|Dinner attendees at the Men's Club Fish Bake|
On Valentine's Day, members,spouses, dates, and friends met for a dinner prepared and served by the staff of Johnna's at the Desoto Club. After dinner, Program Director Buddy Dixon led a program celebrating Valentine Day. All couples entered their number of years of marriage on slips of paper, which were then tabulated, and guesses were made by attendees as to the total number of years of marriage for the group. Two winners recieved bottles of wine donated by Cork & Bottle liquor store. The total number of years was over 1900 years for the 46 couples attending. Buddy then called on four differant members to sing a love song each to their spouse. A good time was had by all.

The Sacred Heart Men's Club meeting on January 10, 2017 was attended by almost 80 members and guests. A barbeque dinner was served by Chef Johnna's. After dinner, Program Director Buddy Dixon introduced HSV Chief of Police Ricky Middleton who discussed safety in the Village. He pointed out that HSV was safer than any of the similar sized cities in the area. He also commented on the differance in policing in HSV, in that many of the calls they get for help (can't open doors, barking dogs, etc.) don't get answered in bigger cities but they are here. He took several questions about gun carry laws and gate security. See the meeting minutes posted on the website for more details on the meeting.
