I belong to a church group that go to an assisted living facility every Friday and need access to some clean jokes to help us entertain. We usually have a talk about the Bible, a little singing and then some "jokes" or stories to lift their spirits. I would love some suggestions as to where to locate this sort of item, even books or whatever. Thanks to all and God Bless us all.

Reader's Digest has quite a few regular features - one is military themed and the others are more general. But they are all clean and very funny.

Betty, go to the website: crochetnmore.com They send out newsletters twice a month about crocheting but at the end of the newsletter there's always a page of clean and very funny jokes. On the website just go to the section near the bottom that says Archives of Newsletters. There you'll find the newletters dating back about 8 years and there are jokes with each one. Hope you enjoy.

There's a book called Awesome Book of Heavenly Humor by Bob Phillips. You should be able to get this from Amazon.com or Family Christian Stores.

I belong to a rural, non profit organization called the Grange. We are faith and family based. I had to find good clean jokes for our Christmas party. I found many good ones by doing an internet search. I used MSN, but any search engine should be able to help you find what you need. You'll be surprised at the many church-based sites that offer jokes.
