BMHC recently installed a flat screen TV and DVD-VHS player and converter thanks to a generous grant from Preserving Missoula County's History. The new equipment enables us to show programs at the Center, including Roundtables, Timberjack, and a recently produced video on cooking with a Dutch oven by the Hooligan Glenn Max Smith.
We continue to be lucky at the Center once again as we have received many gifts pertaining to Bonner-Milltown's past as well as donations of dollars which make it possible to continue operation. Chief among these is the donation of space and utilities from Bonner Property Development LLC, aka Mike Boehme and Steve Nelson. Reading this extensive list you can easily see the great variety of items that have come to the Center. We are grateful for all these gifts and hope that readers will continue to share more items with us.
