The monthly meeting of the Keith Civic Club was held at the Keith Community Center Thursday, Sept. 26, with a small number in attendance. The covered dish meal was enjoyed by all. The work done on the building was approved by the membership. Membership also raised the rental fee for use of the building to $150 for all groups plus a $50 refundable deposit for cleanup.
The man that did the work on the building was Chris Dyess. The membership would recommend him to anyone. A sign was attached to the front door with information regarding building rental. Some members made donations to help with the expenses incurred from the building work. Hopefully more people will make donations as well.
