Old-Fashioned "Barn Raising" Sunday, August 3, to Dedicate New Center
Successful Bake Sale Opens
New Museum Project Center

The much-anticipated new Crail Ranch Homestead Museum Project Center was put in place during the week of July 21, just in time to host THE Annual Bake Sale on Saturday, July 26. 
The interior provided plenty of space for tables of baked goods, while the  "greeter's porch" provided a great welcome for Ranch visitors.
Community and visitors are invited to come out to Crail Ranch on Spotted Elk Road in Big Sky on Sunday, August 3, 12 Noon - 3PM, for an old-fashioned "Barn Raising" to dedicate our new Museum Project Center. There will be good food, short-but-boring speeches, and some good old-time music. Bring the family!!!
