Montgomery celebrates Irish family

At its 11th annual St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast, the Arts and Heritage Center celebrated The Russell Clan of Montgomery. Honorees included (front, from left) Kathy Russell, Mary Pat Russell (in spirit through a cardboard cutout) Arenas Jane Russell Holzhauer, (back) Pete Holzhauer, Wanda Gunderson, Gregg Gunderson, Maureen Gunderson, Pat Keefer Russell, and Dennis Russell. At a small program, Arts and Heritage member Kathy Peterson introduced the Russell Clan and pointed out that Maureen has been involved in the Arts and Heritage Center “forever”, and that she probably needs to “sit on her hands to keep them from working at the breakfast”. In recognition of being this year’s honorees, the Clan received a small gift. (Wade Young Photo)
