The Missoula Theatre production of “Peter and Wendy” was the first public event held in the Event Center in Britton. A total of about 325 people attended the performances Friday and Saturday, and the Britton Masons served their traditional Chili Supper out of the Donald Naddy Kitchen.

A total of 48 varieties of cookies were available for the 10th and final Jo & Darla’s Cookie Walk in Hecla on Sunday. Darla Elsen and JoAnn Landreth of Hecla began the event 10 years ago and have decided to end the tradition.
