Reservation Telephone Cooperative (RTC) is a proud supporter of local organizations and their projects. Most recently RTC donated $1,000 toward the local film project titled, “Cowboys and Crude.”

“Cowboys and Crude” is Vawnita (Hovet) Best’s project for Rural Leadership North Dakota. After assessing the needs of the community, Vawnita saw a need for a professional film to serve as a recruitment piece explaining community values, services, quality of life and recreation. Jan Dodge and Jessie Veeder joined Vawnita to make up the steering committee for the project. Media Men, Inc. from Minneapolis will create and produce the film. Media Men is owned by Cody Schmick, a 1991 graduate of Watford City High School. The film is scheduled to be released during Watford City’s Centennial Celebration in 2014.

RTC has a strong donations and sponsorship program, which dispersed over $64,000 last year. Throughout the year, RTC participates in and sponsors many area events including fairs, 4-H livestock sales, parades, school events, fundraisers, and Relays for Life, just to name a few.

Along with donations and sponsorships RTC is involved in area communities on an ongoing basis through chambers and other community organizations. Many RTC employees are members of the local ambulance and fire squads and volunteer their time to numerous other causes.

RTC enjoys staying involved in the communities they serve. RTC Marketing Manager Kristin Jaeger says, “We care about our communities. It’s rewarding to be active participants and see their projects succeed!”
