BIGFORK — ImagineIF Libraries and the Flathead City-County Health Department have announced the launch of a new series called “A Place to Connect: Exploring Life in Northwest Montana.”

Local experts will present on a monthly basis to discuss different aspects of life in Northwest Montana.

The event offers the opportunity for adults of all ages to connect and build relationships with each other, creating a stronger sense of community and belonging.

The series will take place on the third Thursday of the month starting Thursday, Jan. 16 at 10 a.m. at the Bigfork Art & Cultural Center located at 525 Electric Avenue in Bigfork.

The topic of the first presentation will be “A History of Central School,” led by Jacob Thomas, the director of Northwest Montana Historical Society.

People can learn about every facet of the Central School building’s 125-year-old existence.

The presentation features photographs and stories about Central School’s early years as the educational hub in Kalispell and the many efforts to save the building and establish a museum in the 1920’s.

Jacob will also discuss everything the Historical Society is currently doing to promote preservation and education in Northwest Montana.
