POLSON — For Julie Berry, director of Coalition for Kids, the opening of the Big Sky Bistro and Art Bar is a dream come true. If it does well, and early indications are it could, her highest hopes will be fulfilled.
“Looking at what our community needs in relation to the kids and activities and how to do that, this is what we came up with,” Berry said last week while sitting in the spacious interior of the Main Street building. “In terms of sustainability, this is what we’re doing. The idea is to make the coalition less dependent on federal and state funding, which is all we’ve depended on for the last 10 years.”
