As the dog days of summer drift off into the smoky skies, we are reminded of how blessed we are to live in such a beautiful community.
Throughout this last year, members of the Flathead Farmers 4-H club have grown in number and as community stewards. Most recently, Whitefish Community Center has become the club’s new meeting place and home.
Flathead Farmers is a small group of devoted members committed to serving the community and learning by doing. It has been helping with Whitefish Trail, organizing the Community Center Library, and will be hosting a Back to School Bash Dance this month.
Some of the club’s most challenging work was on display this last month at the NWMT Fair where all of the members volunteered time and talent to organizing exhibits in many categories. It is always a wild dusty week of sweat, grit and grins as the children get to show off all they have learned, grow in their friendships and treat themselves to candied and fried fare of all kinds.
The club would like to thank all the businesses that supported the kids through the Market Sale, with special thanks to Les Schwab, McDonald’s and Rod Leese at TrailWest Bank, bought the club’s locally raised meat products.
