This year's trip to Montana was a multi-activity one. Most importantly,
it was our first trip to bypass
Great Falls as Sandee's Mother had just sold her home and moved into a retirement community in Helena.
On the way to Flathead we had a Park Ridge reunion south of Missoula in
the Bitterroot Valley. Some
of Sandee's Great Falls HS class threw a Flathead Lake "We are 60!" weekend party. We were hosted
in two great homes and partied with her buddies of long ago.
We joined our good Flathead/California friends for an 89th birthday celebration
and the dogs
became great water pals.
Sandee enjoyed an informal 3-day Pi Phi reunion in Bozeman where 21 ladies
occupied the Pi Phi house
while eating out, reacquainting and laughing much.
The Y2K trip to Montana had many elements. We visited family in Helena,
The family gathered there around a new trophy. Again, we were fortunate to visit friends in Bigfork.
On the way home we had yet another family gathering in Wyoming.
