Rocky Top Tour
On the way to a family reunion in Colorado, Lon stopped at Rocky Top outside Anaconda, Montana for a short break and quick tour. The
three boys on campus at that time for the summer program, mid- July, seemed to be enjoying their game of volleyball, and had positive
things to say about their time there and all the activities they had been doing which included camping, fishing, visiting points of
geographical/historical interest, etc. They didn't seem to begrudge the chores and responsibilities all that much. The brick buildings
felt comfortably cool in the hot Montana sun and administrator Tom Finucane has access to an incredible number of buildings which
would allow for unlimited expansion. Tom can be reached at 406-693-2277.
