The annual Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce Harvest Fest kicks into gear this weekend, beginning on Friday and going on into Saturday.
CofC secretary Molly Bock tells the I-O, “We’re looking forward to a busy weekend, and it’s time to tantalize your taste buds with samples of great food during the Chili Cook-off.
The Cook-off marks the start of the Harvest Fest and goes from 4-6 p.m. on Friday.
“No need to cook dinner, come and sample all the different varieties of chili,” says Bock.

People who come to the Pondera Shooting Sports Grand Opening will enjoy good food, have a chance to win fantastic door prizes and get the opportunity to bid on a multitude of silent and live auction items, all while supporting Pondera youth and an important part of Montana’s culture.
“It’s going to be fun,” said Wendy Judisch, who is organizing the celebration for Oct. 9.
The Pondera Shooting Sports Club (PSSC) Grand Opening is the culmination of local citizen grit and tenacity that turned an acre of farm ground into a community gathering place, a home for 4-H shooting sports, a meeting room for Hunter’s Education and private parties, as well as a safe, warm place for shooting enthusiasts to shoot 3-D archery and small bore competitions.
