45TH BSOA ANNUAL MEETING RECAP
Thank you to all the BSOA members who came to the 45th Annual Meeting. With presentations from the Big Sky Resort, Big Sky County Water Sewer District, Town Center and Big Sky Community Organization, BSOA members were treated to a plethora of interesting and relevant information about the Big Sky Community. The reception hosted community interest tables from various organizations, each of which stayed busy chatting away with interested BSOA members.
