Friends invited to honor Monte Fast tonight

Monte Fast has spent years helping others in his community.

Tonight at the Governor's Mansion, members of the community will do their best to give a little something back to the retired director of Friends In Service Helping.

Fast led the charitable group for decades.

Tuesday, there will be a reception and dinner in his honor at the Governor's Mansion beginning at 5:30 p.m. The cost is $25 per person for dinner, or $125 for those who want figuratively to sit at "Monte's Table." Proceeds will endow a scholarship in his name for students at Western Nevada College and provide a gift for Monte and his wife, Billie. Reservations can be made at 882-3474 (882-FISH).

Fast decided to retire this spring after 20 years at the helm of FISH. His replacement was his son, Jeff Fast.
