Arizona Rebekah Assembly President Cherie Hart (left) stands with members of Special Blend, a country and bluegrass band, Saturday at the Rebekah Lodge on Butler Avenue. The Lodge held a homecoming ceremony for their president, who lives in Kingman but had just toured the state as part of her duties. The Rebekahs are the female order of an International Order of Odd Fellows, a community service organization started in the 1600s to help the sick and needy. Rebekahs support the fatherless and widows, and cancer, arthritis and vision research. They have a retirement home in Wisconsin, an orphanage in Cambodia and provide scholarships for youth. For more information on the organization, call Hart at (928) 897-8406.
