Bingo was down some this week, with only 136 players. The good news is that they were spending money and we were able to sell seven special games and brought in over $600 in the kitchen.
Ben Travelos brought his father, John, and his fiancee, Ali Hultgren, to breakfast this morning for a wonderful breakfast prepared by Linda Knierim, Kristi Savage-Clarke, and Lena Long, covering for Carole Iles.
Our speaker this morning was Louise Martin, who gave us a quick overview of St. Patrick. Patrick was born in the fifth century, was kidnapped at age 16 years old by Irish pirates, escaped back to England long enough to receive training as a cleric, and then returned to Ireland to introduce the Irish to Christianity. He died on Mar. 17, which is now celebrated as his official saint day.
Approximately a third of the population of the United States has Irish roots, making it the second most prominent ethnicity after German.
Once Louise was finished speaking, our guest drew for the Attendance drawing.
There is a swimming pool clean-up scheduled for Apr. 14th, in conjunction with the Mizzou Caring for Columbia Student Service Project.
Safety of Wheels will be May 5th this year at our building. Please put it on your calendar!
