Marauders !
Had a note from Carl Fry and a call from Kathy Kerls this afternoon to inform us that our dear friend Chuck
had some heart surgery yesterday.  He is at St Francis but no visitors for now.  But please keep him and family
in your thoughts and prayers and perhaps a call or text to Chuck would lift his spirits and brighten his days. And
cards are always a great way to support him too.  We will keep you posted but for now, please be praying for him.
Also - Happy Memorial Day to everyone and especially all of our Veterans.  We appreciate you and thank you for your
service and for all those who are serving around the world.
And - with all the rain and bad weather - please remember those who are having "water" issues in their homes and/or businesses.
We are one of those with water in the basement - so like we always do - let's remember one another and keep those prayers
going.
Thanks to all of you and thanks for being such a great club !
Cheryl
