KULPMONT - Members of the Holy Name Society of Holy Angels Parish attended Mass March 9 and, as a body, received holy communion.

The monthly meeting was held after Mass in the activity center. It was called to order by society president Charles Mannello. The Rev. Andrew Stahmer led the group in opening prayer, and Robert Daniels led the recitation of the Pledge of Allegiance.

Stahmer reported on the painting inside Holy Angels and said refurbishment of the stations of the cross should be completed by the end of March. The cost to refurbish the stations of the cross is $450 each. The society voted to sponsor one station, and Mannello said he, too, will sponsor the cost of one.

Stahmer also spoke of several projects to be completed.

Daniels read the previous meeting's minutes and, with no omissions or corrections, they were approved. The treasurer's report was given.

A spaghetti dinner to be held from 11 a.m to 3 p.m. April 13 was discussed. Cost is $8 for adults and $5 for children 12 years and younger. Anyone wishing to take a meal away is asked to bring a container.

For the first time, scratch-made wedding soup will be included in the dinner. Jeff Kurleski and his father, Joe, who began the project, will lead the same group in making the homestyle meatballs, homemade sauce and Italian bread.

Jerry Buchinski was the first to donate in the past for startup expenses for the spaghetti dinner, after which other members donated during society meetings.

Mannello spoke of the fish dinner held March 7, the first of the Lenten season. He reiterated what Stahmer said about the cost of fish and said donations were made toward the fish at a cost exceeding $325. Daniels motioned the society pay the cost for one week; it was seconded and approved by the group.

Edward Wojcik and Buchinski were thanked for preparing the coffee and donuts.

Mannello remarked about the cooperation helping Holy Name in its fundraising and any project in which the group is involved.
