The name of the organization, Great Falls Club of the Deaf (GFCD), was established in September 24, 1941. The GFCD is a chapter of the Montana Association of the Deaf, Inc. (MAD).
The purposes and objectives of the organization are as follows:
- To create and maintain a close friendly bond and a spirit of good fellowship among deaf persons and their friends.
- To promote the welfare and mutual assistance of the deaf living in or near the city of Great Falls.
- To enjoy social pleasures following periodic meetings
The regular/social meetings of Great Falls Club of the Deaf are held every third Saturday of September, November, January, March and May. The meetings begin at 7:00 PM at the Mustang Center of Montana School for the Deaf and the Blind (MSDB), 3911 Central Avenue, Great Falls, Montana.
Any deaf and hearing person who resides in or near Great Falls is eligible for full active membership dues. The annual GFCD membership dues are $10.00 per year starting from September 1st to August 31st.
We hold numerous fun events such as picnics, parties (especially our annual Christmas party!), and do some fund raisers during the year. We have sponsored our GFCD men members to play in the local basketball leagues annually. We have made numerous donations to any organizations or othes for the good causes.
