ANSELMO–More so than some other areas, Anselmo has had its share of flooding these last few months. But that has not stopped residents from remaining Anselmo Strong!
The annual Anselmo Big Sky Jubilee is taking place this weekend. Tammy Burnett and Barb Cooksley told KCNI/KBBN that a celebration like this is all about having pride in your community and coming together to provide fun for local families.
“People volunteering their time, that’s what a small community is about,” Tammy Burnett said.
Throughout the weekend will be the Vote for Your Favorite Firefighter Fundraiser! Barb Cooksley said this is a fundraiser that will benefit the celebration committee & The Anselmo Fire Department.
