The monthly meeting of the Keith Civic Club was held at the Keith Community Center with a covered dish meal that began at 6:30 p.m. and was enjoyed by all present.
It was announced that at the July meeting people are asked to bring finger foods such as sandwiches, chips, dips, cookies and homemade ice cream. Work needed to the building was discussed in the business meeting. Club president Bob Templeton Jr. found a man that will do most of the work for pay.
