Rev. Raleigh Watson

Bill Jackson fell in early January, resulting in a fractured hip. At the time of this writing, Bill is recov-ering in the medical

unit at Westminster-Canterbury. He says that he is doing well, but progress is slow. He is scheduled to return home later this week, Home Phone – 540-722-8777.


Dale Thompson is now with his son and daughter-in-law. To check on him, it is best to call his daughter-in-law Christina, at 540-837-2144. Dale’s phone has been “iffy” for some time. They have arranged a Post Office Box for Dale, and I urge that we send cards from time to time to  P.O. Box #135, White Post, VA. 22663.


Our Committee needs a few more volunteer members. A couple of our people have found themselves on the receiving end of our services this past year, leaving us a little bit short. If you can make a call, or visit from time to time, please consider becoming part of the Member’s Service committee. We need you !! Contact me if you are interested in helping us.


Here are some of our comrades who are on the sick list, and would appreciate a call or visit from any of you. You do not have to be on the Committee to do this.
