The month of May began with mild and cooler weather. Heavy rains moved in during “Apple Blossom” week and threatened to wash out the Firemans’ parade.

  However, Jack Kronenberger said “We will Parade” and parted the clouds. The skies cleared just in time, and all went well. See Pages 4-5 for the picture story.

 !!!! Remember !!!! Save the Date:

    July 23rd.   CHAPTER PICNIC

         @ Jim  Barnett Park.

Again, things have been quite stable for a while. Doug Purnell was in the hospital the early part of May with pneumonia, and is home now, but says he must get his strength back.

 Doug is in good spirits, but a phone call to him would be thoughtful. Bud Robertson is pretty much confined to his home, with oxygen full time and some other medical problems. Bud always seems to be upbeat and appreciates a short phone chat.

 Here are some of our comrades who are on our current concerns list, who would really appreciate a call – even a short one. Please call one of these:
