Military exercises in Red Meadow area

Here’s some clarification on the current military presence at the Sapa airstrip on Red Meadow Road from Rob Davies, Hungry Horse/Glacier View District Ranger…

After a little research I have confirmed what this was all about.

Last weekend there was a military, US Special Forces training exercise… These military exercises will be occurring across four National Forests; the Flathead NF, Helena-Lewis and Clark NF, the Lolo NF, and the Kootenai NF.

…I did not have any details about when and where the activity would be occurring. I was generally aware that there was going to be US Special Forces training this winter and some of it would occur in the Whitefish Range but that’s all I was aware of. These military training operations are not intended to be publicly advertised and disclosed for obvious security reasons.

I hope this information helps… at least remove some of the mystery about what was going on.

Almost 70 people attend Christmas dinner at Sondreson Hall

The 2023 Christmas Day dinner at Sondreson Hall, hosted by Mark and Margaret Heaphy, brought neighbors together for hours of fun. The Heaphys were ably assisted by John and Tami Stone, Bernie & Vickie Wiedmann, and Ray Brown. About 70 folks enjoyed the opportunity to overeat and socialize with friends new and old.

Still sorting through the images, but here is the group photo from the event. The crowd was a little restless, so, if you don’t see yourself in one version, check the other . . .
