The Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes in collaboration with AARP Montana and other community partners, will join forces to host the annual Women 4 Wellness health fair on Thursday, May 23, at 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. at the Joe McDonald Event Center on the Salish Kootenai College campus.
The 2019 July 4th Firecracker Fun Run is a 1 mile race from the St Joseph Medical Center down the parade route ending on 3rd Ave. Entry fee is 1 canned good or dry good per person. Donations accepted as well. Run starts at 11:45 AM. Registration starts at 11 AM at St Joseph Medical Center
I hope you have this marked on your calendar to stop by to enjoy our fourth annual summer event. On the Nature Trail there will be over 15 vendors selling their handcrafted items and artwork. Plus we have Don Safford from Hot Springs here to demonstrate flintknapping and a newcomer this year, Barnes, who will demonstrate buckskin tanning. Our very own Jan Kauffman will be in the Jocko Cabin demonstrating how she does her beautiful pine needle basket weaving.
The tasty treats of “Home on the Range Pies and Baked Goods” will be set up across from the museum entry.
AND it is a FREE day to tour the museum. If you missed Sheron Green’s book reading and signing last Saturday, you’re in luck … she’ll be in the gift shop by the fireplace to visit with you and sign her book on Saturday.
Bring your friends, bring your family … come spend a few leisurely hours enjoying summer in the Mission Valley. If you’re parched, be sure to stop by the Great Gray Gift Shop next door for a cool coffee drink or one of their delicious huckleberry shakes (I can personally vouch for the deliciousness) or drop by Ninepipes Lodge for a tall, cool beverage of your choice. And since it’s supposed to be a warm day, perhaps get a bite to each so you won’t have to cook when you get home!
The half marathon (13.1 miles) starts promptly at 7:00 a.m., and the 1, 4 and 7 mile fun runs start promptly at 8:00 a.m. All races will start on Main Street in front of Gambles on July 20th.
