Jack brought his friend Gary Cash who is retired from Town Pump and has helped us at many of our service events.

Mark brought his colleague Paul Anderson of the Dillon Kiwanis Club.

Adriana, Hannah, and Michaela from the Circle K were here again. They still have tickets for their Holiday Care Raffle.

Shaleen (President), Catherine (Secretary), Hannah (Vice President), Connor (Reporter), and Cale of the Butte Central High Key Club were also present.

Claude also updated us on Bev's condition. She is recovering, but they expect it to be another six to eight weeks before they will know how well the recovery is really going.

We're selling hot beverages at the Christmas Stroll this Friday night. We will be set up in front of the Phoenix building and will be selling from about 6 to about 10. People helping set up should be there at 5:30.

This Saturday is the Thompson's food drive. They need food sorters from 11:30 to about 5.

Becky Nichols was our speaker, talking about the Lighten Your Load program through the YMCA. Last year there were 75 teams of 5 people, and one of our Silver Bow Kiwanis teams came in fourth place - by only 1.5 pounds.

The cost for a team of five is $100, and this year teams are broken down into men, women, and mixed teams. Each category will have a first and second place. Half of the proceeds go to the Y, while the other half will be split between the winning team's designated charities. Winners are determined by the largest percentage weight loss for the team overall. Individual weights of team members are not publicly available.

This year, if you skip the final weigh-in, you will be penalized 5 pounds, but if you participated last year and maintained your weight, you will get a 1 pound advantage. if you participated last year and lost weight since the end of the contest last year, you will get a two pound advantage.
