Hello to Old Missoula: Missoula's History through Art
· Hosted by The Historical Museum at Fort Missoulaand Ten Spoon Vineyard + Winery
Friday, May 17, 2019 at 5:30 PM – 9 PM
Hosted by The Historical Museum at Fort Missoula
Did you know there was a Poor Farm in the Rattlesnake from 1880s - 1930s? Ever wonder what it might have been like to live here during the Glacier Lake Missoula era? Or to drive the Strip during the 70s? How about the work involved with making the Big Ditch in 1905?
Join us for this one-of-a-kind fundraiser for your Historical Museum and help choose the next Ten Spoon wine label! 16 local artists have chosen a decade from the mid-1800s onward (with a couple special eras thrown in for fun). Each piece will portray what Missoula and Western Montana was like during that part of our history! Artists will be on site to chat about their work and the research behind them.
Art will be debuted at the event and in the silent auction and YOU can vote for your favorite piece. The winner will be turned into a Ten Spoon wine label with proceeds supporting your Historical Museum! And don't forget, YOU can take a piece of history home with you.
- Silent Auction of these historical art pieces
- Live band, Malarkey!
- Little-Known history of the Rattlesnake
- Food Truck and Wine
- Walking Through the Decades exhibit
- Raffle and Wine Pull

MAY 18 Peacemaker and Search for Peace Awards / Public · Hosted by Jeannette Rankin Peace Center and The Olive Branch Saturday, May 18, 2019 at 1:30 PM – 5:30 PM at Imagine Nation Brewing
1151 W Broadway St, Missoula, Montana 59802 Twenty years ago, a nun in Great Falls, MT told Robert Rivers that he would have a connection to Brazil. At the time it meant nothing, but when he met Fernanda Menna Barreto Krum while working as a Nonviolent Peaceforce trainer in Romania. The two quickly became more than a connection and that magic has made an impact around the world helping people recover from conflict and rebuild lives. Fernanda and Robert settled in Missoula 7 years ago and while they have continued to have an impact around the world, they have built a center in Missoula that has transformed our community and many people in it. I am honored to announce that Fernanda and Rober have been chosen as the 2019 Peacemakers.
Imagine Nation Brewing Company is a place beyond beer -- a Center for Transformation, the first of its kind, where connections conversations and change can occur. Their logo is a buffalo, the only animal that turns to face a storm. Fernanda and Robert have supported many people in conflict zones around the world to face the storms before them and transform their communities. The Center they have built here in MIssoula is helping us do the same by making space for critical dialogues such as LGBTQI issues, climate change, immmigration, veterans issues or criminal justice reform. Robert and Fernanda believe that we are all connected and that what we do together gives us strength. They have given almost have of their profits back to Missoula nonprofits and given us all a place to transform ourselves so that we can impact the world. The African saying that inspires their work is Ubuntu -- we are who we are because of each other.
Please join us and the Missoula Peace Quilters to honor Fernanda M. B. Krum & Robert Rivers on Saturday, May 18 at Imagine Nation Brewing. At 1:30, Fernanda and Robert will offer a peacebuilding workshop presented by Denis Matveev. Then at 3 pm, we will introduce you to the five Youth Peacemakers nominated for the Fr. Jim Hogan Search For Peace Award and then the Quilters will present a special peace quilt to honor the work Robert and Fernanda are doing to strengthen our connections to each other and heal the world. I hope you can join us

- Give Us Shelter! A Walk to Salem for Housing Justice
We are in a crisis situation! Wages remain low while housing becomes more and more expensive. These costs mean that many low-income people and families sink deeper into poverty.
The economic crisis causes many people to become homeless. Affordable housing is in short-supply. This creates additional stress, over-burdening the community as a whole and creating friction between those who are housed and those without shelter. This is both an urban and rural crisis.
We ask the Governor and Oregon Legislature to do the following things:
• Declare a statewide Housing State of Emergency
• Stop the inhumane and unconstitutional sweeps
• Deliver affordable housing for all
• Stop police profiling and targeting of homeless people
• Provide basic services: water, trash, and toilets
• Welcome self-governing, peer-run, innovative communities
You may join us by walking the whole way with us and/or attending many of the events along the way. Soon you can register on our website: thegiveusshelter.com,
