MTC and Rec board update

By Nancy Feehan

The Starfish 2nd Hand store is beginning its third year of operation and there has definitely been a lot of items come through the door and go back out. We have met the needs of the community with reasonable prices for clothes and household goods.

The monies collected are used for the MTC utilities and upkeep. We’ll have a sale on winter items with kitchen trash bag full for $5 for the month of March.

The MTC group will hold a bake sale on Good Friday, March 30, at 9 a.m. at Pinnacle Bank. Donations of baked sale items would be appreciated. Come and get baked goods for your Easter dinner. We are raising money for chairs, rectangular tables and exercise equipment.

The council has approved separating a newly created MTC committee from the parks and rec board. There will be an application available at town hall and on line soon. If you would like to serve with either group, appointments will be made on April 9.

Watch for the annual Easter Bunny happenings on March 31 at the MTC!

The key fobs will be available on April 2, the fob will be good for seven days a week from 4 a.m. to 10 p.m.; we’ll have memberships open for the gym and exercise equipment on the stage. The memberships will cost $25 for an individual, $40 for a couple and $60 for a family. Watch for further information.

If anyone has weight equipment i.e. bench, barbells, lateral pull down machine, cable crossover, adjustable flat benches or a Smith machine gathering dust at home, we would love a donation or a reasonable price.

Upcoming events for the MTC library are as follows.

Friday, March 16, a free showing of “Cokeville Miracle” will held on Movie Night. The movie is about the elementary school hostage situation of May 16, 1986. The lead bomb investigator will be in attendance for a question and answer discussion.

Friday, March 30, Community Good Friday celebration with “The Living Last Supper” at 7 p.m.

Saturday, April 7, Crook County Deputy Sheriff and nationally certified trainer Ed Robinson will have an ALICE training class for worshipping communities with a potluck at noon and training to follow.

These are all being brought to our community and outlying area by the Moorcroft Interfaith Committee, whose purpose is to bring our community together and to strengthen, protect and support the community. “Let’s talk to one another, not about one another.”

Open Gym is Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 8:15 to 10:15 a.m. Monday night at 6:30 is Basketball and Wednesday at 7 p.m. is Volleyball.

The gymnasium, cafeteria or library would make a great location for your 2018 graduation parties; it will be nice to have your graduation pictures set up for many people to enjoy instead of attending several home parties. The rates are very reasonable so stop at town hall to get the rates and information.

The EWC GED classes are held on Wednesday night at 6 p.m. in Room 158 on the east end of the building.
