Thursday, January 27, the Russell Community Club will hold it's monthly meeting at the Russell Community Center at 6:30pm. A light supper will be provided. The public is invited to come and check out the organization.
On the agenda for this meeting: Looking into the possibilities of providing activities for the kids of Russell and the surrounding area. If you have children or grandchildren, come and help us get something started.
We'll have an update on our tax-exempt status. We are working toward being an independent community organization for the betterment of Russell.
Do you have any ideas for the community? Bring them to the meeting. Present them to the group. Maybe we can help you get them implemented. All ideas are welcome.
The work continues on the ball fields. Mike Beaty and Lowell Sims and others have done a lot of work already, so we can have camping and a music festival.
