Libby Food Box
Pause for Posterity
As the federally funded food box distributions in Libby wrapped up this past Thursday, volunteers who had showed up to distribute boxes each week through every type of weather and
unexpected glitch in
delivery time celebrated
the honor of working with one another to serve their community.
Sons of Norway
Serve-Up Final School
Lunch at KVCS
On Friday, May 28,
as part of the “Adopt a School” program of the Sons of Norway, the local chapter purchased and provided an entire picnic meal for all students at the Kootenai Valley Christian School in Libby.
In years past, Norhaven had provided chips on the final day of school. But this year, they felt a little something extra was in order.

In all there were 57 men and 6 women who played in the two day tournament in less than ideal conditions to raise monies for the Libby Middle and High School Golf programs.
In all, $4,500 was raised to support youth programming in the 2021-22 school year.
The women’s winner for the weekend was Bobbie Lacklen who ended with a +32.

Volunteers with American
Legion fatality marker
restoration at work on Hwy 2
Volunteers were spotted along Hwy 2 West in Libby on Sunday evening, May 30, working to repaint one of the highway fatality markers in traditional preparation for Memorial Day.
The Montana American Legion White Cross Highway Fatality Marker Program in 1953. The unique idea of marking fatal traffic accident sites with a white cross was the brainchild of Floyd Eaheart, a member of Hellgate Post #27 in Missoula after 6 lives were lost in that area over the 1952 Labor Day Holiday. The safety program started out as a county and later district project for the Missoula American Legion Post. However, the idea was so good that it was soon adopted as a statewide program.
