Murder at the Stensrud


A New Murder Mystery by Sara Reynolds and Maria Yost

When the townspeople of Bruin Creek gather for their weekly poker game at the Stensrud Saloon, tempers flare and old wounds are re-opened. Unfortunately, for one of the players, luck runs out for good! Why do the people of Bruin Creek want to cash in their chips? Who really wears the black hat in this town? You’ll be roped into the action as you help unravel this Montana mystery. Ramble to the west with this group of crazy gun-slingers, miners, saloon girls, school marms and good-‘ol fashioned cowboys. Chuck wagon chow provided by A Moveable Feast. Full bar by The Silver Slipper.


Join Us For a Workshop and Show with Marilyn Kentz!

“Will I Ever Wear a Bikini Again?”

Are you turning 40, 50, 60+?
Did you leave your keys in the freezer?

It’s NOT your mother’s midlife!

Marilyn Kentz (formerly of the NBC’s “The Mommies” and ABC talk show “Caryl & Marilyn”) has a fun evening of comedy, songs, recollections and observations for women whose bikini days are long gone. From chin hairs to empty nests to the elongating of certain body parts, she reminds us with hearty laughs and sighs of relief that we are not alone! And you’ll find that, together, we make hot flashes cool!

With encouragement from our peers, we fear less!

Author-comedian, Marilyn Kentz, facilitates an eye-opening, entertaining 2-hour workshop on Fearless Aging. She has written two books on the topic; for the last 10 years, Marilyn has been facilitating 3 separate Fearless Aging Support Groups.

This is a more intimate setting than the comedy show. We will go over 10 steps to fearless aging. You will get to voice your concerns and challenges that come our way at this time of life.

  • You’ll get a new perspective
  • You’ll feel supported by your peers
  • You will laugh at the common “issues” we all have as we age
  • You will experience the relief that you are not alone
  • You will receive help with some of the challenges you are facing.

The results are amazing.
