American Legion Post 14: Thank you to everyone who attended our Memorial Day observation at the cemetery. While the ceremony itself is short, we feel it's important to pay tribute and honor all the veterans who have gone before us, and we appreciate all who joined us in that effort. Our next event is a "grand opening" breakfast on June 14 from 8-10 a.m. We've taken our newly renovated kitchen (a three-year project!) for a couple of test drives, and now we're ready to celebrate in style with a buffet of yumminess, including an omelet station and desserts. American Legion family members and their guests can come and enjoy for a requested donation of $11 per person. We want to make sure we don't run out of yumminess, so please call the post at 753-3555 to tell us if you'll be there. Post 14 is in old town Kingman, on the corner of Third and Oak Sts.
American Legion Post 22: Women's Auxiliary Unit 22 is having a Swap Meet and Craft Fair on June 6-7, Friday and Saturday at 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. each day.

Verde Road in Golden Valley.
Belles of St. Mary's: Once upon a time, there was a Belle with a fabulous smile and dancing eyes. This Belle raised a large family, worked the school system, ran a post office, volunteered tirelessly for her Catholic church and the St. Vincent Society - and she loved dancing. Thursday last, our little Fireside Chapel was packed to the rafters with those who loved and treasured her. It was time to say goodbye to Eva Neal. As so many times before, the Belles efficiently served all those who stepped up to say goodbye. These Belles are the backbone of our church and they shone as always - bless you, each one. Eva Neal, we thank God for you; rest in peace. June 1 is set aside to celebrate Ascension Sunday - our Lord Jesus ascends on a cloud and takes His rightful place on the right hand of God the Father. But first He promised to send us the Paraclete, the Comforter. Let us celebrate these truths. More dates to notate - June 7 and 8 is Fr. Mateo's 40th anniversary of his ordination, party time! Aug. 2 is the annual church picnic. Save the date! Big doings this weekend at St. Vincent de Paul - Saturday, May 31 from 9 a.m.-3 p.m. is a humongous storewide half price extravaganza! All sales to benefit the Wicker family - this is our chance to say thank you for all this family does for our entire parish. Remember, it is a "Bring and Buy" sale, first time in Kingman imported from "across the pond." If you have any questions, please call 753-4399. See everybody there!
