Hook Up with the Tow Rope Tour!
Why The Tow Rope Tour?
Tow ropes are a tool used to provide a connection and a tug to get out of a sticky situation.
As for the Tour, the tow rope represents something much deeper: The pride and resourcefulness you feel to extend the tow rope and the hope and relief it brings to those who connect on the other end.
Part of what makes Montanans unique is we would never leave someone on the side of the road. You never know when the next car will be along. We stop. We help. We reach out to our neighbors.
Now, that’s something to celebrate.
What will the Tour Include?
Northern Broadcasting will travel the state to broadcast Voices of Montana and Northern Ag Network programming LIVE and LOCAL from communities across Montana!
Each tour stop will include radio interviews and social media content from businesses, farms and tourist attractions across the state.
And don’t forget prize giveaways and the (soon to be famous) “Tow Rope Hero Award.”
What's a Tow Rope Hero?
While YOUR Tow Rope Hero might certainly be someone who has towed you out of a ditch, a tow rope hero is anyone who has had the courage and patience to stop and think of others.
- An entrepreneur who created a business to fill a need in your town. (Like Big Sky RancHers from Lewistown)
- A parent who stepped in to be an FFA Advisor after a teacher left (Like Stefanie Leach from Ledger)
- A neighbor who helps plow you out (Like Bob Bergren from Havre)
Whoever your Tow Rope Hero is, let’s honor them!
