Over a decade ago, a holiday tree became something else in Big Sky – the embodiment of benevolence. With the “Christmas Giving Tree” a Big Sky tradition was born to make the Christmas season a lot more special for struggling families.
It was a stairway to anxiety, but soon became a stairway to community and thankfulness. When Morningstar Learning Center had a shoddy fire escape, contractor estimates came in around $20,000 – a chunk of change that the nonprofit did not have on hand.
The Rotary Club of Big Sky is proud to announce its annual scholarship in the amount of $2,000 to be awarded to a Big Sky resident attending college or a vocational post-high school program.
There is nothing Lee Griffiths does that is not well thought-out. His move to Big Sky years ago was quite researched and intentional. He knew he wanted to escape the rat race of the East Coast and settle in a ski community out west, so he spent an entire season visiting many resort areas.
I asked Sarah “Sippi” Sipe to sit down with me, delay the comfort of her home and cuddles with her cat –Tom Newberry – and to share stories of her abundant volunteer work. We spoke at end of day in the conference room of her accounting office when most people were gone – the faintest tapping of keys on one lonely computer could be heard.
