Even though it rained we had 41 people at the picnic. Renee Hobbs came with games and a sing-along contest that was well sung by all. MaryLou Zdanovich prepared sand pails filled with “goodies” and Wanda got a birthday cake!
Remember all those at home alone who bravely meet the new day.
Helena Hall passed away on 8/1/2011 after a long battle with cancer. She served as our president in 2010 and resigned only when her treatments pre-vented her from continu-ing in office. She was an inspiration to all of us, and lifted our spirits with her ever-friendly smile. Her courage gave many of us the courage to face our own battles. Thank you, Helena, for your in-spiration. Rest in peace.
