Train ride is a wonderful outing, a worthy cause

River

Jeremy Lundblad, a Montana Highway Patrol trooper who lives in Laurel, went on the first train ride of his life Sunday afternoon. It wasn’t a terribly long trip—Billings to Pompeys Pillar and back, in about two hours—but it was an enjoyable, memorable ride. “I normally work weekends because that’s when all the fun stuff happens,” he said. “But luckily I was off today.”

So were dozens of other law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs and other first responders and their families—about 250 people all told—who were guests of BNSF Railway. They came from towns all over Yellowstone County. Continue Reading →

Help needed to send kids to Polar Express event

Polar

The Billings Depot will be presenting its extremely popular Polar Express event again, on the first weekend of December. It features a children’s theatrical production, a visit from Santa, elf dancing, cookie decorating, a silly photo booth, ornament making and more. Unfortunately, not every family can afford tickets for their children to attend this event, so the folks at the depot are asking for community help in two ways:

NOMINATE: If you know a family that works hard and would love to give their children this experience but simply cannot afford to purchase tickets, please nominate a family in need to receive free tickets to the event by emailing us at jennifermercer@billingsdepot.org. (Emails only please; no Facebook comments.)

Because tickets are limited and the show is designed for children 3 to 7 years old, we ask that you nominate children close to that age range. Children must be old enough to sit on their own with the other children during the show. Continue Reading →
