The Big Event

Big Brothers Big Sisters of Northwest Montana

Community Based Program
This is the “traditional” BBBS model in which a mentor (Big) and a mentee (Little) meet 2-3 hours each week outside of the home and school setting. Our Bigs make arrangements with the parent(s)/guardian(s) for a weekly activities with the Little. These outings can be as simple as a walk to the park to throw a frisbee or a trip to the local art studio to paint together. We know that the specific activity is not important, what is important is consistency, kindness, and a desire to grow together.

School – Based Program
Site-Based Programs: Our School Buddies program is designed to allow mentors to meet an elementary student at their school during normal school hours. Bigs meet their Littles for one hour each week, often during lunch and/or recess, for activities such as shooting hoops on the school playground or visiting the school library for board games. High School students are eligible to serve as mentors in this program

Our Site-Based Plus: is the same program as our School Buddies, an hour a week together at the Little’s school, with the addition of an opportunity to meet off school campus one time each month for an activity in the community. We see this is our best of both worlds program.

THE GREAT NORTHERN BAR & GRILL & Winter Carnival 80's Party!

Great Northern Bar & Grill History

The arrival of the Great Northern Railway in 1904 heralded the beginnings of the city of Whitefish. Incorporated in April of 1905, Whitefish immediately began servicing the needs of the railway, its passengers, and its workers. And, of course, a primary need of a railroad is a local tavern. The Great Northern Bar has filled that need since 1919. Its original location was on the north side of 2nd Street between Baker and Lupfer. The Northern remained there until the 50’s, when it was moved to its current location on Central Avenue. At that time it was owned by Jane Mathias, and was only one third of its present size, the rest being Kastella’s taxidermy and an empty lot. In the late 80’s, the taxidermy and lot were purchased, and remodeled into the band room, pool room, and beer garden. Learn more – HERE.
