2006 Highlights

As we bid farewell to 2006, let’s take a look back at just a few of the entries at GreaterFalls.com that generated some discussion in each month:

New Year’s Eve

Does anybody have information about events going on for New Year’s Eve in Great Falls? If so, drop a note in the comments and let people know – very much appreciated! I’ll update this list as I find more events…and keep it posted at the top until Sunday night.

Tuesday, January 2

Some of you probably already heard about this: Tuesday, January 2, 2007 has been declared a national day of mourning by President Bush, in honor of former President Gerald Ford. The impact: most federal offices and agencies will NOT be open on Tuesday, including most of Malmstrom Air Force Base, and there will be no mail service.

Char’s Closet Classics

received via e-mail from Walter: Char’s Closet Classics (423 Central Avenue, 727-1880) is having a closing-its-doors-forever, going out of business sale.

Fluffy Snow!

Thank goodness the light rain and drizzle turned to snow last night…and what a wonderful surprise to wake up to about eight inches of fluffy snow this morning! It was a breeze to shovel the driveway, although some of the drifts were mid-shin level. Did you enjoy Winter’s latest display?

Cliff Rossberg, Great Falls Artist

I met Cliff a couple of years ago in his day job, and learned just a few weeks ago that he is an artist, too. He’s quite an accomplished artist, in fact, having won several contests and being featured on stamps. My favorite piece of art (so far) is, of course, these two Canada geese; you all know that I’m a sucker for those honkers. But these two pieces are pretty neat, too…
