Our Holiday gathering

Thanks to all who brought a dish to pass. We had a moderate turnout, as several members came down with various bugs going around.  Wishing them a speedy recovery.    Khaya’s husband Ed is on the mend and home from the hospital.  He still has a potential surgery to go through so keep them in your thoughts.  Looking forward to the New Year!

Khaya Davidson

Dear members, just want you to know Khaya has advised that her spouse Ed had an event last Tuesday morning that has landed him in the hospital.  He will require future surgery and is also recovering form a fractured sacrum.  Please send Khaya and Ed your prayers and thoughts.  I’m sure they would enjoy hearing from you via cards or emails.
