MTC and Rec board update

By Nancy Feehan

We held our rec board meeting and it was decided to have two separate boards, one for the MTC building and one for the community parks and recreation. Please contact Nancy Feehan at 307-660-7428 for interest in the MTC or Char Delfino at 307-680-5738 for the rec board.

Our goal is to get more people to invest in the board of their choice. The mayor and council will appoint the new MTC board on March 12.

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. This Saturday, March 10, we’ll have a sale on winter items with a white kitchen trash bag full for $5.

The MTC board will also hold a bake sale on Friday, March 30 at 9 a.m. at Pinnacle Bank to raise money for more chairs for the facility.

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

We are getting closer to the key fob system and monthly fees for the use of the gym and exercise equipment; spread the word.

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.

The cafeteria has been rented for a birthday party on Saturday, March 10.

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.

Candace Nelson does a HIIT workout class on Mondays and Wednesdays. You may also walk or use the equipment on the stage.

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.
