It’s back – another edition of Terrific News Tuesday (TNT) because everyone needs a little good news once in awhile.
There’s no griping or complaining today – just some terrific news that caught my attention!
Here is some of the good stuff in this edition of TNT:
- Zootown All-Stars
- Great Falls Rescue Mission
- Downpour Music Festival
- The Smile Mission
- Denver Police
It was great to watch the Zootown All-Stars (from Missoula, Montana) defeat Michigan 10-0 in the championship game of the Senior League Softball World Series on Saturday afternoon. It was televised on ESPN. (Source)
Zootown dominated the tournament. Congratulations!
Great Falls Rescue Mission:
The Great Falls Rescue Mission does wonderful work in our community. They are hosting a “Back to School” rally on August 23rd to hand out backpacks full of school supplies.
They need supplies, so if you would like to donate school supplies or money to help buy some, visit the Mission at 326 2nd Avenue South by this Friday, August 14. (Source)

The Smile Mission:
Six-year-old Jaden Hayes lost his dad when he was four and then last month his mom died unexpectedly in her sleep. Although sad himself, Jaden was tired of seeing everyone sad all the time, so he decided to try to fix it.
Read/watch Jaden’s story that appeared on CBS Evening News last week HERE – and be prepared to smile.
On July 29 Denver Police launched an initiative that rewards people for courteous actions, helping others and obeying the law, with a free pizza. (Source)
You never know when being courteous will pay off!
