There was a large crowd to the Community Care lunch on Tuesday, quite a number were from our Sandford congregation. The guest speaker who was from the Lions Club, spoke on the program they now run, about keeping all your family and medical info regarding health problems, medication etc. in a bottle and keeping that in your fridge, so in the case of an emergency, First Responders can find it readily.
Happy birthday was sung to Audrey Adams as well as several others. One other I must mention is Olive Wilson Evans, who lived across the road from me growing up and who was my one, and probably only, baby sitter. Her family had a large party at Testa for her, on Sunday. It had to be a large party, because she has a very large family!
On Tuesday evening, the Official Board met at Zephyr, where the following months were planned out and programs arranged, for the summer and into fall events.
