Jim and Andi Monroe, owners of The Front Porch restaurant in Eureka, have been selected to represent Montana at the Capitol Christmas Tree lighting in Washington, D.C. the 1st week of December! The restaurant was selected to make food for the reception following the lighting of the tree. WOW! Our community is asked to help them with the cost of airfare, food, and lodging for this trip.

Today’s Daily Inter Lake gives accolades to our community’s generosity. “Maybe most impressive has been the flood of support coming out of Lincoln County. Students at Eureka’s Lincoln County High School directed that donations at the annual Rumble in the Jungle school fundraiser go to fire relief. Residents stepped up in droves last weekend, donating an amazing $44,000 in just four hours.” Pat yourselves on the back, Eureka!
Shawn Pearson, Incident Commander, Northern Rockies, Type 2, Team 2, has acknowledged the management expertise of Eureka Chamber Board Member Tracy McIntyre during this past summer’s wildfires. “In recognition of your professionalism, customer service and work ethic as the City of Eureka Liaison during the Gibralter Ridge and Caribou Fires,” says the Caribou-Gibralter Ridge Certificate of Appreciation. “We appreciate your support to our Northern Rockies Incident Management Team’s efforts.”
The Chamber’s Executive Director, Naomi Wheat, has won a scholarship to fund her participation in the October 9-10 MACE (Montana Association of Chamber Executives) Conference 2017 in Helena, where she will participate in brainstorming activities to bring even more good ideas to our area.
