News and Notes

  June:  Cliff and June will be in Mason Sat. & Sun. Jan. 13-14 for a music concert at the Odeon Theater. Then they will be flying to Ft. Lauderdale on Thursday Jan. 18. On Jan. 19 they will fly to Barbados and sail out on Jan. 21 for one week. They will be cruising in the eastern Caribbean on a sailing ship. They should return home late on Jan. 28. They will be back at church Feb.4, in time for Cliff to present a program.


David:  Good news! David's PSA number is stable.

 Bad news: we had a clogged sewer line, failed internet service, a failing cell phone battery, dirty contacts that prevented the guest room furnace from working, and a clogged kitchen sink drain.

 Even worse news:  The mother of  husband Chris of David's daughter Karen has metastatic cancer. She presently is in Beijing, China, and the family has flown to Beijing to comfort her. Kids Adrian and Alanna got visas in only one day. Evidently little can be done to fight it.

            Read the new book by Van Jones: "Beyond the Messy Truth".

            Lois is doing all right at present.

  Bear: If anyone wants to contact Megan Siepak, here are her addresses:

            email:               jessy8celeste@gmail.com

              US mail:          Box 17


                                    735 Anderson Hill Rd.

                                    Purchase, NY  10577-1499

 Even better, Megan was home and at church on Sun. Jan. 7. It was so great to see and hug her! Megan's school is just a short distance from the village near Sleepy Hollow where my son Eric now lives and works, so they should be able to talk and possibly meet.

    Find copies of the up-dated Membership roster on the credenza by the front door.
