NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

Every time I call one of our homebound comrades, I hear how much he appreciates the call and how much the camaraderie of our organization means to him.

Try it yourself and you will give a lift to someone – and you, too, will receive a boost! If you can find a few minutes for a visit, try to do that also! These comrades really miss being with the group!

As always, I ask that you advise me or any of our officers if you learn of someone who should be on our concerns list. We can’t help if we don’t know it is needed. This is especially important if someone is in the hospital. I like to visit those, if possible. Please help by keeping us informed!

These are a few of those who are on our current concerns list and would really appreciate a call – even a short one. Please call one of these:

Millard Pippin –       home – 540-667-1876

Charles Boyce –         cell – 304-263-0811

John Moreland –     home-  540-550-8199

Leonard Laconia –  home - 540-667-1716

Don Jones –            home – 540-869-1958

Bud Robertson –        cell – 540-877-9132
