Our View: Looking towards a great 2023

Looking back on 2022, there were plenty of great moments for the Three Forks community, and there should be plenty of more exciting news in 2023.

One of the most important news items of 2022 was the continued work on the Three Forks Flood Mitigation Project. City officials have worked tirelessly to get this project off the ground, and hopefully, at the start of the year, there will be some positive news and the awarding of a FEMA grant that is integral to future plans.

2023 should also see another outstanding year for local businesses. Promotions like the Ladies Night Fall Walk and 3 Forks in 3 Forks had people out and about shopping locally, and it will be wonderful to see more of the same happening this year. Three Forks has so many unique shopping options and businesses, and there are sure to be more to open in 2023.

The attendance numbers at the last two Three Forks Rodeos have been through the roof, and it will be interesting to see if they can grow even more this year. The entire weekend is a blast including the Chamber events and should be again this year.

It should be another fantastic year for the Three Forks Schools as construction should be complete. It will be a boon for the school district and community to see the finished project this year. It’s an amazing district, and the students and staff deserve the wonderful new additions.

It will also be fun to see as the Three Forks High School sporting teams continue to shine in 2023. After some amazing moments including a boy’s state title in 2022, this year will also have plenty of highlights with some high-level talent and coaching.

The Three Forks Speech and Drama team is again shining this season and should make a strong run in the postseason. There will also be plenty of great things done by the students at all the schools.

There are so many wonderful people and organizations in Three Forks, and it will be great to see their success in 2023.
