There are all kinds of rumors about what MDT will be doing (or won't be doing) in Broadwater County over the next few years. Want to find out directly from MDT? Come to a public meeting May 23rd at 2pm in the Flynn Building 416 Broadway (the old Opportunity Bank) and here directly from MDT. Gino Liva, Butte District Operations Manager-MDT, and others will be there to give an update and answer your questions.
The MSU Extension Re-Imagine Rural program is hosting an in-person event that is taking place at the Watson Event Center on June 13th. I think its really cool that they choose Townsend as their location!
Throughout the summer the Canton Church hosts FREE events, open to the public. We have music events, interpretations of historic figures and Broadwater County history presented by Linda Huth, Broadwater County Museum Curator. Join us for a summer of fun events!
Please join us for Cemetery flag placements at both Deep Creek and Radersburg Cemeteries on Saturday, 27 May at 09:00. Fresh donuts and bottled water will be available at both locations.
Meet at the respective cemeteries by 09:00 and with many hands, we should be done fairly quickly as the Toston Blue Ribbon 4-H kids will be helping us again this year.
We will be picking flags up on Wednesday, 31 May 0900. Again, meet at the respective cemeteries and our 4-H kids will be helping pickup as well.
Karen Susag will be leading the group at Radersburg and I will be available at Deep Creek. Feel free to contact me if you have any questions concerning the activities for these two days.
Hope to see many of you at the cemeteries for this solemn tribute to our brothers and sisters in arms.

Support The Imagination Library
In Broadwater County
About the Program
The Imagination Library is a partnership between the Broadwater County Social Services Committee (BCSSC) and the Dollywood Foundation. Every child who is enrolled in the program receives a free age-appropriate book every month from birth until the age of 5. It is open to any child residing in Broadwater County.
In 2022, a survey was done with parents in Broadwater County with children currently enrolled in the program or recent graduates. The survey showed the program is already making a big impact in the community in just three years by increasing reading time, improving kindergarten readiness, promoting family bonding and fostering a love for reading. The survey respondents indicated:
9% felt that the Imagination Library has made a positive impact on their family.
8% felt their child’s enthusiasm for books has increased since receiving Imagination Library books.
6% felt they spend more time reading to their child as a result of the Imagination Library.
5% felt that the Imagination Library has helped their child prepare for kindergarten by improving his/her literacy.
BCSSC is raising funds to continue operating the program. The Dolly Parton Foundation covers the administrative cost of the program while the local organization funds the cost of books, postage and mailing. The local cost is $25/child/year. If you should like to sponsor a child to participate in the program or give a general donation, please complete the form below. BCSSC is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and all donations are tax deductible. For more information about Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library or to enroll, visit https://imaginationlibrary.com/.
