American Legion Post 14: A big thank you to everyone who defied Mother Nature and came to the Post for breakfast last Saturday. We also appreciate your patience and understanding about our logistical issues. Our next breakfast will be on Cinco de Mayo; the menu will go with the theme. Tickets for a tri-tip dinner on May 19 are now available at the Post for $8 apiece. Proceeds from both the breakfast and the dinner will go toward our kitchen renovation. Our hall is available for private parties; please call 753-3555 for additional information. Post 14 is on the corner of Third and Oak in downtown Kingman. Our regular hours are noon to 6 p.m. every day, but we're flexible for events.
Belles of St. Mary's: The Easter-egg-dye not quite faded from Belles' finger tips and already the Belles have pushed up their shirt sleeves and settled down to the business at hand - elections. On a level equal to, if not higher than, national, state or city elections, we Belles have once again selected our leadership: Our President Marietta Green will continue at the helm; newcomer Norma Feilen will serve as vice president; our most competent secretary Chris Cocking will carry on; and the guardian of our treasury continues to be Charlene Duffy. Once this matter was appropriately dispatched, we settled down to the delicacies provided by co-hostesses Betty S. and Betty M. During this finger-licking feast we sand a happy 16th birthday to Carla Selena Moreno. Lest we forget, we have another row for our garden: Row four, a row of turnips: Turnip for meetings, Turnip for service, and Turnip to help one another. (Isn't this fun?) Back to business - Betty S., Charlene D. and Ruby D. all volunteered to serve at the funeral reception for one of our own, Carol De Long; this is what we are all about. We serve. So, join us in doing the Lord's work. There are many opportunities and we can invent more! We meet every second Tuesday at 7 p.m. in the Parish Center. May 8 is our annual potluck meeting; gathering time is 6 p.m. All are welcome.
