CATHOLIC DAUGHTERS OF THE AMERICAS
Catholic Daughters, Court St. Bernard 339, Indiana, held their annual picnic Aug. 8 in the St. Bernard Parish Social Hall with 46 members and guests in attendance.
Also attending were Father Tom Federline, who gave the invocation, and Letty Calvetti, our immediate past second vice national regent.
The tables were adorned in different festive-colored tablecloths, and a delicious picnic-style buffet dinner was served.
After the dinner, Vice Regent Josephine Valenti read a letter of resignation from Regent Mary Micco, who is very ill. At the September meeting, the new district deputy will install the vice regent as regent. Also, the club will have an election for vice regent. It is the club’s “welcome back” covered dish dinner, so plan to attend and bring your favorite dish and your own table service.
Dates to remember are the covered dish dinner at 6 p.m. Sept. 12; Greensburg Diocesan Committee fall luncheon at 10 a.m. Sept. 14, Bishop Connare Center; fall card party, noon to 3 p.m. Sept. 25, in the Church Social Hall; and reception of new members, Oct. 10.
The program for the evening was a food and kitchen Bingo led by Debbie Davidson. It was enjoyed by all. A special thank you was given to Chairwomen Debbie Davidson, Nancy Taylor and their committee for the delicious dinner. See you at the covered dish dinner at 6 p.m. Sept. 12.
