John Flynn, a graduate in Civil Engineering from Montana State University, built bridges and concrete structures all over Montana and northern Wyoming until 1989, when his family construction company closed.

Laura Wasilowski is a textile artist and creator of hand-dyed fabrics and threads. Her pictorial art quilts, created from fused fabrics and hand-embroidered or machine quilted, are collected and exhibited internationally.
