2017 THE YEAR IN REVIEW

Montgomery saw a busy and news-filled year in 2017, some of it good and some not so good.

 

We had a lot of good news. We had new royalty crowned, people celebrating milestone birthdays, fantastic festivals and a new spring festival - Prvi maj (May Day).

 

Montgomery saw a lot of selfless people who stepped up to the plate for others who were struggling. Little girls raised a whopping amount of money for strangers in Texas who were affected by a hurricane. People went to South Dakota to help people in an Indian reservation and Le Center to raise money for cancer awareness. 

 

Students in our schools saw a lot of success this year. Many teams in clubs and organizations made their way to state competitions, and athletes competed hard on the fields and courts. Youth also entertained on the stages, in band and choir.

 

Of course, the news is not always good. There was a lot of controversy when the city terminated the police chief, (later changed to a resignation). Many criminals broke the law in 2017 and the Messenger covered the worst of them to help inform the public.

 

We also told some great stories of local people - Marian and Milo Tuma, Vikings Flag carriers, and Chris Kramer donating her kidney to friend, Nicole Patock.
