Bill Harley is Returning to Great Falls!

Renowned storyteller and performer Bill Harley is returning to Great Falls for several free performances for area kids, and fundraising performance at the Mansfield Center for the Performing Arts to support the Children's Museum of Montana.

CMOM is a great organization, and truly deserves our support. In addition, Bill Harley is hilarious; I enjoy listening to him even when the kids aren't around (of course, that may say something about the old maturity level).
