WHEN LAST WE MET
If you missed the January meeting, you missed some wonderful
pea soup. A sing along was led by Ted Johnson and Herb Melendy. The
children went to a separate room to sand and begin painting dala horses
that were provided by Bob Olson.
It is with deep regret that we heard of the passing of
Julia Herman. Julia and her sister, Ruth, have been loyal members
of the club for many years. Julia will be missed by all.
Elva Wilson was hospitalized this past month. She came
home from the hospital this past Thursday, minus a kidney, but otherwise
pretty intact. We hope she is doing better now.
Gladys and Elva’s brother, Howard Vik, is visiting from
Jamestown, NY. They spent 3 days in Virginia Beach when St. Timothy’s
celebrated it’s 43rd anniversary. He is spending 6 weeks with Gladys before
she goes back to NY with him for a few weeks. Elva and Albert Giordano
have been under the weather with the flu for the past few
weeks. Hope everyone is recovering.
Well, we were alittle messy but we sure did have fun.
Thank goodness, Bob Olson donated lab coats for the kids to wear! Leila
was really impressive, she just may grow up to be a famous artist. Better
buy her art work now while we can still afford it. Our dala horses have
their red paint on them, this next meeting, the children will do the detail
painting to finish their horses so make sure that they are
wearing clothing that it won’t hurt to have some paint
