If you're a Post 14 Legionnaire who served during the Korean War, Scott will have a certificate to present to you at this meeting. Our next event at the Post is the S.A.L. pool tournament on Jan. 19. Five bucks will get you in. It will start at noon; call 753-3555 for more details. If you're one of the 64 members who has not yet renewed for 2013, please do so soon. Those reminders you're getting from national are costing money that could go toward other programs. Post 14 is on the corner of Third and Oak in downtown Kingman. Our hours are noon to 6 p.m. every day, unless there's a special event or meeting.
Belles of St. Mary's: And so the Lord has decreed that we live to see another year ... 2012 produced many good and worthy accomplishments, but just think of all we can do with this brand-new never-been used 2013! The Belles will start the New Year's first meeting at 7 p.m. Tuesday. Two major items on the agenda: the famous "Not-So-Silent Auction" will surely generate many giggles and some outright belly guffaws; sometimes our Belles lay aside their ladylike manners and relish the comedic and hilarious antics of "some" of our Belles (No names!). We agreed at the December meeting to continue the season's feasting and host a "finger-lickin' food" fair for January. At this rate, we Belles are going to be renamed the Roly-Poly Belles. So, remember to bring finger-lickin' snacks, tons of treasure and prepare for fun. Let us all start 2013 by borrowing a prayer from St. Francis and St. Clare - Most High Glorious God, enlighten the darkness of my heart and give me true faith, certain hope and perfect love, a sense of knowledge, Lord, that I may carry out your holy and true command. Amen.
