As the Director of Development for the Gallatin Ice Foundation, Anna Greenberg wakes up every morning and follows a routine.
It starts with waking up and driving to her Bozeman, Montana office. Although she starts each day with her patented positive attitude, her routine often becomes dominated by work she puts toward the Ice Barn, her town's primary ice skating facility.
And while this is largely a labor of love and source of pride for Greenberg, the maintenance the Ice Barn requires occasionally produces difficulties.
These difficulties are often driven by the challenge of acquiring the private funding that's needed to keep the facility alive and functional.
Yes, Bozeman features one of the more rabid hockey communities in the state of Montana, a fact that Greenberg cites as a reason she loves her job. This building, however, has only one ice sheet.
Ice is only laid down for part of the year here, too.
