January 22, 2011 Dave Ramsey's "Financial Peace University" Mark Weber, Senior Minister of Mr. Pulaski's First Christian Church, announced the church will host Dave Ramsey's "Finan- cial Peace University", beginning Jan 31. Sessions are from 6:-8: p.m. in the church's Family Life Center. Dave Ramsey and his practical, whimsical style has swept across the nation. In a humorous manner, Dave offers help to people with their financial realities. Information is also included directing folks in using their finances the way God would have them do. After learning a few of his valuable informa- tional tips, attendees usually end up in much better shape financially than they ever thought possible. Besides that, they have a great time as they learn. Participants in the FPU program not only grasp the truth about finan- cial peace, but learn how to apply Dave's insights to daily living as well. If you are interested in this series of 13 video presenta- tions ending April 25, call the church office at 217/792- 5417, or visit the church web- site at You'll gain valuable and timely information about successful financing for you and your family.

Great cardio-work- out and no one had to go the gym for the exercise. Times Photo Topper Red Hatters: On The Go It was all about "hati- tudes" as our Red Hat group gathered at Buff's Tuesday night, January 11, for our first dinner meeting of the new year. Though it was a snowy, blustery evening, we enjoyed the warmth and friendliness of Buff's. Certainly, Buff's is well known in the area for great meals and great wait staff. Thanks to Ashley for taking care of us for the evening. Though quite btisy, she did an excellent job, always wearing a smile. Co-hostesses Pat Strau- mann and Kathy Voile had invited" Fancy Hats Galore" for a 35-minute program featuring their gorgeous hat concoctions skillfully made and lovingly discussed in their presentation. The owners, Carol Meyer and Marie Bond, cousins, design and sew these hats in their home workshops. They delivered an inter- esting story .on the history of hats. Hats of all shapes and sizes were modeled by Mikela Meyer, Carol's granddaughter, who was appropriately clad in formal attire to enhance the beauty of each hat demonstrated. Hattery was adorned in feathers, beads, silks, etc., in great variety. The ladies make customized hats for any occasion and strive patiently to please each person who orders from them. Covering years 1836 to present, there were cro- cheted caps, elegant hats of days past, including hats for horseback riding, sailing hats for trips on the water, bonnets, and others too numerous to mention. As Carol told me, "...and there's a lot more home just like 'em!" We were overwhelmed at the amount of time and effort that went into each beloved and reasonably priced creation. Since Mt. Pulaski will be celebrating its 175th year in 2011, this would be an ideal time to talk to them about a special hat you might have in mind to wear during the celebration of Mt. Pulaski's beginnings. And guess what? They had a gorgeous bright red hat in their collection! We had fun asking questions, and trying on hats during the dining period. If you have any questions you may call Carol at 792-3271 or Marie at 674-3367. Our next luncheon- meeting will be held at the Country Cafe in downtown Latham Tuesday, February 15, at noon. Please confirm your reservation by calling Phyllis Hawk, 792-5225,. or Madonna Boyle at 674- 3709 before February 13th. Guests are always welcome. See you then.
