is an amazing organizati on that is dedicated to the preservati on of the historical culture of our amazing Montana Roots. Not only did they teach me how to write a grant in one of their grant writing workshops, they also helped me write a grant requesting help to gather oral histories for the Huntley Project Museum. Then, we were awarded the grant and now they continue to give guidance and encouragem ent as I move forward with the oral histories. THANK YOU MHF, you are all incredible !
