Bring your fist full of dollars to Winterfest
POLSON — The ninth annual Winterfest fundraiser will be held on Saturday, Feb. 24, beginning at 5 p.m. at the Elks on Main Street. A spaghetti dinner for $12, a painted-chair auction, a live auction, a silent auction, a 50/50 split pot and music are yours to enjoy during this fun-filled, family evening. Rob and Halladay Quist will once again provide the evening’s entertainment. These two premiere singer/songwriter performers will bring a memorable evening of award songs for the Soups On fundraiser.
In last week’s story about a wolf encounter, the story refers to the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribe’s Wolf Management Plan that states hunting and trapping wolves are not allowed on the Flathead Indian Reservation. CSKT allows tribal members to participate in limited wolf hunting and trapping quotas.
