In the meantime, the next events on our calendar will be the upcoming County Fairs in Frederick County, Clarke County and Shenandoah County.  Please plan to take part in the fun and join us at our booth at these fairs.

CHAPLAIN's CORNER

REV DOCTOR RALEIGH WATSON 

Watson, Raleigh  02.png

As mentioned at the July meeting, Dick Boxwell had just undergone surgery for kidney stones. He is doing well, feeling well, and appointed for a routine follow-up visit in a month or so.

At the moment, those on our most recent concerns lists - Herb Taylor and Narce Caliva - are doing well, but please keep those and all our people on your personal prayer lists.

Reminder: During these difficult “Covid times,” when many of us are still not going out very much, we do not see as much of one another. The word-of-mouth network is not highly active. It is much more important to let us know when you learn of a comrade with a health problem or other situation. Please all me if you learn of members in need. My phone is 540 955-2183, and you may leave a message.
