NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

Some of you have been very good about checking on members who have missed a few meetings, making calls or visits on your own –  

  For this, we thank you! It is most helpful and helps prevent our overlooking a comrade in need. I urge that all of you do more of this!

Members of the committee are:  Herb Taylor (540-662-8956), Dick Clark (540-667-9351), Dick Boxwell (540-662-3376), Paul Campbell (540-869-7019), Josh Morimoto (410-370-2216), Bill Jackson (540-722-8777), and Dave Stegmaier (540-662-1331). They do a marvelous job in keeping up with their assigned lists of individual members, but we need your help! If you need phone numbers, our committee or the secretary can help you. The secretary can furnish a complete up-to-date roster if you need one. He sends it via email from time-to-time.

Some our comrades who would appreciate a call are:                                       

Millard Pippin –  540-667-1876           

Don Jones – 540-869-1958             Leonard Laconia – 540-667-1716 

Charles Hoak – 540-533-1187 (Lea’s cell) Ollie “Buck” Thompson – 540-869-4496
