Bankers in Jeans - Conrad Group

Next Time You See A Banker in Jeans, Thank Them!

Stockman Bank has always been a firm believer in giving back to communities across Montana. In fact, this is the cornerstone we were founded on. Employees are encouraged and supported wholeheartedly to give back to their communities. One way our employees give back happens weekly on “Jeans Friday.” Employees contribute a certain amount, usually $2.00 to wear jeans to work on Friday. The money is collected and given to a charitable cause the bank agrees upon in advance. The small amount contributed from each employee adds up quickly with the communities becoming the winners.

Bankers in Jeans - Conrad Group

Here are reflections from two of our branches on why they participate.

Tonya Breding, Customer Service Representative for Conrad:

What difference will two dollars make? Two dollars will not go far… but if every member of our staff donated two dollars each week, we could raise well over $100.00 each month. In twelve months, we could raise over $1,200.00 and so on. In the last eight years, Conrad employees have donated over $12,939.00 to local causes.

Our story began in 2011, when several employees approached branch president Dan Majerus regarding Jean Fridays. Stockman Bank prides itself on a professional image and dress code, and we did not want to stray from that philosophy. Jeans were not an option except for special occasions like Bobcat/Griz Friday or our local Whoop-up Days, so we were looking for a way to expand special days. Dan was approached by staff members to make each Friday a “Special Friday”, and Jeans for Community was born.

Bankers in Jeans - Dan and Joe

The jeans money is not a donation from Stockman Bank, but rather from the employees. The money collected goes toward causes and events decided on in advance. Donations have been given to many local charities.

Bankers in Jeans - Brett and Josh

In 2016, our campaign expanded. The employees voted to also start a scholarship fund as part of their campaign. Our Jeans scholarship will be given yearly to a graduating member of Conrad High School, and the student must show community involvement skills to qualify for the scholarship. 

We are an example of how something small can become something very big. We are proud of what we have accomplished and look forward to helping even more areas of our community.

Rhonda Moore, VP for Billings Operations:

We joined the Billings Gazette Jeans Day for Charity several years ago – around 2000. When they discontinued it in 2016, we elected to continue the program. Since 2016 alone, our donations have been over $6,000 and we have given to several causes and organizations some of which include Relay for Life (American Cancer Society), Alzheimer’s Association, Christmas Adopt a Family, Suicide Prevention, and Family Service Inc. We participate in Relay for Life every year and donations to them alone through Jeans and other fundraisers have exceeded $47,000.

Bankers in Jeans - Billings Group

Our employees really look forward to the opportunity to contribute in such a fun and easy way. The cost is minimal, but the results add up quickly. It is a wonderful way to help organizations in the Billings community, and we salute those that participate in this very worthwhile program.

Clearly denim is not just for wearing, but for those in need as well. During this time of year, remember to give a shout out to those who pay to wear jeans. The next time you see a banker in jeans, remember to thank them!

Cat Griz Mascot Mashup

Brawl of the Wild… aka Cat/Griz.

For many Montanans across the state, this week is a time when emotions run high! Whether your blood runs blue and gold or maroon and silver, everyone has a stake in the game when it comes to the Brawl of the Wild aka Cat/Griz.

The passion for Montana football also runs deep for many of our employees. We asked a few to share what Cat/Griz means to them and to give us their predictions for the outcome of this year’s game.

Bob Burns, Missoula Market President, Griz Fan

What it means: “A win by the Griz means family bragging rights for the next 364 days!”

Prediction: “The Griz will take back the trophy with a 28-17 win over the Bobcats.”

Paul Pahut, Bozeman Market President, Bobcat Fan

What it means: “The Brawl, to me and my family, is like a religious holiday and everyone knows we will be there.  The final emotional build up is an entire week long process. My 9 and 12 year olds have grown to love the build up and will hopefully go to the game this year, weather permitting.”

Prediction: “It will be a tough fought win for the Bobcats with a 27-24 final score.”

