Our May 21 program with Tami Haaland will be filmed with no live audience – we will be closed from 11:00-1:00 on that Thursday. It will be available on FACEBOOK Live (like us on Facebook) and through Community Seven TV at a later date.
The Western Heritage Center, based on recommendations from the Yellowstone County Unified Health Command and the Governor’s Office, is re-opening on Wednesday, May 5. The museum will have special hours in May from 9-10 AM each morning, Wednesday through Saturday, for visitors with compromised immune systems. The museum’s regular hours are WEDNESDAY through SATURDAY, 10-5, and we will be limiting how many people can be in the museum at one time, as well as limiting access to staff offices. We will provide a daily cleaning and take any other necessary steps and precautions to protect the health and safety of our visitors, volunteers, staff, and neighbors as we continue to face this pandemic.
