I’m sure most of you noticed the abundance of boats around Mountain Home last week. We were thrilled to have 324 fishermen in our community. As we visited with our guests, they shared how much they enjoyed our town and the beautiful area we call home. Thank you for showing them hospitality as they shopped at our stores, dined at our restaurants and stayed in our hotels and resorts. Even as we battled the colder temperature, we had a successful fishing tournament. We once again want to extend a big thank you to101 Boat Dock for the launch and weigh in accommodations, the City of Mountain Home, The Mountain Home A&P Commission, Nabatak, Inc., BASS Nation, ASUMH and our volunteers that helped make the tournament possible. Congratulations to Brett and Beua Govreau for winning the team tournament and Ryan Butler for winning the individual Fish-Off and securing a spot in the Bassmaster Classic in South Carolina, March 2018.

This week our Leadership Mountain Home class will be learning about our local Civic and Non-profit organizations. We will be visiting the Food Bank, Serenity, The Call and The Twin Lakes Literacy Council.The Humane Society, Rotary, Elks and Kindness, Inc. will also share their missions with the group.

Can you believe how many events have been happening in our community this summer?  And, we still have several more to come.

 

Did you notice all of thebuses and out of town license plates a couple of weeks ago?  The people in those vehicles were here to watchthe Babe Ruth Southwest Regional Softball Tournament.

 

Immediately following the softball tournament was another big event for the area.  The 2018 U.S. Amateur Qualifying Golf Tournament was held at Big Creek Golf & Country Club.  This event brought dozens of the top golfers from eight states and two countries to our community.

 

Did you get a chance to visit the Regional Airport and enjoy the static display of antique and modern aircraft?

 

What about festivals?  My gosh the festivals!  There were 4th of July fireworks displays all over the area.  Cotter heldits annual Trout Festival and Gassville held their annual Gassville In the Park Festival.

 

What about the granddaddyof festivals, the Red, White and Blue Festival? Thousands of people gathered onthe campus of ASU Mountain Home to enjoy the food, music, fun and activities…not to mention what may very well the best fireworks display in the entire state.

 

Pretty exciting stuff, especially when you know summer isn’t over yet. We can’t wait to welcome back the Babe Ruth World Series.  That’s right. They will be back next month and will provide us with several day’s worth of some of the best baseball competition you will ever witness.

 

Don’t forget there is also Friday Night Block Party on the Square, the Global Leadership Summit, the EighthAnnual Pink for Peitz Rodeo, the 2018 Women’s Expo and The Gem Mineral andFossil Show, all around the corner as well.

 

I’m sure we have probably missed a few events but we think you get our point.  We are so very fortunate to live in such adynamic and active community.
