Good News At The Center West

This came over the wire. I'm really glad to hear the Center West is open and in business serving the GLBT community.

The Black Hills Center for Equality is dedicated to serving the GLBTQ and straight community in Rapid City, South Dakota.

Located in a new 4,000 square foot space at 1102 West Rapid Street, it's a new home for a group with new leadership, a new name, and an outstanding new board of directors.

Dana Jones beat out several applicants as the new Executive Director, in July, replacing Michael Coats, who was unable to continue in the position. [The Black Hills Center for Equality is no longer officially associated with Equality SD, or The Center in SF.]

The Center is in a state of transition, but already has groups meeting in our new building, a reassembled library of both GLBT fiction and non-fiction, a Pride Store, and Wi-Fi access.

They're open 11-5 M-Th, 11-6 on Friday & Saturday and closed Sunday.

A weekly community organizing meeting is held weekly on Wednesdays at 5 p.m.. Please feel free to attend and offer suggestions, feedback, questions, and learn of upcoming events, groups, and volunteer opportunities. Up first, our 2nd annual HIV/AIDS Walk.

Or reach them during business hours at (605) 348-3244 -- which can be dialed as (605) "FIVE-BIG".
