News and Notes

  Corrine: I went to see my sisters. My sister Nancy had a college reunion and I went along. Soon Don and I will drive to Butte, Montana to see Brett. We are hoping to find her much improved.

  June: June will be gone Oct. 20 - 22 to attend a UU Women's Conference in Kerrville. She will be going with a friend, Karen McSerivis, who lives in San Angelo.

  David: David's son Eric, age 53, is hiking the Muir Trail in the Sierra Nevada mountains. It goes from Whitney Portal 210 miles to Yosemite Valley along the crest of the Sierra. He has arranged a very light pack for himself, and plans to hike 18 miles per day. That is sort of running. When his dad hiked part of this trail he had a heavy pack and 6 miles per day was plenty. After Eric does that, he will move to a city 30 miles north of New York City to take a new job. This is obviously a major change.  It is not clear whether his wife will eventually move there with him.
