Thursday's meeting was leaderless. Nevertheless, someone started singing the song at 12:10 promptly. Without assignment, Don Masias led us into the pledge. Pastor Kolmeier gave a most inspirational blessing. Good ole beans and cornbread was enjoyed by all. The normal spinach salad with a wide choice of dressing was offered, and a large plate of an assortment of cookies was available for dessert.

Freedom Week luncheon will be Feb. 17, at the El Jebel Shrine, Willis Case Golf course. Dick Mason gave a Bingo report. One $1,000.00 pickel was turned in Wednesday night.
