Lakes Country Club. It is shaping up to be a fantastic year. The fi rst part of the season will be dedicated to learning and polishing our Christmas music with a calendar of Christmas performances in December at the Italian American Club, St. Stevens Church and caroling at the senior residences in the area. A January performance for the Lions Club has also been scheduled. Doreen Hansen will be going into her seventh year as director of the Chordaires chorus.

Our 33rd annual Spring Show is already scheduled for Friday, April 12, 2013 and will be held at the Oakwood Country Club. There will be two performances, one at 3:00 p.m. and one at 7:00 p.m. The show will again be a benefi t and will include as special guests The Treblemakers of Chandler High School with a return performance (at the request of our last spring audiences) of Ms. Cellaneous, the fabulous women’s quartet who were guests at last year’s show. The theme for our upcoming spring show will be Hats Off to America which will be a patriotic spectacular show. If you are a woman who likes to sing, socialize and have fun we would welcome you to join us for the new season. 

Ladies Auxiliary VFW Post 8053

Sandra Iosue Mea culpa, mea culpa. In the last article

about the Auxiliary 8053 awards at the Department Convention, I made an error in naming Ellen Bond chairman of the Voice of Democracy and Patriot’s Pen scholarship programs. The actual

chairman was

Leonora Nelson, who with her husband Gene worked tirelessly with the schools and the students to make this a very successful program. Did you know that the VFW and

Ladies Auxiliary have many scholarship opportunities available? Some are open and some are restricted. The following are the open scholarships, which means anyone

can enter. Voice of Democracy. This is an oral

essay on the subject “Is Our Constitution Still Relevant?” This
