AmeriCorps crew works on Lakeside Cemetery

"If we had to bring in real pros, I don't know what it would've cost us," said Rich Manke, the Lakeside Cemetery Association's administrator. "If we couldn't find a cost-effective way to get this done, I don't know what we would've done."

Much of the work entailed gluing broken stones, leveling sunken markers and helping minimize potential hazards involving taller "marble-tower style" stones, he said. Some of the stones were broken into four to six pieces and some weighed up to 1,000 pounds, making the work complex at times.

"I was impressed," Manke said. "It's a lot more complicated than what I would have envisioned."

Manke said that the cemetery will likely look into bringing back a Northern Bedrock crew in the future.

For one of the AmeriCorps workers, the repairs were an introspective and an almost existential task. Joe Pfau, a member of Northern Bedrock, said he reflected on the area's history.

Habitat and BSSD break ground on teacher housing

BIG SKY- On July 12, Habitat for Humanity of Gallatin Valley and Big Sky School District, along with AmeriCorp volunteers, broke ground on the first-ever teacher housing project in Big Sky. The development will consist of two triplexes, providing six school-owned units on school district property.

“We’re excited to break ground on a groundbreaking accomplishment,” BSSD Superintendent Dustin Shipman said of the project; it’s the first time that Habitat has partnered with a school district to provide housing in Montana.

The project will help address ongoing struggles the school district faces, from losing teachers that commute from Bozeman—which comprises half of the school district’s workforce—after an average of four or five years, or the crisis that teachers renting in Big Sky face when landlords suddenly give them a month to clear out so the house or apartment can enter the short-term rental market.

Coming in at approximately $130,000 per unit, the school district plans to rent the triplexes below market value.

Applying for Americorp. Any tips?

I'm applying for Americorp right now. I have moderate but consistent community service experience. I volunteered at camps, art museums, and community gardens throughout high school.


If you are as enthusiastic as you sound, I don't know how you would not be accepted.

I know many many people who have volunteered through Americorps just being a high school student, high school graduate or in college.
