REV DOCTOR RALEIGH WATSON 

Watson, Raleigh  02.png

 I ask your prayers for Herb Taylor, who is home as I write this and feeling well, is but scheduled for heart valve replacement in late January.

 Many of our members’ situations remain as previously reported. I ask your prayers for all the following: Ralph Martin is still living at “The Willows.” No visitors are allowed in these establishments – not even family. You may check on him through his wife, Norma, at the home number – 540-877-2819. Don Jones is home, and calls are appreciated. Phone – 540-869-1958. 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. I ask that you keep these and the following in your prayers: Leonard Laconia, Ernest Hill, and Raymond Carter.

Reminder! 2021 is almost here and I was hoping to have been replaced by now! We are still seeking a person to take the Chaplain/Members’ Services committee chairman’s position. My macular degeneration is making my performance more difficult and driving is a bit “iffy.” Please consider it! It may be necessary to restructure the committee and separate the purely Chaplain’s duties from the Members’ Services duties. (As it was before my time!)  If you could take either position or help with either area, please talk with the Commander or me.
