The local Sons of Norway Lodge decided to match Town Pump's offer to food banks in Hamilton, Darby and Stevensville this year.

Shown in the photo are many of the chapter members and a huge check for $900.

When you buy one (or two) of those delicious "viking" treats at the Ravalli County Fair, you help the Bitterrootdalen Lodge in their charity giving. They don't just contribute to the food banks; they help several organizations.

The public is invited to their regular meetings and dinners and events. They're a fun organization!

And that's also a reminder to go the Ravalli County Fair every year and buy the food and items the local groups are selling. That's one of the only ways some of those groups make money to exist. And besides, "fair food" is the only way to completely experience the Ravalli County Fair every Labor Day weekend.
