Once the hoist house of the proud Belmont Mine, the Belmont Senior Center for years has been known as a hub of activity for senior citizens in Southwest Montana. Services, socialization and assistance are provided to anyone 55 years of age or older as there are no memberships. And some of the services they are providing are not only helpful but incredibly affordable.
If you've considered attending a "paint party/paint & sip event" or have already "been there, done that," then more power to you. Such gatherings are a great way to socialize with friends and meet new ones while enjoying your favorite beverages and appetizers. Drinking or being an artist is not required, but simply putting your paintbrush to the canvas and enjoying yourself is. Acrylic paints are the usual choice at paint parties. Plus, other materials used to paint are ceramics, wood panels, wine glasses, and mugs.

The original plan was for organizers to unveil another awe-inspiring season of Butte's nostalgia to the public beginning April 1st! Well, just announced this afternoon some of that plan remains in place, but with a few twists and turns. While the museum gift shop and some underground tours will still open on the FIRST of next month, the museum grounds will NOT open until April 20th. Well, that's as long as winter doesn't overstay its welcome as much as it already has. Unprecedented amounts of snow on the premise led to the decision not to open the outside area of the museum as initially planned.
