Chaplain Kevin was back with us this morning and opened our meeting with a prayer

We increased our coffee count this week to 32!  Maybe because Bob and Vicki Hill are back with us, as well as Lois Weaverling.

Thelma Bloesing will be leaving us for several weeks to attend her son and daughter-in-laws 50th Wedding Anniversary, Gary Snyder will be away for 6 weeks and Cheryl and Larry Strohbeck will be heading  back to Illinois.

Happy Birthday was sung to Lois Weaverling and Happy Anniversary was sung to Fred and Lela St. James who are celebrating 57 years and Mike and Fran Foust who are celebrating 10 years!

President Jane says Larry Stine is out of Doctors Hospital and back home with home health coming in.  Please, no visitors at this time.  Hugh Spimney reports that Caroline turner has a ruptured disc and is awaiting an MRI to see if surgery will be necessary.

Reminder:   The pot luck dinner is this Thursday, the 2nd.  The sign up sheet will be taken down today.
                  The pancake breakfast is on the 14th of July.
                   Bob Beauregard has agreed to chair the pizza party and movie to be held Thursday, August 6th.

The Hurricane information going out to all the residents is almost complete.

Ramona Armstrong is our new editor-in-chief for the Orange Acres Newsletter.  When it starts back up, getting information to her on time (by the 15th of the month) will be vital to its printing for the next month.  If you have any new ideas for what should be in the newsletter, please pass them along to Ramona.

Betsy Chace and Ramona Armstrong hosted a wonderful Red Hats luncheon at Ophelia's Pasta House yesterday.  A fun time was had by all!

President Jane thanked June's coffee helpers - Phil Albarano, coffee, Bob Beauregard for donuts, Gary Snyder for his wonderful music and Betsy Chace for her note taking.  July's crew is Bill Jacobsen, coffee, and Mike Foust, donuts.

The meeting closed at 8:30am.

Have a great week and keep smiling!!!

The 50/50 raffle was held today and Marion Holsing won $13.00.

Chaplain Kevin is on vacation this week so Charlene Sherman led 22 of us in prayer.

Reminder:  The Red Hats are going to Ophelia's Pasta House next Monday the 29th.  The last sign up day is Thursday.

The Pot Luck Dinner will be on Thursday, July 2nd.  Be sure to sign up.

Marj Dunn has been confined to her room because of an infection.  She welcomes calls and visitors.
Joy Moore's back is doing much better with less sciatic nerve pain.
Grace Sherry is following doctor's orders to feel better soon but Charlie Parkes is dealing with a lot of issues right now.
Our blessing and good cheer go out to all of those in need.

The information for Hurricane Preparedness should be out to everyone by the end of this week.

There were only 31 present this morning and Chaplain Kevin graced us with prayer.  We also need to pray for Kevin's daughter who is looking for another college to be able to internship at so she can finish her final year.

We welcomed back Bobbie Holden and are saying goodbye to the Delaney's and Kay Gyenes.  Safe travels!

Happy Birthday was sung to Bill Jacobsen but there was no one present for Anniversaries.

Reminder the Red Hats will be going to Ophelia's Pasta House in Nokomis on Monday, June 29th.  It will be a July 4th theme.  Be sure to sign up.  The food is "bene"!

Phil Albarano heard from Barb at the office that there was a shed broken into last Saturday night.  Please be sure to lock your cars and sheds and be very vigilant with what is going on in your immediate area.  With so many people gone for the summer, this is the perfect time for "the bad guys" to come around.  Also the back clubhouse door is still not closing properly.  Be sure it is locked when you leave.

Mary Lou Lira and Jane Finley will be hosting a potluck dinner on Thursday, July 2nd.  The sign-up sheet is on the board.

Hurricane information has been passed around this morning and all present indicated where they will be in case of evacuation.  The same information will be delivered to other homes in the park this week.

There is some information from Ruggeri Insurance on the back table.  There is enough interest to have Jane call and have an agent come out to speak with us in the near future.

The website is progressing nicely.  There is no date yet as to when it will be up and running.

Get well wishes go out to Caroline Turner.  She has back issues and needs our prayers and good cheer.

Our sympathy goes out to Leo and Carol Joncas in the death of their daughter.  Next week, Fran Foust will provide us with more information regarding a donation.

Thank you to Gary for his music, Phil for the coffee and Bob Beauregard for the donuts.

The meeting closed at 8:35am.

Have a warm "sunshiny" week!.
