September 17, 2014 - In a small ceremony on the grounds of the Crail Ranch Homestead Museum, Rotary District Governor Roy Beekman, accepted a Certificate of Friendship honoring the contribution of the Rotary Club of Big Sky to the construction of the Museum Project Center.
In remarks, Anne Marie Mistretta noted that the Rotary Club stepped forward with a substantial donation at just the right time. "It not only enabled us to move ahead with our plans, but it also helped bring forth support from other local organizations anxious to be part of this worthwhile community project."
