Eureka Crime Watch will hold its regular monthly meeting at 1:30 p.m. at the Eureka United Methodist Church. Last minute staff problems at Guardian Healthcare prevented Gail Barlow’s visit in February, but she assures us she will be at this meeting. Changes are in the wind so don’t miss this informative meeting. Refreshments will be served.

The Finance Committee of Kinsloe House will hold a recipe tasting luncheon. The Chairpersons of the Finance Committee are Lynda Green, Linda Denbow, and Lynda Housley. Recipes from the new 75th Anniversary cookbook will be prepared for members to sample, and the Finance Committee will be pre-selling the new cookbooks so that members will be sure to get one of the first ones hot off the press.
