"COVID starts fires and kills Christmas trees now? Holey moley." That was one reaction to the news that Montana won't have a Christmas tree in the state capitol in Helena this year. Another commenter called it Bullock's "final little FU on the way out the door."
If you haven't gotten your Christmas tree yet, and you want to support a good cause, you can do both. Many of you are familiar with the women's Teen Challenge program based in Missoula. Now, there is also a new men's Adult and Teen Challenge program based in Billings that will be serving the entire region. Both organizations are doing Christmas tree fundraisers in both cities.