Brandon Dwyer, Missoula Commercial Loan Officer, Former Grizzly Football Player

What it means: “The brawl of the wild is the ultimate showcase for displaying the highest level of athletic achievement the state of Montana has to offer. For me, a native Montanan from Kalispell, being a Montana Grizzly football player meant an opportunity for me to “serve my state” by using my athletic talents to bolster that belief.  It was an incredible honor to be a Grizzly and being involved in one of the oldest rivalries in college football has been tremendous and I loved sharing my state with all of those out-of-state players on the roster.”

Prediction: “41-17 Grizzlies.”

Travis Wright, Miles City Senior Credit Officer, Former Bobcat Football Player

What it means:  “I grew up as a third generation Bobcat football player.  As a kid I would often hear stories from my grandfather and dad about past Cat-Griz games, former players, and the importance of the rivalry to my family and the State.  When I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to play in three rivalry games, I always had a special sense of pride in knowing that I was a part of an event that means so much to so many people.”

Prediction: “105-0 Cats”

Cat Griz Mascot Mashup

The History of Cat Griz

Saturday, November 23rd marks the 119th Brawl of the Wild, which will take place at Bobcat Stadium in Bozeman. The rivalry between Montana and Montana State began November 26, 1897 in Bozeman and is one of the oldest football rivalries west of the Mississippi. Montana leads the series 72-40-5. While UM holds a sizable lead in the all-time series, Montana State has won more conference championships (20) and more national championships (3). UM has won 18 league titles and two national titles.

This year, the Griz are hoping to break the Cats three game winning streak and bring the Great Divide Trophy back to Missoula. Last year the Cats enjoyed the greatest comeback and most amazing finish in Cat-Griz history at Washington-Grizzly Stadium when Montana State rallied from a 22-0 deficit to a 29-25 win by forcing and recovering  a fumble after Montana advanced the ball to within one-foot of the goal line with 14 seconds to play. The win also earned the Bobcats a berth in the FCS playoffs.

While Cat and Griz fans may not agree on much, Paul Pahut says there is one belief Montana football fans all share. “The best Cat/Griz experience is from the stands, whether in Bozeman or Missoula. You can feel the passion and excitement of the fans on both sides!”

There’s no doubt that passion and excitement will be on full display for this year’s Brawl of the Wild. Enjoy the game!



If you are interested in hearing about one of the most memorable Cat/Griz games in the history of the rivalry, our good friend Rocky Erickson has shared this incredible story. Thanks Rocky!

Back to School Kids

Back to School Requires Many Hands

Misti Anderson, Operations Officer in Sidney

Misti Anderson, Operations Officer in Sidney

Labor Day weekend marks the end of summer as well as back to school time for children across Montana. Our Sidney bank  has stepped up to support elementary students begin the school year with a good start.

We have just wrapped up the second successful year of donating over 600 new backpacks to Sidney elementary students, special needs pre-K through 5th grade, at both Westside and Central Elementary Schools. The backpacks were once again full of some basic school supplies as well as pencils/pens, pencil sharpener, crayons, glue stick, notebook, eraser, ruler, folder and three-ring pencil pouch.

Back to School

In conversation with Sara Romo, Central Elementary Principal, she tells us what this program means to Sidney Elementary school and students.

Sara Romo

What does this program mean to Sidney Elementary Schools?

This program shows what an amazing community we live in. We have organizations that put kids first and put the tools in our students’ hands that allow them to begin the school year with confidence.

How does this program benefit Sidney Elementary students?

Starting the school year can be stressful for families, and having the opportunity to provide backpacks and supplies for students that may go without, is rewarding and has a positive impact.

What has your most rewarding or favorite memory been with this program?

I have seen families come in and say that they will be late getting backpacks and supplies for the year because of funds. It is always rewarding to tell families that we have backpacks and supplies for them. Seeing a child pick out a backpack and making it their own is a reflection of how great our community is.

School SuppliesSchool Backpacks

The backpack program was started to ensure that local children have the essentials to learn and succeed at school. We hope this program can become an annual project here in the MonDak region going forward. Our goal for next year is to include other area elementary schools in Lambert, Fairview, Savage, Rau and Brorson.

A new school year is always an exciting time for students and families alike. A full backpack with new supplies will start the school year off on the right foot!

