"Most hospitable and friendly community in Montana"

Friendly hospitality and a true sense of community where friends and neighbors help each other. People are always willing to step up and volunteer when the opportunity arises. Whenever tragedy or a bad fortune befalls a family in the community, the whole community steps forward to help.

A family lost everything due to a house fire and the community stepped in to help make them whole again as much as possible. There have been instances where the community came forward to help injured and sick farmers or ranchers from performing farm duties to harvesting crops.
