'Lifespan of a Fact' set for Feb. 26-27 online
WTC returns with Black Curtain shows

     After taking a brief COVID-related "intermission," the Whitefish Theatre Company is thrilled to be back this spring with four new Black Curtain productions.

     The first show -- Lifespan of a Fact -- is set for online viewing only on February 26 and 27, but as vaccines roll-out and COVID cases continue to decline the folks at WTC are looking forward to having limited live audiences in-house in the very near future!

CVB asks lodgers ... how's business? 

     In an effort to better understand the current status of winter visitation and the effects of COVID-19, the Whitefish Convention & Visitors Bureau is once again asking local lodging properties to take five minutes and complete an anonymous survey.

    The results will be compiled and shared with those who participate ... but you need to do it today!  CLICK HERE to take the survey, and if you operate more than one lodging business, please fill out a separate survey for each property.  The survey will close at 5 p.m. Frisday, so please take a few minutes to participate now!
