NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN
Rev. Raleigh Watson
Two of our members are facing surgery soon, and I ask that you keep them in your prayers – Don Everhart and Wayne Strother.
Both have faced a variety of medical challenges and both have maintained excellent spirits. We hope things will soon improve for both!
Often, one of you will mention to me that one of our comrades has missed a meeting or two and I will call to check on him. I may find that all is OK, or that some minor problem had occurred – but I always feel the call is appreciated very much! We have a great deal of camaraderie in our organization and our members like to know we are thinking of them. We appreciate your help in this – tell us or make a call yourself to someone you miss at a meeting – or hear is in need – and then tell us what you find.
Some our comrades who would appreciate a call are:
Millard Pippin – home phone – 540-667-1876
Don Jones – home phone – 540-869-1958
Leonard Laconia – 540-667-1716
Ollie “Buck” Thompson – 540-869-4496
Charles Hoak is always glad to have visitors, but call first to see if convenient – 540-533-1187 (Lea’s cell)
