The Butte-Silver Bow Public Archives will continue its Brown Bag Lunch series on Wednesday, October 10, with a presentation by Jim Michelotti and Joe Lee about Butte’s Mom and Pop neighborhood grocery stores. Jim has been collecting photos and researching the independent grocery stores that once served the historic neighborhoods in town. Jim Michelotti is a Butte native who grew up in the Meaderville and McQueen neighborhoods. Jim volunteers with the Archives and the Knights of Columbus and maintains a passion for Butte history. He is an active member of the Cristoforo Colombo Lodge, an Italian organization that has roots in Butte back to the late 1880s. Joe Lee is a former Butte Department of Law Enforcement undersheriff, and has been chairman of the Beautify Butte campaign. Lee also serves on the Port of Montana board of directors and is director of the Montana League of Cities and Towns.
