The Fort Assinniboine Preservation Association is one step closer to making crucial repairs on the Officers' Amusement Hall roof at Fort Assinniboine.

Northwest Farm Credit Services presented the association with $2,000, which Fort Assinniboine Preservation Association President Ron VandenBoom said puts the project to within about $10,000 of what is needed.

The project is estimated to cost about $100,000.

The association works to preserve the fort, once one of the largest military installations west of the Mississippi River, and provides tours of the facility.
