13-Our Venue
 Several years ago, neighboring communities (at least in Montana terms) which offer a concert series, got together and devised a scheme where members of near-by communities could attend other concerts for only $5.00 per concert. This increases the value of your membership dramatically. There are dozens of terrific shows out there and many of them are appearing in only one of the participating communities. There are a couple rules you must observe. You need to check with the presenter, as listed below for each community, to make sure there are seats available. Also, when you arrive at any of the venues, you must show your proof of membership. You need a ticket from that venue and you cannot be admitted to the show with your local membership card. Lastly, membership costs are not the same for all communities. It only makes sense that the arrangement will work only if you join the organization in the town where you live or regularly attend concerts. Take advantage of the myriad of shows available to you this season.



Fort Benton Elementary School auditorium unless otherwise noted.

All concerts at 7:00 pm unless otherwise noted.

For seat availability and information call Connie Jenkins at 406-622-2013 or contact her at
