‘Solitary Sandpiper Secrets’ told
POLSON — “Solitary Sandpiper Secrets” by Jim Rogers will be Mission Mountain Audubon’s evening program on Thursday, Oct. 10, at 7 p.m. in the North Lake County Public Library meeting room. Everyone is welcome. Rogers will provide an overview of the Solitary sandpiper’s unusual breeding behavior and habitat requirements. He will provide an insider’s account of how they followed the clues through mosquito infested wetlands frequented by grizzly bears to chronicle Montana’s newest breeding bird.
Library closes for staff development
POLSON — The North Lake County Public Library will be closed for staff development on Thursday, Oct. 10. They will reopen on Friday, Oct. 11, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Mental health training for clergy offered
POLSON — Good Shepherd Lutheran Church, 409 Third Ave. E, will host a “Community Clergy Training Program” to support rural veterans’ mental health on Thursday, Oct. 10, from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. Lunch and coffee will be provided at no cost. Veterans in rural communities often seek help from rural clergy before anyone else. Montana is among the leading states in most vets per capita. Many returning veterans living in rural areas know little about the VA helping programs. If rural clergy can be helped with a better understanding of the health issues and readjustment difficulties returning veterans have, clergy can better assist them and their families. Please RSVP for meal count at: email@example.com or call 406-560-6371.
