Summer warmth seems far away

RONAN  — Brrr- It’s cold out there. Wouldn’t it be nice to have some of last summer’s heat? Now that the holidays are over, we can all get back to our regular schedules. Our yearly dues are now due and they are $10 per person. Don’t forget our chicken dinner will be this Thursday, Jan. 10, at 5:30 p.m. Come on in, visit with your friends, and then join us for a great meal for only $5 per person. You don’t have to be a senior to eat here. All are welcome. That is also the day for the veterans’ representative to be here, but we are not sure if she will be in or not. If you need to talk to her give us a call at (406) 676-2371, after...

Seed catalog inspires until spring

DIXON — A very happy 2013 to us all. Doesn’t it appear that New Year’s comes around more often these years? It seems like a long stretch until spring. Some of us received a Gurneys seed catalog before Christmas, so we have some inspirational reading. Congratulations to Joyce and Don Sier...


Imagine: 2013 just around the corner

RONAN — Welcome to December. Just think, in less than a month we will be into 2013. I am sure that you are, with the rest of us, wondering where the year has gone. Thanks to all of our volunteers. We couldn’t get everything done around here with out your help. We have hired a new cook to he...
