“To Do” List

1. Attend the Christmas Stroll downtown tomorrow!

2. Take a look at AJ Tooley’s video entry and help him win $25K!

3. Plan your holiday TV viewing – classic TV shows and movies, plus some more modern fare.

4. Sign up to be a volunteer judge at the high school debate tourney!

5. Help the Landon family by attending a spaghetti dinner and silent auction tomorrow! “Boo” Landon and his three kids lost everything in a fire a few weeks ago, so the benefit at the Sand Coulee Fire Hall is designed to help the family get back on their feet.

Snow Falling

I know that there are a few former residents of Great Falls who check in periodically, so this little video might cheer them up a bit – especially if they are trapped in non-snow places such as Miami, Phoenix, or San Antonio. I was sitting in my car in the parking lot of the country club on Tuesday, transfixed by the falling snow, listening to music that perfectly captures the pre-Christmas atmosphere.

Debate Volunteers Needed!

Originally posted over at Electric City Weblog:

CMR is hosting the Electric City Invitational speech and debate tournament December 7-8, 2007 and is in real need of volunteers to judge the tournament. You don’t need any special skills or experience except the willingness to listen to student speeches or debates and choose the ones you feel do the best job. We need 93 judges per round and are having some difficulty filling that need. The rounds of competition are Friday December 7th at 4:00, 6:00, and 8:00 PM, and Saturday December 8th at 8:00, 10:00 AM, 12:00 noon, 1:30 and 3:00 P.M.for speech and debate events. The rounds are approximately an hour and a half, and we will have hot coffee, soda, and snacks for all of the volunteers. Please call Teresa Lang-Court at 231-9379 or email Tom Cubbage (tom_cubbage@gfps.k12.mt.us) with the time and day you can help.

I’ve judged a few debate tourneys, and it is really a great experience – these are smart kids, and it’s invigorating to see them put their wits and public speaking skills on display.
