PLUNGING FOR LANDON - Has become the new “thing to do” at the Tarkio Golf Course. This coldwater challenge has people plunging into the water and challenging others to do the same, with everyone involved donating funds to Landon, 5 month old son of Brandon and Alyssa Shaw of rural Tarkio. Landon is currently battling stage four cancer and these plunges are just one way the community has come together to help the Shaws with the costs of treatments.
