The weather hasn't been too harsh as of late, but most of us around Western Montana are looking for a fun reason to leave the house and we just found one. The Winter Carnival and Family Fun Night in Frenchtown! It's scheduled for Thursday, February 8th from 5pm-7:30pm at the Frenchtown High School.

It's going to be a fun night with games, raffles, auction items and lots of food. This will also be a fundraiser for Rod & Bette Paskey, as Bette is battling brain cancer and faces many weeks of radiation and chemotherapy.

If you would like to volunteer or donate an item please contact Lori Quinn at 396-2030, Dennis Normand 626-4012, or Carol Flint 370-9886.

There has also been an account set up at Trail West Bank for anyone who wants to make monetary donations.
