Dinner and Dance to Benefit Long-Time Ag Educator Jack Larson

by Colter Brown

(Miles City) – Friends and former students of Jack Larson are inviting everyone to a Cancer Benefit Dinner/Dance and Auction to raise funds to help with medical bills for Miles City’s long-time Ag Educator.

  • Saturday May 7th at 6pm
  • At the Homeshow Building at the Eastern Montana Fairgrounds

Organizers are planning a Barbeque Dinner, a 50/50 raffle, Benefit Auction, and Dance with music provided by “Stolen Roan”. 

All the proceeds will go to Jack Larson and his family to help with expenses in his fight with cancer.

Raised near Pompey’s Pillar where his family ranched, Jack’s father had a plumbing and heating business on the Huntley Project.

Not many Ag Educators in Eastern Montana have made as big an impact, in as many different lives, as Jack Larson has.

After graduating with an Ag Education degree from Montana State, Jack taught ag for four years in Melstone High School and then for the next 21 years was the Ad Ed Instructor and FFA Advisor in Miles City.

After Larson retired from teaching high school, he spent five years as the agricultural and vocational coordinator at Miles Community College. Then in 2010, Larson started a vocational program at the Pine Hills Youth Correctional Facility for Boys.

Many years since I have seen you. I get to see your Mom because I play music at West Park quite often. She is always happy to see me and talk about the old times. I beat cancer and so can you.

Great cause for a truly worthy gentleman, and I as still certain Jack still deserves after nearly 40 years since our last visit.
Will we be able to bid online or through FB on the auction items?
Thanks, with thoughts and prayers for Jack and his family.

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
