Published: Wednesday, March 5, 2014 at 10:01 AM.

Yes, folks, it’s time to spring forward. So, when you get home Saturday night, March 8, from the dinner dance or just out on the town, set your clocks ahead one hour and check those batteries in your smoke alarms.

Don’t forget this weekend is Camp Gordon Johnston Days. Veterans will register today at the World War II museum, 1001 Grey Avenue in Carrabelle. Friday night March 7, starting at 6 p.m. is the welcoming reception at Camp Gordon Johnston American Legion Post 82, 2316 Oak Street, in Lanark Village. The 6 p.m. reception will feature a low country boil. All World War II vets, active duty troops, Legionnaires, Sons, Auxiliary and their spouses are invited to attend. There is no charge for this event; members are encouraged to bring a dish to share.

On Saturday March 8, you can enjoy another great breakfast and great service at the Curfew Lodge 108 NW First Ave. in Carrabelle. There is a donation of $6 required. After you have enjoyed your breakfast, it’s off to the big parade. Step-off at 10:45 a.m.

On Wednesday March 12, more fun. The members of the Lanark Village Golf Club will have bingo at Chillas Hall. Doors open at 6 p.m. and I will start calling at 6:30 p.m. Coffee, soft drinks and cookies available. Come on down and enjoy the evening and raise your hand if you’re sure.

Had another great crowd at the First Saturday breakfast last Saturday. Chillas Hall was wall-to-wall. We would like to thank you for your support and hope to see you Saturday, April 5. I would like to thank all of our faithful volunteers.

On Friday, March 14, we will resume hamburgers and chips. Orders taken after 5 p.m. Eat-in or take-out. Just call American Legion Post 82 at 697-9998 to place your order. Yum! Yum! A donation of $6 is required.

On Saturday March 15, you can start out your day with a full breakfast at the Lanark Village Boat Club. Doors open at 9 a.m. The members will prepare and serve pancakes/French toast, bacon/sausage, eggs, juice and coffee. All for a donation of $5.
