Ringing in the holiday season

After community Thanksgiving dinners kicked off the holiday season in Chinook and Havre Thursday, the Christmas season soon followed with events Friday and Saturday.
Havre Elks Lodge #1201 held its annual Cocktails and Crafts Friday in the lodge, and Boys & Girls Club of the Hi-Line held another small event that night in the club for some of the donors to its Festival of Trees.
As it did last year during the COVID-19 pandemic, the club held the auction for its fundraiser online, with bidding wrapping up Saturday, but had held mini-events for donors, with that wrapping up Friday.
And the Christmas celebrations went into high gear Friday in Chinook, with the town's Festival of Trees silent auction along with a performance by The Bell Choir in First Bank of Montana, while vendors set up in the Blaine County Fairgrounds Community Building with a special appearance in that location by Santa and Mrs. Claus.
A dinner service was held in Chinook's Eagles Club, with the premiere event, the annual Parade of Lights, starting at 6 p.m.
And events are scheduled in the region through December as well. Watch Havre Daily News for updates on upcoming events.
