Lower Yellowstone L&C Bicentennial Commission
Meeting Minutes
Glendive Chamber
1:00 p.m.
August 16, 2004

Attendees: Marcy, Linda W., Linda K. &Sharon

Sharon asked if there were any additions or corrections to the minutes. Linda K made a motion to approve them and Marcy seconded it. Motion carried.

We received an e-mail from Clint suggesting that we attend the Corp II this fall in Bismarck Oct 22 - 31. You can find the schedule of events on

Some of us are going to try and attend a day or two, we just have not decided which ones yet.

Treasurers report - Linda K reported that we have about $1600 left of our O & P funds.

Sharon reported on an event that they are doing to prepare for Corp II. It is called Clark’s Cook out - Oct 23rd from 6 - 9 PM at the Mon-Dak Center. The cost will be $25 with $20 going to the committee and $5 going to the Mon-Dak center. They will have a buffet of foods from the era with buffalo, fish & wild game. They will also have entertainment and games. When you come in the door and pay you will be given beads and chips and you can trade them for different things. It just sounds like a really lot of fun.

Floaters guide - Marcy spoke to Mark Jacobsen and he suggested having Glendive and Sidney locate the historic sites and a little history from each one. Sharon said they had already done that earlier with David. I guess all I can say is keep the phone calls coming to David McIlnay and Mark Jacobsen so they know that we are not letting this slip past. I keep talking to Mark every time I see him. I will also call Dave is soon to see if they are still on track.

Canoe Trail - Mark is checking on a map with public access sites and reference to BLM floaters guide. These maps would be easy to reprint and we can give them out readily where the Floaters Guide are $4, I believe.

Linda reported on M C Clark on the Lower Yellowstone event. It went very well and we had approximately 475 people attend throughout the day. We had 9 speakers, 8 vendors, horse back riding, wagon rides, arrowhead sand dig, and the girl scouts had their games there. We have had suggestions to really push that this is a family day. We served breakfast and started the day with a bird walk that was very well attended, and had a buffalo stew, apple cobbler and fry bread for lunch. It was a perfect day. We had 3 speakers that overlapped, so we put some inside as well as outside. Melody Dobson attended and she said she was totally impressed, she said we are so far ahead of Pompey’s Pillar. I was surprised at that.

Challenge Cost Share grant - do we have a project we can work with this grant on. Marcy will check on the National Park service one and Linda W will check on the BLM one. Bring back the information to the next meeting.

Sharon told about an upcoming event at Ft Union - Indian Arts Showcase Aug 21 - 22. They have bead work & quilts and lots of art work. Curley Bear and Amy Mossett will be there. Amy plays Sacajawea from the Mandan villlage.

Yellowstone Golf tournament - status quo - noting happening yet.

Corridor Banners - Miles City and Sidney each have one but not up yet. Miles City has sold 2 banners so far.

Interpretive Sign at Sidney Bridge - this is something our group was interested in partnering with Missouri River Country with some of the remaining funds from our kiosk grant.. Linda asked what this order form was and Marcy reminded everyone that it was for a print from Ron Clark for the communities hosting Corps II or for L & C event fundraisers.

Meeting adjourned 3 PM.