Richland County Fair in 1920

History, Heritage and Culture Kept Alive by the MonDak Heritage Center

Eastern Montana History

As I was growing up outside of Sidney, Montana, something triggered my interest in my family history. Maybe it was the pictures on the wall at my grandparent’s house. Maybe it was the stories my relatives would tell of people they knew and grew up with or things that they accomplished as paying jobs. One of my grandparents helped build the Fort Peck dam and my dad helped plant trees nearby. Some of those relatives could even describe the dress they wore when a special event happened in their teenage years, including the material color and pattern.

Eventually, my curiosity about my family history grew to include Sidney and Montana history. Maybe it was the M-O-N-T-A-N-A song that I learned while in Elementary School. Maybe it was the trophy case at my high school, full of trophies depicting special events of the past. I wanted to know where my grandparents came from and why they came to Montana.

Richland County Fair in 1920

All these things made a lasting impression in my life, so I decided to write down some of the family and Montana history that I was told.

Lover of History to Member of the Board

Simply, I like learning about history – my family’s history, the history of the land and the area. I also believe it’s important to volunteer and be an active part of the community. So, when I was approached to fill a temporary Board position by a person on the Board of Directors for the MonDak Heritage Center in Sidney, my answer was immediately, “yes!” Just as I am recording the history of my family, the MonDak Heritage Center holds and preserves the history of the Sidney area.

Over the years, I had watched this museum grow and evolve and was impressed with the direction the Center was heading. This museum had changed from a place with an old-time main street exhibit with various shops from past years set up in the basement, along with static exhibits on the main level, to a cultural center with history and art exhibits that change several times a year, community meetings, exercise classes and various musical entertainment and free movie events.

Engage, Educate, and Inspire

Today, the MonDak Heritage Center is a non-profit organization guided by a mission to: “engage, educate and inspire our community by preserving and contributing to the area’s art, culture and heritage”. In addition to art exhibits and special events, the Center now offers art classes for children and adults, including pottery and other projects. My granddaughter and I have taken several art classes and enjoy them tremendously. It has been fun to see the variety of art classes that are taught and the various projects the artists complete. There are after- school art classes and out- of- town art classes too.

Volunteers Make Up the Fabric of Communities

It takes dedicated people who donate their time and energy to keep a worthwhile project strong and growing. The MonDak Heritage Center hosts several fundraisers a year, including my favorite, “Celebrating Chocolate.” Stockman Bank has been a sponsor of this event for the past 10 years and continues to be involved. Only with volunteers and community involvement from businesses, the MonDak Heritage Center look towards a strong future, as it continues to contribute to the art and culture of the Sidney area and preserve history for future generations.

Dragon Hollow Playground Rebuild - Featured

SAVING THE DRAGON: Missoula’s Dragon Hollow Playground Rebuild

Dragon Hollow Playground Rebuild

Seventeen years ago, 4,000 volunteers came together and in nine days made a dragon come to life. The architects were school children, and I have been told they had some very imaginative ideas including installing a spit bucket that could be used to keep the slide lubricated. Although all ingenious ideas could not be incorporated, a playground took form and it became a treasured icon in Downtown Missoula.

An army of volunteers was again raised, but this time it was to “Save the Dragon,” because in the words of my three-year-old daughter, the children played so much they wore the playground out.

Super PowerHow it all started:

The project began when the original architects recommended an extensive refurbishment of the entire play area.

As we began to fundraise, it became clear that not only did we need to renovate the original structure, but we also needed to make sure that all children, including those with disabilities, could enjoy this play area. It was simply the right thing to do. With an amazing committee leading the charge we tackled this project and the Missoula community responded, much the way they did 17-years ago, with their full support.

Daughter Swinging Bob and Maeve

To refurbish the existing structure wood was replaced with low maintenance recycled structural plastic, many of the components were replaced including new slides, ladders, tunnels, and any remaining wood was painted and stained.

Dragon Hollow Kids

Along with these renovations to the current structure all inclusive features are being added including:

  • A rubberized pathway throughout the park to allow access by wheelchairs to existing play features
  • New inclusive elements such as a cozy cocoon where children with autism (and others) can retreat from the crowd
  • A large, cable jungle gym that spins
  • A merry-go-round that can accommodate two wheelchairs and a net swing to provide extra support
  • A slide where two can ride side-by-side, accessed by a climbing slope rather than steps
  • A swing designed so two can ride face-to-face
  • Activity panels and musical instruments.

