NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

Please continue to keep our members in mind, and as you hear of someone who is ill, hospitalized – or in any sort of difficulty – Let

Once again, we seem to be stable as far as the sick list is concerned. We have not been informed of any hospitalizations or other changes in status recently. We ask that, when you receive the “Chapter Chatter,” please look at the sick list and advise us if you know of someone who should be included.

Also – it would be thoughtful to call one person (or more) on the list, with a brief phone call. Most of those comrades that our committee members call really appreciate our doing so. It would mean a great deal to know others in the chapter are also thinking of them.

Our members’ service committee continues to do a wonderful job – but remember – we need your information on members in need. We can’t help unless we know who needs 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.

Millard Pippin 540-667-1876.

Don Jones 540-869-1958.

Leonard Laconia 540-667-1716.
