Employees and family at Fort Keogh gathered together for a pot luck lunch and Ugly Sweater contest.  Organized my MSU Extension Beef Cattle Specialist, Megan van Emon, the event gave everyone a chance to relax in preparation for the upcoming holidays.

Jared Bellows, Sue Bellows, Amanda Williams, Megan van Emon, Brooke Shipp, Matt Rinella, and Luke Shurtliff were not afraid to show their holiday spirit.

The competitors lined up and the employees voted for the best "Ugly Sweater".  After the luncheon, Megan tallied the votes and presented the coveted traveling "Monkey trophy" to Jared Bellows, this year's winner.

Megan also took the opportunity to thank employees for their contributions.  She had also spearheaded a campaign to collect donations for two individuals at the Eastern Montana Community Mental Health Center.  The group was able to donate items such as Polo style work shirts, a bed comforter, room organizer as well as $80 gift cards for the two recipients.
