For Your Information
July 26, 2017
This little tidbit is for Patti Hanley and Sally Kreis, both retired teachers from Cardwell School. They LOVE the MSU Bobcats. Five former Bobcats, Deonte, Matt, Tanner, Joe and Caleb and Rick - do those names sound familiar?- are serving the Lord in Bozeman and Great Falls. Four of them were part of the Conference that I attended in Bozeman at Grace Bible Church. When they were Bobcats, the team beat the Griz in Missoula! I Timothy 4:12 is a great testimony of their lives. “Let no man despise your youth, but an example to the believers in word, in conduct, in love, in spirit, in faith and in purity.”
The Jon Goffs have purchased the Melvin Hanson house and 23 acres from Dave Adamson and are history seekers. They have learned a lot about the area in the short time that they have been residents here. Any one out there that has stories or information about the ranch should contact the Goffs. They would love to visit with you.
Joyce Held wasn’t feeling well this week, so Mary Gustin filled in for her and sent the Pinochle Club information. Carol Tichenor hosted the afternoon. Margaret Irish place High; Kathy Clark, Second; Lucile Buchanan, Low; and Gladys Ballard won Pinochle. Erv Hedegaard filled in as a guest and Mary will hostess next time.
There are still tickets available for the History Tour to Renova, Piedmont, Pleasant Valley and the Fish Creek Cemetery. Tickets are available at the Chamber office or at the Museum. Tickets cost $5.00 to defray the cost of the transportation. Arlene Weber will be you guide - you won’t be disappointed. Check the Ledger and posters around town to find the details regarding the Amazing Race. It’s a timed and accurate competition, but looks like a lot of fun!
REMEMBER THE GABFEST AT THE MUSEUM FOLLOWING THE PARADE. It’s a great opportunity to ‘meet and greet’ friends and classmates. The Gabfest began because Nick Hill thought that Whitehall’s Alumni needed a definite place to see one another. Thanks to Nick, who recently passed away, this annual event is something folks look forward to each year. Cold drinks and cookies will be available.
Another important announcement: Descendants of Granny Yates are holding their annual picnic on August 6th at the Pass Creek Community Center, North of Belgrade. Genealogy is big on the calendar of events. Lunch will be served at 1pm.
With one son and his family in Virginia, another in Arizona, another in Billings and the fourth working through cancer treatments in Missoula - where that family lives, it’s quite an occasion when they all get together.
For John and Sue Joy, the visits couldn’t be more welcome. John’s 75th birthday was celebrated a little early with four sons and daughters-in-law, along with 10 of their 12 grandkids. The Erik Joys also blessed Marg Duffey, Patty Joy’s Mom. Patty’s sisters from Spokane joined them as well. Mark and April Joy with two of the kids, Kirk and Bethany Joy with their three kids, Pete and Diane Joy with three of their kids, and Erik and Patty with their two livened up the days.
