Tobacco Valley Board of History

Understanding the Tobacco Valley Board of History

The Tobacco Valley Board of History is a nonprofit that raises funds to cover the costs – and there are many – for maintaining the Historical Village in Eureka. The volunteers make sure the buildings are in good repair with sound roofs and are all nicely painted. They arrange for lawn maintenance each summer so the grounds look beautiful for events such as the Quilt Show and Shakespeare in the Park. They keep the exhibits organized and the archives up to date. Members of the board and the other volunteers raise the funds to do all of this through memberships, quilting, the annual Dinner on the Lake, rummage sales and such. This week though there is a new fundraiser and an easy way for you to help support the Village. HA) Brewery and Jax Pizza are hosting a Community Pint Night on Tuesday, September 22. If you come out to the brewery on Grave Creek, $1 from every beverage and $2 from every large pizza sold that evening will go towards the Historical Village. And to make it even sweeter, Connie Deebel & Friends will be providing awesome music there. So a delightful evening and a great cause. Put it on your calendar and stop by. And remember to thank HA) and Jax for helping with this community support.

About the Author: Rita Collins. I am a believer in the power of community and for now I call the Tobacco Valley home. I have lived in nine states and three counties and this community here amazes me - how people reach out to neighbors and even travelers. I've never lived in a place that demonstrates people caring for each other so well. And I've never lived in a place that has such a high percentage of talented musicians and artists. I work with the the Sunburst Community Service Foundation, a nonprofit that began in Eureka twenty years ago and now serves numerous communities in western Montana. And I just started a new business, St. Rita's Amazing Traveling Bookstore and Textual Apothecary. I never could have imagined life being this exciting in my sixth decade.
