The Huntley Project FFA Chapter took time during their recent Sweetheart Ball to present special recognition to Duane Ankney, who has represented the Huntley Project in the Montana Legislature since 2007.
In 2013, Representative Ankney chaired the powerful House Appropriations committee, where he supported House Bill 86, that resulted in historic support to fund career and vocational/technical education organizations like FFA.
Thanks to this kind of legislation the past few years, Montana has added over a dozen new FFA Chapters, and hundreds of FFA Members!

In 1964, the Huntley Project Lions Club organized the first ‘Homesteader Days.’ The two-day celebration is held each year on the second weekend in July as a memorial to homesteaders who settled the area. The celebration honors a hardy breed of pioneer who came on foot, by covered wagon, or by immigrant train to carve out a fertile valley in a land of sagebrush and greasewood.
Monday makes 50 years since Lonnie Bell first set foot in Billings. We're going to make it Lonnie Bell Day at KGHL. Lonnie Bell came to Billings at the age of 39 years old, after a 20-year active duty career in the Navy. Gary Todd had asked him to come to KOYN AM-910 for a few days to work for Del Cody, Gene William, and Paul Crane. And Lonnie has been here ever since.
Listen to Lonnie Bell's Classic Country Sunday as Ed McIntosh has some special programming cooked up for this extraordinary achievement.
