There's going to be a rather different baby shower on November 12.
This shower is for the "Seeley Lake Quadruplets", as they are called by neighbors of Denise and Dick Novak, who moved to Seeley Lake just before the quadruplets, three girls and a boy, were born on August 26 at Community Hospital in Missoula.
Next door neighbors of the Novaks, Bob and Jewell Starburg, and another couple, Bob and Juanita Ryan, are hosting the shower at the Starburg's home at 1250 Elkhorn Road on the Double Arrow Ranch.
The public is invited to the shower from 2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 12. In addition to the Elkhorn address, people with Double Arrow Ranch maps may find the location at Lot 32 on Phase 5, near the top of the ridge.
Bob Starburg said the quadruplets are home now, after a six weeks stay at Community Hospital, and "all are healthy."
Needs are naturally larger than normal with four babies at home. Bob Starburg said some items needed are pampers, formula, and clothing (new or good used).
People who would like to give something, but can't make it to the shower, are encouraged to drop gift items off at Rovero's.
The Novaks leased a house here for one year after selling a home in Potomac. Before the birth of the quadruplets, they had planned on purchasing and running a fly-in fishing lodge in a remote part of Canada.
Those plans have been delayed for now, and the Novaks are here at least until next June.
By then, the quads may really like it here and outvote their parents on moving.
