The ribbon tying will be held at Charlotte Dowdy's place this year at 1805 Robin Ave in Lockwood on Sunday November 19th. Coming from Billings you will exit the freeway at Johnson Lane and take a right onto Johnson Lane. At the next light you will take a left onto Old Hardin Rd, follow Old Hardin Road until it curves to the left. after the curve go two blocks to Bluebird Street and take a left, go two blocks to Robin Ave and take a right, The very first driveway to the right is 1805 Robin Ave. It is a white stucco house with a detached white stucco garage. We will start at 3pm and have the potluck following the tying party. We will have enough tables but if you have some extra chairs to bring it would be appreciated. Bring whatever you like for the potluck we will supply the serving dishes and cutlery. It would be a good idea to bring your own drinks. We hope to see you there.
