Crunchy goodness at Homecoming

20_stan-pigstyPIG STY HAS SPECIAL GUEST FROM NY  — Dr. Stanley Rudnicki and his wife Edna recently came to town to visit their daughter Amy Sullivan and family. While in Montana, they love to travel around the state, hike in the Glacier, head to Choteau for ice cream and stop to enjoy breakfast at the Home Café.  During their stay this summer, Stanley helped Sullivan hunt for treasures for her store, The Pig Sty, one treasure being an awesome old cash register. He also enjoys a visit with  Thales at Hayford Harness to purchase leather goods. Stanley and his wife, who live in Rhinebeck, N.Y., is a regular subscriber to the Independent-Observer. He is an oral surgeon in Poughkeepsie, N.Y. and makes sure that the I-O gets placed in his waiting room so his patients can read the latest news from Conrad and the Big Sky State of Montana.
