Employee events and fun

Donning hunter’s orange and arming themselves with small spears, Fort Keogh employees joined together for a hunt on April 12th.  Their target: Litter.  Over a dozen employees conducted a Spring Clean-up of the roads leading into the Laboratory and a section of the I-94 business loop leading from the Interstate towards Miles City.  Scouring the nearly three and a half miles of roadway, the group searched and secured a wide variety of glass bottles, plastic cups, aluminum cans, paper bags and even a small vehicle’s clutch assembly.  Altogether, the collection filled one 4-cubic yard dumpster.  That may not seem like much but search out a 4-cubic yard dumpster and you will see that it is equivalent to 108-cubic feet.  It was a very surprising amount of trash, leaving a thoroughly rewarding feeling of accomplishment among the workers.

After retiring their gear, the volunteers cleaned up and settled in together to reward themselves over a taco bar luncheon.  Reminiscing on the strangest finds of past experiences cleaning up the roadways and looking forward to all the activities that the encroaching warmer weather will allow. 

As the 69th annual Miles City Bucking Horse Sale approaches, Fort Keogh employees would like to remind everyone to keep our highways safe and drink responsibly.  Have a great summer!
