Woman, One: “Missoula. And it’s summer. And it’s the first Friday. And tomorrow it’s Saturday market. And it’s so great, seeing all the kids and families out, and folks you haven’t see all winter long. And sometime they have a new baby.

And it’s really awesome to see everyone out and about. I really feel connected to the community, joining art and joining each other.

That’s what makes Missoula so great — it’s the community.”
