Council members approved a request from the Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce to close streets for the June 4 Whoop-Up parade.
The event is the 71st annual Whoop-Up Trail Days Celebration and Rhubarb Festival. Streets will be closed for both the children’s and general parade.
The general parade comes up (north) Main St. to Second Ave. S. and goes up to the PMC to disband.
In a related matter the council also approved a request from the Lions Club for use of a garbage truck at the rodeo grounds. PWD Rich Anderson noted, “The city has been doing that for years.”
The council also approved a request from the Rhubarb Festival committee to pay half the cost of a portable toilet. That cost will be about $40.

The summer season is here and the first big tournament for the Pondera Golf Club is slated for June 11.
This year the Todd Johnson Memorial has been moved up from August to the June 11 date.
Golfers will blast off the tee boxes at the PGC in the annual Todd Johnson Memorial tourney beginning at 9 a.m.
The two-person scramble event will have teams playing 27 holes. It is limited to 45 teams.
Over the years this tournament has become a golfer’s favorite and almost a reunion, if you will, as it draws former graduates from outside the area to come back and tee it up one more time for the “TJ” as it has become to be known.
The entry fee is still only $35 per player.
For this, you get to play 27 holes of golf and chomp down on a pretty good dinner after. There is also a deuce pot to enter and a bunch of cool prizes to be given away.

A new spa experience is opening its doors in Conrad. The Nu Body Retreat is run by licensed massage therapist Jennifer Marsicano and licensed esthetician Andrea Colesworthy. Both attended the Salon Academy in Great Falls and are excited to offer many services.
Marisicano will offer reflexology, chronic pain relief, as well as stone, aroma, Swedish, sports and prenatal massage. Colesworthy will offer a variety of facials, chemical peels, face and body waxing, brow and eyelash tinting and hopes to soon offer body treatments. This spa will use Pevonia products exclusively.
With two tanning beds and an infrared on the way, this spa will help you to relax, revive and retreat. These ladies are also searching for a hair and nail technician to expand their services.