On Thursday, late in the afternoon, a crew of volunteers from our Missoula bank joined in the efforts digging post holes, deconstructing portions of the old structure, building new steps and a lucky few were assigned the task of recreating art from the build 17 years ago. All-in-all nearly 1,500 volunteers are helping with the efforts, many in the pouring rain, and the dragon will be saved for children of future generations to enjoy.

Sarah K. Banking at Stockman Bank

She’s Only Five and Already Has the Wisdom of a Super Saver!

Teach Kids to Save is celebrated today, April 12. One of our newest Stockman customers, Sarah K., agreed to an interview on why she recently opened a savings account at only five years old.

Sarah K. Banking at Stockman Bank

So, Sarah, we understand you opened a savings account. How old are you?
Yes I did. I’m five years old and I’m in Kindergarten.

Why did you open a savings account at your age?
Because it (a savings account) makes me happy and helps me to save money.

Why do you think it’s important to save money?
So I can buy things.

What would you tell other kids your age they should do with money?
They should (open a savings account) because they might just be amazed.

Should they have a savings account?

Do you have any savings goals?
Yes, I am trying to save for a robot unicorn. It has wheels and can roll around. It costs lots of money.

Do you have an allowance?
Yes. If I do some of my jobs, I get some of the money. If I do all of my jobs, I get all of the money.

How much do you get for your allowance?
Lots of money, like $30. I have to wash dishes, make my bed and clean my room.
(Side note: Sarah’s mom emailed me this after our call. “I heard that Sarah said her allowance is $30 a week, she wishes! It’s closer to $3 a week.” To a 5 year old, $3.00 seems like $30.00. We know this will change when Sarah is a teenager.)

What do you think of when you hear the words

  • Cash? Money
  • Saving? A lot of something!
  • Rich or wealthy? I don’t know what that means.

When you get older, how do you think having a savings account might help you?
We would have asked Sarah that question, but her friend arrived and they needed to play, which is why a savings account is a great thing for anyone to have. Put your money to work for you so you can play when your friends show up.

We want to thank Sarah, her mom, and dad for allowing us to interview her. We hope this blog inspires you to start a savings account or encourage a child to start saving today, and remember that the minimum balance of $100 is waived for those under 18.

Celebrating National Volunteer Week with Carol Holman

By Carol Holman, AVP Real Estate Loan Officer, Hamilton and Missoula, MT

In honor of National Volunteer Week, we are happy to share a few outstanding Stockman volunteers with you. During the week of April 7 through April 13, you will be seeing individuals on our Facebook page and our Instagram page who have gone above and beyond. Many Stockman employees work tirelessly to better their communities in small and large ways. The employees we will be featuring this week live their lives in the service of others.

As Winston Churchill said, “We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give.”

To kick off the week, we invite you to enjoy a recent interview with Carol Holman, AVP, Real Estate Loan Officer in Hamilton.

Carol Holman - Volunteer

Why is volunteering important to you?

It is important to me to because our communities are only as strong as the people who live in them. If I can make someone’s life better by giving of myself and that improves another person’s life, it is priceless.

Which organizations are you actively volunteering?

Meals on Wheels (delivery driver), Three Mile Fire Department (FF/EMT, Board Member), Make A Wish (Wish grantor), Rotary (President Elect –President as of 07/19, Board Member), BV Chamber of Commerce-Board Member, National Fallen Firefighters (Escort families of Fire Fighters who die in line of duty every year), Team member for Relay for Life Bitterroot.

What motivated you to choose these nonprofits?

I choose to work with all these organizations because it allows me to give to people of all ages and backgrounds.

Making a difference in a senior citizen’s life by simply delivering a meal and visiting for a few minutes is extremely rewarding. Helping an ill child to smile, laugh and forget for a short time how sick they are is priceless. Volunteering in my local community as a FF/EMT allows me to help neighbors to feel cared for and feel safer in a bad situation. Holding their hand and comforting them in their time of greatest need is why I volunteer.

