Got dinner plans for Tuesday? If not, then pencil in these plans for Oct. 19: free dinner, door prizes and community camaraderie from 4 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Missoula County Fairgrounds.

Here are the details from the city of Missoula:

Please join us in spreading the word about this free public event, Family Connections, celebrating Missoula’s 100 Best Communities for Young People Award, to be held next Tuesday, Oct. 19, at the Home Arts Building at the Missoula County Fairgrounds.

Dinner will be served, and more than 35 organizations that provide services for families will be available to network with parents and kids.

The event is sponsored by the Dropout Prevention Workgroup of the Missoula Forum for Children and Youth and the Missoula Office of Planning and Grants.

Note that this is Missoula’s fourth time – count ’em again, four – being named one of the nation’s 100 Best Communities for Young People.
