News for the Week

From Donna:

Last night, Alan and I attended a Montana Country Christmas in Stevensville. Carolers marched down Main Street singing familiar tunes, the crowd gasped when the city’s Christmas lights were turned on and everyone cheered when Santa arrived in a decorated carriage pulled by two beautiful draft horses. Alan and I warmed up by one of the fire bins while enjoying a cup of  hot chocolate. Then we browsed the stores before enjoying dinner at Stevi Cafe. Now we’re on the lookout for more holiday events to experience. What about you? Don’t forget to check out the holiday events in your city or town. It’s like taking a vacation in your own backyard.
