Thanksgiving dinner was served to about 120 people, who did not want to be alone on Thanksgiving Day, at this 9th annual event.
The original start for this dinner was born from an idea between Ginny Mintz and Barbara Rittal in 2005. Between the elderly, veterans and people transplanted to this area a place was needed for them to have dinner on Thanksgiving Day so they wouldn’t be alone.
On Sunday, Dec. 7, Evelyn Cameron Heritage, Inc. will be hosting its first annual Evelyn Cameron Christmas Store for preschool age through 6th graders. Parents are invited to drop off their kids at the Evelyn Cameron Heritage Center on 204 Laundre Ave. while they do a little Christmas shopping of their own at local businesses around town.
Terrific Tuesdays kicks off Dec. 2
It’s time to simply “Let It Be Christmas” in Terry, with the Prairie County Chamber of Commerce sponsored Terrific Tuesdays, and other events coming this holiday season. With a nod to singer Alan Jackson’s song, the theme “Let It Be Christmas” will anchor both traditional and new events in Terry this December.
On Terrific Tuesdays, many businesses will stay open until 7 p.m. to allow customers extra time to shop. The schedule of events includes:
Publisher Dan Killoy recently named Terry native Christa VanDyke as the new editor of the Terry Tribune. VanDyke will replace Kay Hoffer who has gone to work for the Glendive Ranger Review as a staff writer.
“Christa brings a lot of experience to the job, plus her being a native is just a great fit,” said Killoy. “The Tribune is looking forward to continuing its efforts to deliver a quality product in Prairie County.”

It’s a banner year for sugar beets in Eastern Montana.
“They’re bringing in a very good crop,” said Russ Fullmer, agricul-tural manager for Sidney Sugars.
Vandals are leaving their mark at the Prairie County Shooting Range, and it has little to do with target practice.
“They’re just trashing it,” Prai-rie County Sheriff Duncan Hedg-es reported of the damage being done to the facility located about two miles north of Terry.

Prairie County Commissioner Todd Devlin’s politi-cal duties will soon be widening. Devlin, whose nearly two-decade tenure on the Prairie County Board of Com-mission began in 1995, was recently elected to serve as the second vice president of the Montana Association of Counties at MACo’s annual conference in Septem-ber. The elected appointment means that he will step into the president’s position of MACO in 2016.
