NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

Dick Boxwell continues to recover at home – but was able to be with us at our last meeting. By the time this reaches you, he will have completed his radiation treatments.   

   We were happy also, to have J. Jones with us at that meeting. Both of these comrades are true inspirations. Charles Hoak continues with therapy at home. A visit or call to any of these would be appreciated. Also on our concerns list is Charles Boyce. He has moved from his home in Capon Bridge, WV. to Charlotte Hall Veterans Home, 29449 Charlotte Hall Road, Charlotte Hall, MD 20622.

You can reach him by phone at 301-884-8171. Press Option # 1, then 661#.  It is a direct line to his room. Please give him a call.

Donald Jones' wife, Doris, has been in the hospital, but home now. A phone call to Don would be thoughtful, Phone is 540-869-1958.

Please consider a call or visit to any of those on our sick list – or just to any comrade who has missed a meeting or two, or perhaps someone you haven't seen for a while. If you run across someone in need – please let me or one of the officers know about it!
