Circle, Montana – For Mel and Kay Johnson, giving back to their community was very important as a family. The couple have always been strategic in where they put their charitable donations after combining their assets as wheat farmers for nearly three-quarters of a century. Since 2000, Mel and Kay often sent philanthropic gifts to the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch Foundation on behalf of friends and family members. As they developed a relationship with the Foundation, they became more involved with the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch and the impact the organization has on so many people. With a mission to connect caring people to help prepare young people for life, Mel and Kay Johnson continued their giving until their last moments to help the organization succeed. This included the 1,280 acres of farmland now up for auction on June 14, organized by Kinsey Auctioneers & Real Estate.
Since 1956, the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch has been recognized locally and nationally as a leader in mental health care for children and their families. Through their various programs and treatments over the years, they have reached over 10,000 young people. Their desire to encourage every young spirit with hope, courage and confidence has impacted so many lives, including Mel and Kay Johnson.
Upon retirement, Mel and Kay made the conscious decision to donate some of their McCone County farmland to Yellowstone. This carefully planned transfer was their way of establishing a lifelong generosity dedicated to the organization. As Mel and Kay have completed their circle of life, the land is now being offered for sale by the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch. Kinsey Auctioneers & Real Estate LLC will hold the public auction for interested buyers of the 1,280 acres that Mel and Kay Johnson left as a gift for such an important mission. In appreciation for all the Johnsons have done to support the organization, the Yellowstone Boys and Girls Ranch has established a scholarship fund in their honor. In addition to the purse, some of the money will go to McCone County, where the former Johnson Wheat Farm is located.
