Today we were joined by Matt Hoffman from the Montana Standard and Doug Ingraham, of Ingraham Environmental. Mark also had his wife Nicole visiting. And, of course, Matt from the Circle K.

Matt reminded us of the Kiwanis Family Barbeque that the Circle K is hosting this Saturday from about 5 to about 8 at Leonard Field. Kiwanians attending are asked to bring a side dish to help out feeding the masses!

Keith reminded us of the Builder's Club meeting tomorrow at 12:30 in Miss Tutty's classroom at Central middle school, and the Key Club meeting Thursday in the Library at Central high school.

Jerry let us know more about the MPPA Foundation and Montana COPS raffle. Tickets are $10 and the prize is tickets to the November 23 NFL Game in the Twin Cities. Check with Jerry for tickets or more details on this great raffle.

Keith gave us an update on our club's raffle. We've had four more tickets sold and money turned in, so we're off to a good start. Remember, you can turn in tickets as soon as you sell them, you don't have to wait until you have everything sold. We have more tickets if you didn't get any and want to sell a couple, or if you have already sold out.

Cathy also had us send around a sign-up sheet for people who want to help with the planning and setup for our Installation Dinner scheduled for Thursday, October 9.

And, finally, Lee is looking for help judging the Sunflower Seed Spitting Contest at the Original this Thursday at 7:30 before the movie. If you can help out, please let Lee know.

Mark then introduced our speaker, Mark (the other Mark).

Mark gave us some background on some of the preservation and re-purposing projects he has been involved in recently including the Belmont Senior Center. He pointed out how these projects take time and effort to determine the best purpose for a building.

At the Greeley school, they are working on converting most of the building into two bedroom apartments. The grounds they are working on converting to parking to accommodate the apartments and a space for light retail or non-profit occupancy, as well as creating additional green space in the neighborhood. Part of this includes plans to refurbish the playground on the premises and open it back to the public. They are also looking to remove much of the asphalt around the playground to install picnic areas and possibly a native plant learning space.
