion has been held for the past numerous years. The Coeur d’Alene River runs through it making it perfect for fishing, kayaking, floating and general playing in the water. It has been developed into a wonderful facility for RV’s, motorhomes and tents. This year, the 59th year of the reunion, more people attended and new friends added to the activities. Genealogy research is part of the time together and of course, meals, prepared on site, always bring folks together. I think that Mary Lee would say with Job, “I know that my Redeemer lives and He shall stand on the earth, and after my skin is destroyed, this I know, that in my flesh I shall see God, Whom I shall see for myself, and my eyes shall behold, and not another. How my heart yearns within me!” Job 25 -27.
