Wayne Anderson’s passion for pots displayed itself at an early age.
“As a child, Wayne found clay on his family’s small farm outside of Whitefish and made logging trucks, loggers, and animals for his miniature logging camps.” said Anderson’s wife, Laurie.
“I never imagined doing anything other than making play things with clay until college,” Anderson added. His imagination has been in overdrive ever since college.
Wayne and Laurie met at Whitefish High School, but had little to do with each other until after she attended a bit of college at Brigham Young University (BYU) and then returned to Whitefish to work at Big Mountain Ski Resort, and after he worked a couple of years at J. Neils Lumber Co. in Libby. A few years after they married, they moved to Dillon where Wayne earned his Bachelor of Science degree in English and Art.
It just gets better every year, and with Barbie Killion from the Conrad Area Chamber of Commerce, Chief Gary Dent (CPD) and Jamey Byrnes from Gary and Leo’s IGA how could it not?
We’re talking about the National Night Out (NNO) here, and the place to be on Aug. 5 is the Conrad Lions Swimming Pool Park from 5-9 p.m.