I am honored every year to have the privilege to stand beside a Fallen Brother or Sister’s family in Emmitsburg, MD and show them that I, along with others, will never forget their loved one. Raising money in the Relay for Life to help friends and neighbors battle cancer is so small an act. This event helps to accomplish big changes in people’s lives.

Carol Holman - Volunteer

What has been your favorite memory volunteering?

It is hard to choose, but I would say the times I mentored children through Big Brothers & Sisters (Missoula) and Companions for Children in North Dakota. Helping a child blossom into a beautiful young person and seeing them believe in themselves is the greatest reward a mentor can ever achieve.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced while volunteering?

Having enough time to give to all the above, I wish I had more time to give back to others.

How has volunteering changed you?

It has made me a more caring person.

Helping others has helped me to realize how much we count on each other for both physical and emotional support. I feel like it has made my life more complete and fulfilling. It is a privilege to have had the opportunity to be involved in the lives of  such great people. I treasure every moment I can continue to make a difference simply by caring.

Carol Holman - Volunteer

We are proud to spotlight Carol Holman. Her service and commitment to the many organizations she is involved with exemplify what it means to be a volunteer. Since we last spoke with her, Carol was named Volunteer of the Year from the Bitterroot Valley Chamber of Commerce.

Happy National Volunteer week, Carol! Your commitment to community makes all of us proud to have you on the Stockman team.

Montana Trout Unlimited and Stockman Bank: Partners With A Cause

Guest post written by David Brooks, Executive Director of Montana Trout Unlimited Unlimited

David Brooks

We all like to help improve our own backyards or our own neighborhoods. When I accepted a job with Montana Trout Unlimited a few years ago, one of the reasons I was most excited to do so was because the organization was going to start working on a project to remove the deadbeat Rattlesnake Creek dam near my home in Missoula, MT.

Rattlesnake Dam - Rob Roberts

It’s a rare day that I fail to walk, jog, pedal, or wade along or in the Rattlesnake Creek just below the now-obsolete dam in this stream, which flows from designated Wilderness into the heart of downtown Missoula.

Rattlesnake Dam - Rob Roberts

My daughter grew up frolicking in the creek’s cold, clear water on hot summer days and listening to owls hoot from the riverbank cottonwoods while ice cracked and popped in the Rattlesnake on dark winter nights. My affection for this stream, my daily experiences with it, and my excitement about removing the old, unnecessary dam that blocks its flow is pretty common in this area.

Community support for fully freeing the Rattlesnake is high.

With the city’s support, Trout Unlimited is leading this project, which will allow native westslope cutthroat and bull trout to migrate and spawn in the Rattlesnake without impediment. Restoring the floodplain above and below where the concrete dam now sits in the river, will add about fifty percent more open space to the valley. The addition of hiking and biking trails around the project will help accommodate increasing recreational use.

Removing the dam is proving an occasion to engage the Confederated Salish and Kootenai Tribes in reminding people about the rich history of how native tribes have long used the area, as well as allows us to tell the history of its development and protection. TU’s work at the site will likely provide an opportunity for university-level field work. Local contractors will be hired to do the rock rolling.

Local Support

In addition to community enthusiasm, local businesses have stepped up to kick-start the fundraising for this project, estimated to cost $1-1.5M. Stockman Bank was among the first and biggest to do so by contributing $10,000 in November of 2017. That initial gift has been critical to raising awareness about the dam removal and has been matched by other local businesses looking to help with this multi-year effort.

Stockman Bank Check Presentation

Fishing with Bob Burns

I had the chance to fish the Blackfoot River with Stockman Bank’s Missoula market president Bob Burns last summer. Having met Bob at various ceremonies for the donations Stockman made to the Rattlesnake, followed by a $7,500 contribution to TU work in the Blackfoot and another $4,500 for the Bitterroot River, I knew he cared deeply about forwarding the bank’s efforts to build healthy communities, including their natural environments and the recreation healthy rivers provide.  Seeing Bob fish made it clear that his commitment to angling and the outdoors is very personal, too.

