Other pioneers present who have lived in Pendant d'Oreille since its settlement included Melvin and Oscar Snortland, and Oscar Finstad, having come as children with their homesteading parents. Most of the others present spent their youth In this community. Bill Widdop of Foremost had the distinction of having been the first to come to this area. He was a cowboy for the Spen- cer Taylor Ranch, signing on in the winter of 1906-07. The banquet began at 5 p.m. The guests were called to order by Bill Butterwick, .chairman for the gathering. Bill is the field superintendent of the Ca- nadian Montana Gas Company in Pendant d'Oreille, and has spent 20 years in this commu- nity. Grace was said by Arnold Stromsmoe.
