REV DOCTOR RALEIGH WATSON 

Watson, Raleigh  02.png

During these difficult “Covid times,” when we do not see as much of  one another, the word-of-mouth network is not as active. It s much more important to let us know when you learn of a 

comrade with a health problem or other situation. Please call me if you learn of members in need. My phone is 540 955-2183 and you may leave a message. 

Herb Taylor attended our last meeting, and since then has had a heart valve replacement. He got along very well and is feeling very well. Ray Fish is recovering very well from his back procedure and rehab, and was at our recent meeting.

I urge that you call a member and chat during this partial shutdown to “keep the channels open,” as much as you can! If you need someone’s phone number, call me.

 

Reminder! We are still seeking a person to take the Chaplain/Members’ Services committee chairman’s position. Please consider helping out with this committee - even if you feel you cannot take the chairmanship.

Note:  You are reminded of the June 12th funeral service for departed member Richard Clark at 11:00 am at Mt Hebron Cemetery in the Veteran’s section in  Winchester. Richard was a very active Charter member, and we need to honor him by having as many of our members as possible in attendance at his funeral.
