Well, now a group of archeologists hope to bring to light new findings of African-American homesteading in Butte during a Brown Bag Lunch Series, presented by the Butte Archives, Wednesday, August 24th at noon.

This time, the An Ri Ra Irish Festival makes it's return to town after a 2-year Covid-related hiatus and Butte is more than ready.

Thanks to this particular program the future is literally looking brighter. This calls for some serious shades!

Of course, the thing humans most commonly "put off" are CHORES. It's true!
