Let’s celebrate the new Affordable Housing that you provided for a lucky community in Montana!

  • We love to celebrate affordable housing in Montana. It is a great opportunity to tell the story of how it helps families and individuals and economies, etc.
  • We do consider it a way to combat the NIMBY-ism in the world.
  • We love to help create events that allow communities to express the importance of affordable housing, while celebrating their new housing assets.  It is wonderful if we get a chance to let all the townsfolk tour a unit, so they can see what is available.


We have experience with planning Groundbreaking, Ribbon-cutting and Grand Opening events.

We can assist with:

  • Invitations, designed and sent to community leaders, organizations and local press, also, county commissioners and state representatives, including the Governor, but their attendance is not guaranteed.
  • Organizing a slate of speakers, from the various partners involved, and producing a printed agenda.
    • Including a testimonial from a tenant of affordable housing in the community.
  • Organize a tour of the property, including a vacant unit, if possible.
  • Arrange a ceremonial event: such as ribbon cutting or tree planting.
  • Promote your event to the local media.
  • Organize refreshments: such as cookies and coffee and juice.  
  • We can assist with planning many parts of your celebratory event via collaboration with your staff.
