Today we were joined by Jessica's friend Linda from Express Personnel Services. Matt from the Circle K was also there and let us know that they have started selling tickets for their Holiday Cares raffle. Tickets are 1 for $1, 6 for $5 or 24 for $20.

Kt gave an update on the raffle. We got another 27 tickets in today, but that only brings us to about 70 tickets sold. That puts us at under $2,000 for the budget for the year. We need to get tickets sold, our drawing is next week! Get your tickets AND PAYMENTS to Keith or Kt so we can get them recorded.

Keith reminded us of the upcoming K-Family meetings. Builder's Club is meeting tomorrow at 12:30 in Ms. Tutty's room at Butte Central Middle School. Key Club has a board meeting at 11:56 Wednesday in the dorm at Butte Central High and a general meeting at 11:56 Thursday in the Butte Central High Library. Circle K is meeting at 5:15pm in room 104a in the HSB on Monday. Also, we have a board meeting on Thursday at 5:15 at Metals.

We then drew for 7 shirts from our shirt drawing. The winners were Doug, Kristi, David T., Eric, Dave C., and Cathy! Congratulations!

Shawn then introduced Rick to let us know about the Centerville Community Center.

Rick grew up in Centerville and attended the Trinity Methodist Church. This summer, both Trinity Methodist and Mountain View Methodist Churches closed their doors. Mountain View was purchased by a man from Bozeman who is working to open it as a recording studio and performance hall.

This left Trinity. Rick didn't want to see it fall into disrepair as has happened with other church buildings in Butte. He is forming a non-profit around the building, and is working to open it as a community center. With the demolition of the Sons of St. George Hall and the Hybernian Hall in the 1960s, there hasn't been a meeting hall or community center in Centerville. With a number of seniors in the area, and a number of groups needing meeting space, Rick thought the building could be re-purposed.

The intention is to keep the upper floor including the sanctuary as is, and use it as a venue for weddings, funerals, and non-denominational holiday services. The lower level will be opened up as a community center.

The upper floor already has plans for Christmas Eve services, and they are planning to do a weekly senior lunch in the community center.
