Stephanie’s President Message – May 2017

Stephanie BeartoothsHello Spring;

We are not having typical spring weather.  We could use some sunshine but I guess the rain is better than snow and it is nice to see things blooming and turning green.

Our trip to the Brinton Museum in Big Horn, WY was a beautiful but windy drive.  Lunch was great at the Pony and the museum was very unique inside and out.  Thanks to those that attended.

This month is our trip to Chico.  You are welcome to join us for the drive to Gardiner for lunch.  We will be leaving from the Holiday Station on Gable Rd at 9:30 am.  We will meet the Bozeman people at Albertson’s in Livingston then drive the East River Road to Gardiner for lunch at the Iron Horse Bar & Grill.  For those spending the night, you will be on your own until dinner in the Wine Cellar at 6:30.  Let’s hope it is a little warmer this year.

We cannot make the trip to the Tippet Rise Art Center in June as they do not open until June 30th.  Instead, we will take the drive from Billings, Columbus, Roscoe, lunch in Red Lodge at the Brewery then onto Charles Ringer Museum in Joliet.  We will depart from the Holiday station at 10:00 AM.

If you are interested in our trip to Jackson Hole on September 23rd I have a block of 8 rooms at the Quality 49’er Inn & Suites.   The rate is $219 + tax.  Please call 800-451-2980 to make reservations.  Mention Confirmation #45K1OM.  The rooms are under my name.

For those of you that are attending Parade in Spokane I would like for all of us to meet for lunch on Monday after Concourse.  Due to everyone’s schedules this might be the best time for all of us to meet.

We will be returning to Grains of Montana for breakfast.  Bernie’s was good food, but it was just way to noisy.

Thank you to Lee Kennedy, Henry Mellgren, Greg Kohn and Dennis Zeiler for renewing your membership.  I hope to see you at one of our events.
