President’s Message

President…Marlene Hruby

If you would like to go to the January 19 luncheon, please call Bette right away. We must give a count on Friday, Jan. 8 but we can add some if necessary. We will be honoring four members who were at the very first meeting! We also need two more singers to join a small choir. How’s your voice? Call me if you’d  like to participate for a couple song parodies. It’s been quite a holiday season with accidents, operations, and sickness everywhere. Let’s hope things improve soon. Please get more involved in 2016. We need a temporary Treasure Chest manager (see article on Page 3) and Carole needs an assistant for the Opportunity Drawing. We need refreshment donors and servers. No one has signed up for February and March, so if you want coffee and goodies you need to call Ken Schieck and volunteer. We can always use new committee members. It’s time for you to get more involved with your chapter and it’s fun too!

Community Service

Community Service…Sheila Gold

Some of you are downsizing and I have a book that may be of interest to you. It’s “The Homeowner’s Journal.  What I Did and When I Did It” by Colleen Jenkins published by Blue Sky Marketing, Inc. in St. Paul,  MN.  As the title suggests, it contains different sections on rooms, wall coverings, insulation, etc.  It also gives suggestions on how to file papers and a tax worksheet.  It’s probably a good idea to fill it out at your leisure rather than when you decide to move! I also have one called NETBOOK which contains sections for your email addresses.  The only indication of publisher is Mouse Network.

Sunshine

Sunshine…Irene Elardo

The following cards were mailed: Sympathy to K.C. Whitcomb, former Campbell Senior Services Supervisor; Get Well to Polly Vitkovitch and Dominic Donato; Thinking of You to Edna Whitlock.
