This time of year reminds me of the Diamonds and their 1958 "blast from the past", "The Stroll"...We're strolling and styling here in the Golden Triangle. The Conrad Christmas Stroll is coming up this Wednesday and this week is a very special time for Conrad. The unveiling of the Christmas Trees and wreaths will be held this Thursday night at the Conrad Moose Lodge from 6 until 7 with a no host hamburger and fries dinner. Be sure and say "hello, hello" to Mitch while you're there. Up North, the Sunburst Stroll will held at the Northern Telephone garage from 5 until 8. I don't know if there will be any "garage" bands but there's going to be food, hay rides, gifts, and caroling plus Mr. AND Mrs. Santa Claus will on hand. There have been unconfirmed reports that last year's Mr. Santa Claus looked very similar to Herb Karst! We'll see what this year brings. Choteau's Christmas Stroll will be this Saturday and Jim Anderson hasn't been this excited since they struck oil on the Rocky Mountain Front! By the way, Jim has the best lattes and coffee in town at Grizzly Sports, a real "Montana" store. It's always very special living here in the Golden Triangle and the festivities and events this week makes it even more so.
