Chaplain Kevin opened with a prayer for 28 of us this morning.
Amo Kimball said goodbye and is on her way back to Maine.
Phil Albarano spoke to us about the Orange Acres Website. Yesterday, the Resident's Association Board met with a woman who will develop a new and updated website for us. She gave us a demonstration of how it will look and run and we we were all very impressed with the simplicity of it. The cost is $1,800.00 and she will provide help with any problems or "glitches" we may run into for the first 6 months. We should be up and running by the middle of August. Elaine Albarano will be our new webmaster. If you have any questions or suggestions, please contact Phil or Elaine.
There will be no Memorial Day Observation this Saturday as originally scheduled. We will combine this with the Veterans Day Observance. Remember you can always visit the National Cemetery for their ceremony.
Ramona Armstrong is our new Orange Acres Observer Chairperson. She will gather information from different people and set up the format for printing. Thank you Ramona.
Thank you to all who set up the tables, the coffee crew and donut crew.
