We salute: Rainbow Diner; Golden Corral; Vito's Italian Cuisine; El Tio's Taco Shop; JB's Restaurtant; Route 66 Sweets and Bakery; Plaza Bonita; Garlic Clove; and Rutherford's Family Restaurant. These gifts will be awarded at the Annual Church Picnic in the Hualapais on Aug. 2. A mere $1 ticket puts you in the awards arena for a chance to win. And then we have the Gold Bond $5 tickets. The top award is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 (since I am a technology dropout, I know not what this is. But, everyone is quite excited about the possibility of owning this). And, we have more - a family pass to "Keeper's of the Wild"; an Oil Change at A Action Auto; a visit to Cierra Salon; El Palacio dinner for two, and Kingman's famous Mr. D'z Route 66 Diner as well! The approximate value for all these awards is $750! Contact any Belle, call the church or come on down to St. Vincent's. All monies go to our Temple Building Fund. Next week we will dazzle you with the fantastic baskets assembled by our various church ministries. P.S. - Did you notice how cleverly we avoided the "R" word that rhymes with apple? This particular article was quite challenging. Did we do good??
