Church, town inseparable in Butler
Butler hosted its fourth annual "Butler Days" May 2, but in a sense, the tiny community was celebrating something much more profound: A resurrection, of sorts.
It was almost ten years ago to the day--Mother's Day morning, 1999--that the little place called Butler almost died.
Lightning struck Butler's Holy Cross Catholic Church, around 3 a.m., and within hours the church was a total loss--estimated at $500,000.
Officially, Butler is a township.
