Saturday was a super day to throw a party and that’s just what the Chamber of Commerce did with their annual Christmas Stroll.
Last year it was bitter cold with howling winds and a number of events had to go by the wayside when, if you recall, the temperature rolled off the table and went to 19 degrees below zero, and with howling winds and snow, some folks even got stuck in town.
That was then. This year it was just cold and outdoor events and attractions like the horse drawn wagon rides and the Cardboard parade went on.
Vendors were in three different locations, Joe’s Family Steakhouse, The Lobby and Village Shopping Center with a variety of items for Christmas shoppers to view.
Veterans can receive healthcare from Department of Veterans Affairs professionals as a new VA-staffed clinic opens in Cut Bank Dec. 10.
A dedication ceremony for the community based outpatient clinic begins at 9 a.m. at the HC Davis Elementary School gymnasium. Margaret Plain Eagle and Elsie Crowshoe, spiritual elders of the Blackfeet, will perform a Native American blessing for the ceremony. An open house will follow at the clinic, located at #8 Second Ave. South East.
The clinic was established in 2008 with services provided by and contracted with Glacier Community Health Clinic and is one of 15 VA healthcare sites in Montana.
