Happy New Year

Raising the Flag

The board of Butte Historical Memorials wishes everyone a safe New Years Eve and a wonderful 2023. We would like to thank everyone for their support in 2022 and in the previous years.

2022 was another year of changes at the sculpture site at the corner of Mercury and Idaho at fire station #1. On January 15, 2022 we held a 127th memorial ceremony at the sculpture site followed by a “Bite of Butte” fundraiser dinner at the Elks. In the summer we had a billboard directing people to the sculpture and the first part of our landscaping was completed. We had some very special guests at the sculpture site this summer; the Edmonton Bag Pipers and the members of the Montana State Firemen’s Association to mention just a few. In November we installed a vintage looking solar light on the call-box pole at the sculpture.

Our plans for the summer included the installation of lighting for the sculpture but supply problems with the electrical components has moved that project to spring 2023.

Stay tuned for future events and we look forward to seeing you in 2023.
