Rev. Raleigh Watson

Once again, I must open my comments with a sad note – one of the original and most faithful members of Chapter 313, Dale Thomp-son died on March 11th.

 Many of us attended his service on March 19th, followed by burial with military honors. We shall miss Dale’s smiling face and we pray for repose of his soul and for his family.

J. Jones is again receiving radiation treatments – he sends his warmest greetings to all of us. Please keep J. in your prayers as he faces this latest series of treatments.


John Shenk underwent a hip replacement earlier this month and has been recovering at Orchard Ridge rehab facility. He is scheduled to return to his home in Stephens City on March 27th, and would be happy to have visits from those of you who could do so. Address is 101 Raven Rd, Stephens City. Ph. 540-508-2240. 

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.
