ANACONDA — About 90 kids from Anaconda Head Start marched down Fourth Street with parents and teachers Monday morning to kick off their annual “Week of the Young Child” celebration.

Members of American Legion Post 21 helped raise the Head Start flag at Kennedy Common while the youngsters waved, cheered and sang songs.

Anaconda Head Start has a full week of activities lined up for its kids, including trips to the Community Nursing Home and Hearthstone Apartments, culminating with a carnival Friday at the Croatian Hall.

The federal Head Start program provides education services for children ages 3 to 5 in low-income families.

The Anaconda center opened in 1967. In addition, Anaconda Head Start is asking voters this year for a two-year levy of four mills per year to maintain services.

The levy would collect about $47,428 per year, given the current value of county mills.

Vote now! Question of the Week


Gov. Steve Bullock vetoed a guns-rights bill last week that would have allowed almost any adult to carry a concealed weapon in Montana without a permit. Do you agree with the veto?