Like taking out a dam, investing in the Blackfoot and Bitterroot helps us help wild and native trout. TU’s new Bitterroot project manager, Christine Brissette, is overseeing work to reconnect and restore one of the most important native trout tributaries in that drainage. Her work will reopen spawning habitat and a source of cold, clean water for federally-listed, endangered, native bull trout.

Rattlesnake Creek - Rob Roberts

And the Bitterroot and Blackfoot are some of the countless watersheds where the key to TU’s success is thanks to partnerships to with local ranchers. Like Stockman Bank, much of our work is with folks who know the land best, because their families have worked it for generations.

Cottonwood Revegetation

The Stockman donation for the Blackfoot River helps finance work on public and private property through win-win-win solutions for landowners, the public, and trout. A multi-year stream restoration on the Nevada Creek tributary to the Blackfoot is reducing erosion of literally thousands of tons of soil from a multi-generation ranch and, hence, reducing sediment in the river.

Our Big Blackfoot River chapter project manager, Ryen Neudecker, has also replaced an irrigation head gate to make water use more efficient and to keep hundreds of native fish from being caught in a ditch and dying every year. Like most TU stream restoration project managers, she is also using early, private or business donations to leverage millions of grant dollars that put local contractors to work. Local school kids have used the site as an outdoor science classroom and volunteer opportunity.

Willow Growth

Building Relationships

As great as it is seeing improvements in the stream that’s virtually in my backyard and being involved in that work, what’s even better about the work we do is building relationships. By focusing on Montana’s revered trout waters, we often benefit from and enjoy working with agricultural and ranching producers, biologists, recreational river users, agency staff, and community-minded businesses. Once in awhile, I even get to spend a day on the river with someone like Bob Burns.

There’s a corny fish joke that goes something like: Where do fish keep their money? In river banks. Ha ha ha. The truth is, if Montana trout did any banking, they’d be smart to consider doing so with their friends at Stockman.

Thank You Stockman Bank

Young Families Head Start and Steve Tucker

Steve Tucker, the branch manager of Stockman Bank Billings Grand Avenue, is on the Board of Directors for Young Families Early Head Start (YFEHS) in Billings. This nonprofit assists and supports low-income, primarily teen, parents and prenatal parents pursuing their educational goals as well as the development of parenting skills, while providing comprehensive, quality child care for their infants and toddlers, from birth to age three.

Steve Tucker - Head Start

Board Members Karen Moses, Steve Tucker along with Wendy Wheeler, Director, playing outside with children.

Steve shared his heartfelt story of why he is so passionate about being involved with YFEHS:

“Let’s go back about 48 years. I want you to envision a young 15 year old teenage girl living on the south side of Billings with her five siblings and parents. They live a very modest life, dad has a decent job with the Montana Power Company and the house is always filled with family, friends and laughter. One day, much to her surprise and that of her family, this same little 15 year old girl came home with the disheartening news that she was pregnant.

What? How did this happen? What is to be done now? All options are considered, but it becomes painfully obvious there is no way they can keep this baby. The family does not have the financial ability to sustain another child. Mom is just a child with the inability to care for herself, much less a newborn baby. Even if she did try to keep the baby, she would have to forego her education and opportunity for a future.

The Decision

After much discussion and debate, they decided the best option was adoption and just before the young girl started to show her baby bump, she was sent off to the Florence Crittenton home in Helena to carry the baby to term. Six months later, she gave birth to a healthy baby boy who was promptly adopted through the state of Montana, and she returned home to Billings to finish her education.

Fast forward to today. That same young boy who was adopted about 48 years ago is sharing his story with you right now with the privilege of being the newest board member of the YFEHS organization and the honor of representing Stockman Bank on the Board. We recognize the vital role that YFEHS serves in allowing young mothers the opportunity to keep their babies without sacrificing their own education and future.”

Steve Tucker - Head Start

Thank you Steve

Steve experienced first-hand the vital role an organization like YFEHS plays in our local communities. Now, he is giving back his time to an organization that makes a difference in the lives of young mothers and children with similar stories. We thank Steve and all our Stockman employees for their volunteer service to help make Montana communities better places to live.
