Tickets are $12 per person and must be purchased by April 18. Call 433-1916 or visit the Sidney Chamber of Commerce office at 909 S. Central Ave.

The 2013-14 Leadership class members are: Billie Taylor, 1st Bank; Jan Getchell, Sidney Sugars; Janet Cohenour, Blue Rock Products; Jordan Mayer, Interstate Engineering; Joy Barsotti, USDA/ARS/NPARL; Kelly Reisig, Foundation for Community Care; Ludmilla Keller, Richland County Extension; Luella Schow, Security Abstract Company; Melissa Dean, Richland County Sheriff’s Office; Natalie Conlin, Sidney-Richland Public Library; Robert Arrowsmith, Sidney Herald; Tyler Radke, Mid-Rivers Communication.

Members of the class have worked hard to achieve graduation. They attended seven issue days and three skills development days, plus a city council meeting and a school board meeting during the length of the class. Each class also develops a project which will be announced at graduation.

The featured speaker will be Arch Ellwein presenting “Richland County’s 100 Years of Leaders”. In 1910, Eastern Montana consisted of four counties. North to south, they were Valley, Dawson, Rosebud and Custer. Within 15 years those four became 18. Richland County was carved out of Dawson County in 1914. It was a time of exciting change and men and women were up to the challenge.

As actor/ historian, Ellwein will share a little history, experience visiting with tourists over the past ten years and a few choice quotes from Theodore Roosevelt. Ellwein, a local radio broadcaster and educator, has performed as his historic characters over 1700 times in 16 states since 1996.
