The Civic Club is sponsoring a town meeting on Jan. 14, 7 pm, at the Cobblestone. Jennifer Drinkwalter will be here to give us the specifics on the Cycle Greater Yellowstone event that will be happening in Absarokee on Aug. 16. We are expecting 600 – 800 bike riders to arrive Sunday afternoon and stay the night here. Some preliminary plans have already been made at the school for a tent city to house those who camp out.
It will take the whole business district and many organizations helping to make this a successful event. This will be the first night of their week and they will have time to take in the town and other activities made available by businesses in the area. They will be buying souvenirs to take home, and businesses may have to be ready to mail items to their homes. We are planning entertainment for them and they will be looking for things to eat even though they bring their own event caterer. They will need groups to unload luggage and load again on Monday morning, help serving meals, community people to be greeters and answer questions.
Please plan to attend and bring your ideas to the meeting!
