ARLEE — The Arlee Community Development Center put on a Halloween event on Friday, Oct. 27, with food, music and art. 

CDC Executive Director Marie Hirsch she shared updates about ongoing CDC projects, including the community garden.

Garden For Life efforts span from Elmo to Arlee with six gardens producing 15,000 pounds of produce. Hirsch said the produce was equal to over $50,000 and helped feed people all across the Flathead Reservation. 

She added that the CDC is growing and plans to develop even more events. “We had four events last year, and we hope to finish this year out with a couple more. We also have events that bring great artists into the gallery.”

One of the CDC’s upcoming events will host artist Aspen Decker who will teach ledger art on Nov. 3 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. for youth in grades 3-8.

Hirsch said the CDC purchased the building once known as The Hangin’ Art Gallery. The building was restored by Dennis Nault who passed away in 2015.

“Dennis rebuilt the building after a fire (in 1987). He wanted it to be a place for the community to come together every day,” she said.

A memorial for Nault rests at the right of the CDC entrance.
