October 24th HRDC Community Needs Assessment Forum

Please attend the forum. Please also comment on the HRDC Community Needs Assessment at https://thehrdc.org/news-info/community-needs-assessment/.

MWF identified needs for:

  1. Improved mental health services and counseling
  2. Affordable housing
  3. Park County Crisis Intervention Team (CIT)

All police need Crisis Intervention Team training to help them de-escalate conflict and give them a larger set of skills. Park County also needs a crisis intervention worker to accompany the police on mental health calls. Gallatin County was funded last year for a Crisis Intervention Team, as a model and it’s very effective and helpful.

Margie’s stone bench should arrive and be installed sometime late October on a grassy spot at the corner of the Mayors Dog Park trail along the Yellowstone River where Fleshman creek joins the river. We are tentatively scheduling a small gathering at the bench on November 17th.

Community wide forums discussing the HRDC Community Needs Assessment: The Livingston meeting is Oct 24, 6:30 at the Park County Complex. Karen will have information for us and encourages our involvement.

Our Voter Registration at the Food Resource Center resulted in two new voters registered, one verification of needed address change and two registrations sent home to be mailed in later.

MWF must have a yearly membership meeting around January. We will discuss future plans and ideas for next year’s leadership.

July 12th 6:00 pm Windfall Film Showing

Windfall Film
July 12th 6:00 pm
Livingston Public Library
ROSS CRANDALL, Eagle Expert and Research Biologist, will speak and share photos

We’ve been following the proposed Crazy Mountain Wind Farm, which would have impacted area residents, wildlife, and businesses, and are relieved to see that this project seems to have been tabled indefinitely. We’re concerned, however, that the project may resurface—or that others like it will be proposed in sensitive areas of Park and Sweet Grass Counties.

With that in mind, we’re planning a movie night at the Livingston Public Library. The movie we’ll be showing is “Windfall.” This documentary tells the story of a community in upstate New York that initially welcomes the idea of wind energy, but ultimately opposes the development of a wind farm in its neighborhood. The trailer can be seen on youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cBYjZG8O6qE

Ross Crandall, research biologist at Craighead Beringia South, will give a brief talk on the area’s importance for nesting golden eagles, and the adverse effects that wind farms have on these magnificent birds. We’re hoping that a lively discussion will follow the showing of the film.

We invite you to join us on July 12th at 6:00 pm at the Livingston Park County Public Library Steveson Room downstairs for our showing of “Windfall.”

Montana Women For. . . is a 501(c)3 in Livingston, Montana. We’ve been working together for more than a decade to bring issues worthy of discussion to the attention of area residents. Please feel free to contact us with your questions or suggestions.

From co-sponsor Indivisible Upper Yellowstone: “Please join Indivisible Upper Yellowstone and our fellow citizens across the country to take a stand and defend our Constitution and our Democracy. We must tell Congress to begin the Trump impeachment inquiry and hold this lawless Administration accountable. Regardless of whether you lean left, right or somewhere in the middle, we all share the same Constitution and we all have a responsibility to preserve and protect it.

A core principle shared by supporting organizations is a commitment to nonviolent, peaceful actions.
