Montana Arts Council Brainstorming
Over the years Montana Arts Council (MAC), the state arts agency which provides support in numerous ways including grants, has been extremely helpful to the Tobacco Valley. Their staff is great at helping local organizations such as the Sunburst Community Service Foundation and the Creative Arts Center grow. The Montana Arts Council has also helped many local artists. So it is thrilling to hear that MAC staff are hitting the road this spring to visit Montana towns and Eureka is on the list. Arni Fishbaugh (Executive Director), Kristin Han Burgoyne (Grants Director), Cinda Holt (Business Development Specialist) and Sheri Jarvis (Montana Artrepreneur Program Director) will be in the Tobacco Valley April 12-13 to meet with community members, listen to ideas, explain all MAC has to offer and see how creative people in this valley truly are.
Kootenai Valley Rangers Baseball Fundraiser
The Kootenai Valley Rangers baseball team has been a force for the past 20 years in the Tobacco Valley. They can start early with Little League, but there are no high school baseball teams in Montana. The KV Rangers gives our boys, ages 15-18, an opportunity to play ball!
Their annual fundraiser is at Rexford's Frontier Bar on Sat. March 19. Dinner starts around 5:00, auction begins at 6:00, and the festivities continue into the night.
Friends of the NRA Banquet
The Tobacco Valley Friends of the NRA will have their annual fundraising banquet on March 12 at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds starting at 5:30pm. Tickets are $30/person which includes a full prime rib dinner catered by the Point of Rocks. Only three hundred tickets are available for this event and they go quickly. Tammy Owen reports they always sell out for this annual banquet so people should buy tickets soon.
The Hideout Buffalo Guest Ranch
Buffalo are majestic creatures with their larger than life presence and the thundering sound when running across open plains. It isn't a surprise that Christine and Jim Gibson became enchanted with the idea of starting a buffalo ranch in Montana when they moved here in 2002. And what better place than on a 300-acre spread in the Tobacco Valley?
