ATLAS - President Cindy Saukitis opened the monthly meeting of the Carmelite 50-Plus Club in January, and greeted the seven members and officers who attended. The group recited the Pledge of Allegiance, the Senior Adult Ministry prayer and St. Mother Pauline's prayer. They sang the 50-Plus song and a verse of "America."

The group said a prayer for the deceased and sick members of the club and for the safety of our troops, and a special prayer for Tina Connor's sister and brother-in-law.

Saukitis gave a short report on last month's meeting, the Christmas party, due to secretary Maria Kaminski being absent. Albert Visitainer gave the treasurer's report, which was approved on a motion by Arlene Terry and seconded by Connor and made available for audit.

All present paid their dues for the year. The 50/50 drawings were won by Terry and Kaminski.

The next meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13, at Village Towne Restaurant. Jean Dunkelberger gave money for next month's dessert.

On a motion by Dunkelberger, seconded by Evelyn Milewski, the meeting was adjourned and the members played bingo.
