If you're too old to become a rodeo queen, design jewelry for one! That was my thinking when I approached Kayla, the reigning Miss Rodeo Montana 2019.
Kayla is the first Kalispell rodeo queen in a lot of years, more than anyone cares to count. So, the whole community rallied around her to support her quest in the Miss Rodeo USA pageant. There were fundraising galas, big company donations and sponsorships, but what could a small, independent jewelry designer do to help support the local rodeo queen?
With summer on its way, most people are thinking about ways to fit as much fun as possible into their vacation plans. So, what if you've got no time or no money to get out of town for vacation? No worries! There are plenty of fun things to do in Kalispell, even if you can't spare time to make it to the Glacier, Flathead Lake, or other attractions close by. The 10 ideas below won't even require you to drive as far as Whitefish. Heck, you don't even need a car to enjoy most of them.
