Personal Notes

Congratulation to Ray McAllister who is celebrating his 80th birthday on Monday, March 22.

We would like to say thank you to our church family. We appreciated all the phone calls, emails, cards, messages, meals and the prayer shawls given to us. All these gestures have helped us with the passing of our brother Bruce.  Thanks again . Sharon Leis & Mark and Sandy Scheerer
