Visit NW Montana Goes to the Governor's Conference

Visit NW Montana Goes to the Governor's Conference

The Tobacco Valley was very well represented at the recent Montana Governor's Conference on Tourism. This annual event took place at the Kalispell Hilton Garden Inn in Kalispell from April 10 to 12 and was attended by many of our local businesses. VisitNWMontana and the Eureka Chamber of Commerce shared a spectacular booth, at which we gave away visors from Indian Springs Ranch and Golf Course, dog treats from Mountain Vista Veterinary Services, key rings from Cheeto's Garage and so much more. Numerous valley businesses — such as the Wilderness Club, Heaven's Peak, and Lancaster & Company — sent items along that we gave away to conference participants or added to a raffled basket of goodies.

The crocuses are barely out but we are already thinking seriously of summer, and before you know it, the Eureka Farmers Market will be in full swing. The market offers a great selection of fresh vegetables, baked goods, homemade jams and locally made crafts.

Spring Golf in NW Montana

As grass in northwest Montana’s Tobacco Valley begins turning green, some of us begin to think of golf, and this area is very fortunate to have a wide range of wonderful golf courses to choose from. For example,The Wilderness Club on Sophie Lake Road in Eureka was ranked by Golfweek in 2012 as having the #1 golf course in the state of Montana. Designed by Sir Nick Faldo, this classic 18-hole course is shaped by a beautiful lake as well as stands of mature trees. Golfers may enjoy spectacular views of the mountains around every bend.

Montana Arts Council Brainstorming

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.
