Coming up

Last winter we did a fundraiser for the Historical Village. Midwinter seemed a great time to offer people a chance to get out on a gray, cold afternoon to enjoy some live music, visit with neighbors and support our local museum.  The event was a wonderful success and afterwards many people asked if we were going to do it again.  And we are!!

On Saturday March 2 beginning at 4:00pm, we hope to see you at the Trego Civic Center to hear Mark Ross, musician and historian.  Mark is someone who knowmark_rosss Montana well. He lived in Butte, Montana for twelve years and also spent eleven years in Missoula, five of them doing a live Saturday night show for Montana Public Radio. From 1997 – 2000 he was the Artistic Director and Producer of the Butte FolkFest.  Needless to say, Mark Ross is also a consummate musician playing guitar, banjo, harmonica and a dozen other instruments.  He lives in Oregon now but jumped at the chance to come back up to Montana (even in winter) for this fundraising event.

Following Mark’s show, there will be a potluck so bring your favorite dish-to-pass.  We will have everything else needed at the Trego Civic Center.  After dinner, there will be a jam with Mark and any local musicians who happen to bring along an instrument.

All proceeds from this home-grown event support the Historical Village. Can’t think of a better way to spend a Saturday afternoon this time of year. So put it on your calendar and invite along some friends.  Admission is $12 at the door. We will also have raffle tickets and our handmade quilts available for sale.

I mostly live in Eureka, Montana and write two blogs. One is for the Tobacco Valley Board of History, a group composed of the most remarkable older women who quilt weekly to raise funds to maintain the Historical Village. I had to capture their stories with words and photos. And when I began a traveling bookstore as a small business, well, it only made sense to write about that too.
