Thanks for taking the time to return my call yesterday and to get to share
a few minutes with one another . As I shared with you I am in agreement of
the use of the $50.00 from our chapter , I saw Marianne right afterwards and
she shared she had sent you an email back in reply to yours. She xpressed
she would not be albe to do anything o nthe 7th with the chapter as she has
an other commitment. As for me for that day or any day right now I just have
to take it moment by moment. As we shared we all are so bausy with our lifes
, I think the older I get the fast it sems to go by or is it the slower I
get , what ever , it is whatever it is . I am looking to hear about one
ortwo jobs I am hoping to get called upon for services real soon . So can't
say for sure if I will be able to attend any meetings , but am interested in
keeping myself informed of what is taking palce wit hthe chapter as you
never know when you will run into someonethat maybe could use info about NFB
Thanks Gil for your leadership to the Chapter .
Nice to hear from you and surprised to here of your health issues . Did
Lenny tell you have stopped by a couple of times when in the area He let me
know you were working over the hospital , the last time I stopped by. You
are in my prayers and thoughts and believing with you for good news,
Have you any idea for a fundraiser as you mentioned we might be able to do
something to help Brandon . What about a cookie walk with the holidays
coming we could maybe do a bakesale or cookie walk .Or some type of raffle
It would be nice to see us all come together again for support to
oneanother and for others ,especially expand our group with mew members.
Nice to hear of Betta , do you have a curent emai lor phone number to
reach her by , would love to be in touch with her .
I would be open to help out ,so keep me posted .
