Grant-Kohrs Ranch National Historic Site in Deer Lodge will be celebrating Pumpkin Sunday, October 16, 2011.
The event runs from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. and offers activities that include a tractor-drawn hayride, hay maze, popping popcorn over the bonfire, pressing apples into cider, and a variety of craft activities from wheat weaving to pumpkin painting and making soup.
There will also be carnival games, guided tours of the ranch house and free pumpkins while they last.
Admission is free, but please bring a canned food item for the Powell County Food Pantry (boxes will be located through out the ranch).
For more information, call (406) 846-2070 or visit www.nps.gov/grko.
The Powell County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to sponsor this popular event.
As we approach the hunting season, and winter sports activities will soon be drawing us towards the mountains, please remember the volunteers who selflessly give of their time and resources to help those in need, any time of day or night, in all weather conditions.
Powell County Search and Rescue (an all volunteer not-for-profit organization) is in dire need of equipment in order to assist us in our searches and rescues. We need help from the community in order to raise funds to purchase the equipment. Donations should be sent to the following address:
