    HELENA—The Montana Lewis and Clark Bicentennial Commission has partnered with the Great Falls Tribune, MT Dept. of Transportation and Travel Montana to provide free promotional maps to businesses and other groups interested in offering them to their customers or visitors interested in the famous expedition.

    The 12x18-inch color maps show the Lewis and Clark trail in Montana and locations of key events as well as Corps of Discovery II locations across Montana in 2005 and 2006, with detailed descriptions of events and specific location on the reverse side.

    “These are suitable for distribution across the state and could be used at business counters, as placemats, at visitor centers, Chambers of Commerce or by anyone who wants to promote the trail and Montana’s commemoration of it,” Montana Lewis and Clark Commission Administrative Assistant Rita Cortright said.

    The commission partnered with the Great Falls Tribune newspaper, which sold box ads to businesses to defray the cost of production, she said.

    The map was created by the Montana Department of Transportation, and Travel Montana is helping distribute them.

    The maps come on pads with 100 sheets to a pad and 60,000 have been printed. The maps can be easily torn off for use.

    Anyone interested in receiving a supply can contact Carol Crockett at 406-841-2796, or Rita Cortright at the state Bicentennial Commission at 406-443-2109.

    To further reduce costs, the partners are asking that interested organizations pick them up in Helena, or arrange to have representatives of Travel Montana or the commission deliver them on scheduled trips across the state, Cortright said.
