I am thankful to have lived in Colstrip for over 47 years and have served our City now for over 20 years. I am thankful for the many organizations that serve our residents:

The Colstrip Medical Center - It’s caregivers, staff and board.
The Colstrip School District - Its staff, board and all the wonderful teachers that work with our most valuable resource, the children of our community.

Schoolhouse History and Art Center - It’s staff and board.
Colstrip Library - It’s staff and board.
Colstrip Post Office Staff
