Fifty years ago, on a beautiful autumn October afternoon, hundreds of local women gathered at the Armory Gymnasium on then Northern Montana College's campus to attend the 1973 Food Fair and Fashion Festival. This event was organized by the many homemaker extension clubs in Hill, Blaine, Chouteau and Phillips counties, local merchants in those communities, KOJM radio station, the Havre Chamber of Commerce, and others. The purpose of the event was to share information on foods and how to prepare them, homemaking tips, and upcoming fashion trends for the fall season.
