Book Review:
    Betrayal by John Lescroart
When Dismas Hardy agrees to clean up the caseload of recently disappeared attorney Charlie Bowen,
he thinks it will be easy. But one of the cases if far from small-time- the sensational clash between
National Guard reservist Evan Scholler and an ex-Navy SEAL and private contractor named Ron Nolan.
Two rapid-fire events in Iraq conspired to bring the men into fatal conflict.

    Crossroads by Belva Plain
The owner of New England glassworks company, widow Cassie Wright struggles to raise her surviving
child, Gwen, in the face of unbearable tragedy, but as Gwen blossoms into an independent young
woman, dissention drives the two apart, until Gwen has her own child, a little girl who reunites the
estranged family.

Legion Building Committee

The meeting was called to order at 10:05am by President Jim Eide. It was reported that the Redfield
Development Corporation made a donation of $2,000 to the building fund.

The building design committee has examined several buildings for the initial cost to build, and also the
annual cost to maintain. They have nearly decided on the size to be 70’ x 80’. They have floor plans
for the buildings they have viewed. The plans are to be a steel frame building, with a 4 foot brick on
the north and east sides.

Plans were made to have the Ames Environmental Company to examine the property for environmental
concerns. The Legion has made an offer to buy the building from JR Wasson. Nothing has been to
finalize the transaction yet. The Legion has a bid for the demolition of the building, when and if they
get the purchase.

Julie Bailey has agreed to write some grants to help with the project. She has several names of
organizations to apply for.

We also appointed a fund raising team to work on projects. Next meeting will be April 18th at 10:00
am at the City Hall. Everyone is invited to attend any meeting.
