To mark The Billings Gazette's 125th anniversary, we look back at news on this date from earlier editions of The Gazette and the frontier publications that merged to form the newspaper.
On Nov. 24:
In 1915: “The annual Thanksgiving services of the Salvation Army will be held tomorrow night in the citadel at South Broadway and Second avenue. The program will be a benefit for the citadel debt.”
In 1935: “Helena's earthquake score has passed a thousand Saturday, but the five overnight shocks produced no new damage. ... The quake 'score' of 1,000 Saturday included the tremors 'perceptible to human feeling' since last Oct. 18.”
In 1990: “Mild weather coupled with dancing snowflakes and colorful floats Friday evening proved to be a successful draw for downtown Billings as an estimated 12,000 people turned out to watch the sixth annual Holiday Parade.”
