Yeah, the Helena Newsletter came out and gives all the details about what is happening in Helena. You should get yours in the mail today (did you know people have to hand label each one of those). I added all the dates to the Helena Event Calendar here. Fun events like the charity concert for Larry Childers: Jammin in the Junction, HIS Fall Festival and Liz Cochran Day in Helena.
If you are a songwriter then LaReunion will be letting you share your tunes every Wednesday night.
Btw if you like the design, they will be selling t-shirts with the Jammin at the Junction logo and the Smoke & Gun poker run at the event as well at BBQ and brewing and fermentation of starches from cereal grains.

Odds and Ends around the city
A few things that I heard around the city and forgot to put in the blog:
1. Crowe Corner in Helena was not named for the murder of crows in the area (by murder I mean a grouping not an act of violence) but the family which owns the property. They still own it. I hear that Publix just leases the location.
2. The wholeseller SamLily is named for the owner's dogs, Sam and Lily.
3. Dippin Dots inquired about the vacant shop in Crowe's Croner. I dont know if they are considering opening a business but they asked about it.
Finally I saw this cool Christmas ornament (below) at the Monkey Basket in Old Town that Joe Habshey had made. I thought it was pretty cool.

btw the way I finished Dan Brown's The Last Symbol. It was a good story but I felt it was trying to convert me to a version of new age gnosticism during certain parts of the book. I'll take my hidden gnomes over secret gnosticism any day.
