Tap into Ennis was back after a year off due to the pandemic, and the smiles on faces and activities abound showed just how much events like this were missed.

Service on the fly

Service members were heavy on the minds of many over the last week as communities celebrated Memorial Day. Three current service members were also recently honored, in this case with a complimentary fly fishing experience at Madison Double R.

Can you sense the excitement? April Wuelfing’s six-year-old daughter Pattyn snapped this photo right after her mother learned she was Montana’s newest James Madison Fellow. That title comes with some perks, including a $24,000 scholarship to pursue a master’s degree in history. PHOTO BY PATTYN WUELFING

Twin spirits

As any woman with children can attest, announcing your first pregnancy to your mother can be a nerve-racking experience. Twenty-three-year-old Montana native Marisa Weppner was living in Costa Rica and had recently learned she was expecting a baby. The time had come for a phone call to break the good news to her mom, Joan Hendrickson.
