Ben & Sarah Quilling - "Stillwater"

“From the hills of Eureka comes the return of Out of the Studio. Sarah has been an inspiration to many as a friend, musician, teacher, mother and for all the many roles she's filled in people's lives. Hope you enjoy!" -

The Keepers of our Heritage

The Keepers of our Heritage

Article Contribution by: Encore.org

“These women are preserving the history of the valley – in the museum they maintain, in the stories they tell and in the quilts they create.”

For years I worked in education, part of that time overseas, and at the age of 60, I returned to Montana. I found a part-time job working for a nonprofit, but I was interested in becoming more involved with the community, especially with a group of older women whom I thought of as the heritage keepers for this rural valley.

A Submission

A Submission

As we slip into Spring, many of us might have left our New Year's resolutions behind. Perhaps you are not going to the gym as often as you wanted or neglecting those healthy meals you promised yourself you would eat regularly. But April is the perfect month to think about volunteering in the community if that was one of your resolutions - or even if it wasn't. There are a lot of great volunteer opportunities in the Tobacco Valley this month so consider picking up the phone or stopping by to offer your services.

A Conversation with Slim and June Woffenden

A Conversation with Slim and June Woffenden

This interview first appeared in the Spring 2011 issue. My motivation for visiting with the Woffendens was to query June about her father, Frank Baney. On my first visit we pretty much stuck to that topic, but then I decided that it would be well worthwhile to visit again and expand on what had been alluded to or passed over the first time. June is one of two children who Frank Baney had with Victoria Dunston, his second wife. He married her in 1924 after the death of his first wife Eva Mills two years earlier. June was born in 1928.
