Thanksgiving Dinner

A Reason to Give Thanks

April 29, 2011 at 11:15 am my phone rang. Child Protect Services (CPS) was on the phone, a sweet voice says to me, we have a baby boy, he is 4 months old and just arrived via law enforcement. She tells me he was found in a known drug house, no one there knew where his parents were or much about him. He has an obvious eye infection and is “super adorable”. She asks if we can pick him up at the CPS office. We drop everything and excitedly head home to grab a car seat and some clothes. We had been licensed foster parents for less than 24 hours. You see our license arrived the night before. After many hours of training, home inspections, background checks and several months of waiting for it all to come together we finally were realizing a dream, to be foster parents. To help. To rescue. To love. We had somewhat Pollyanna views that we would “save” a child, this child.

Community Soup Night

Five years ago Claudia Evans and Pattiann Bennett decided there were individuals in Eureka who could use a hot meal at least one night a week. They began the Community Soup Night which is open to everyone from kids to oldsters. The dinner is served from 4:00 - 7:00pm every Tuesday. Each week a group or organization or church or business signs up to prepare the food, serve it and clean up.

First Snowfall, Eureka Montana

Eureka's First Snowfall of 2014!

Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow!

The first diamonds of snow covered the ground last night after an amazing Montana fall. The wood has been gathered and tucked in the shed, the garden harvested and laying quietly beneath a blanket of straw and now it’s time to get outdoors to enjoy what winter brings. Whether it’s snowmobiling, cross country skiing, ice climbing, sledding or star gazing, there’s always a reason to get out and enjoy the fourth season of the year. Below are a few links of places to go, things to do and where to get the gear to make your event more enjoyable…so, button up and get out into the winter wonderland!
