NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

As this strange “semi-quarantine” situation continues, we are not able to meet, to visit our members in hospitals or nursing homes

 or attend any activities as a group. During this time, perhaps we can make use of the telephone to keep up some contact with our comrades. Please try to do that. Here is an update on some of our members: Ralph Martin is at “The Willows,” and settled in rather well. No visitors are allowed in these establishments – not even family. You may check on him through his wife, Norma, at the home number. (below) Don Jones has returned home from Envoy rehab. Calls are appreciated.

Phone calls to  Charles Boyce would be welcome. Charles Boyce is at the VA Hospital in Martinsburg, WVA. His room number is 5th Floor, Ward B, Room 340. You may call him at 304-263-0811, Ext 2952.  This will take you to the nursing station in Ward B who will connect you to Charles.

 

Some of our comrades who would appreciate a call or visit are:

Millard Pippin – phone – 540-667-1876

Don Jones – phone – 540-869-1958

Leonard Laconia – 540-667-1716

Ralph Martin – 540-877-2819

Other than the Corona-virus, there is not much KWVA news this month. Therefore, the format has changed slightly.

Welcome to New Members.

During the month of April, we sadly lost one member, Muriel Simanek. On the bright side, we welcome new members Douglass Hall, (Referred by Raleigh Watson.) and Life member Gene Ramey has joined  the Chapter from Oakland, CA.. (Referred by Narce Caliva.)
