What’s the buzz?

ENNIS—When Esther Warburton left her home to run some errands on Thursday, July 12, there wasn’t a bee in sight.

By later that afternoon, a huge hive had built itself in the tree in her front yard. 

“When I left I didn’t hear a thing,” she says. “And when I came back a couple hours later, the whole tree was buzzing.”

Fireworks

A Bang-Up Fourth of July

ENNIS—The biggest block party of the summer lived up to its hype at the “Meet Me in Ennis, Montana” Fourth of July celebrations. Around 10,000 people packed Main Street for Ennis’s 83rd annual parade, and many stayed all day to take in a variety of offerings and soak up some—finally—summer-like weather.

Looking for recruits

Ennis School held a meeting for those interested in becoming bus drivers on March 27. While the meeting was slim with recruits, transportation supervisor John Lee provided information about school bus routes, trainings and certifications, and potential benefits.
