Special notice to the food committee (scott and kate) who valiantly ensured that we had no excuse for being hungry, and to Joan of Arc for keeping us all dry with her great tarp!!!!

Reminder the cleanup day at Holliday Cemetary is 10 AM this saturday (5/26). Also, they are holding a Memorial Day Re-enactment Observance at the cemetary on Monday at 1PM. Our very own Michael is one of the soldiers!!! The cemetary is downtown behind the public debt credit union-the new one. Near the DOH offices.
Our next meeting will be Thursday June 7 at El Ranchero, 7 pm. See you then! Hopefully Julie can give us some final totals for our fund raising efforts, and you'll definitely want to be there for special details regarding our plans for the following friday night, june 8!!!
And finally, this chance to try to help out a local woman who's been through a horribly difficult time recently. Basic construction type work will be going on at 1126 Market St, with ample parking in the Medical Center lot beside his house, or at the new Post Office.. The work schedule for this week is Tuesday, Thursday & Friday evenings, 6 to 8 PM, Saturday, 10 AM - 2 PM. Contact Jon Six to sign up or for more information at 422-6727, or Becky Dines at 489-9118.
Many of you are probably unaware of the difficult plight of 67 year old Mary Hutchins. Mary was brutally raped, then, while still recovering from her injuries, lost her Avery St. home to fire (2/18/01). Mary was generously taken in by her friend and neighbor Jon Six. Jon has been making upgrades to a garage behind his house to make an apartment for Mary. Jon says Mary is fiercely independent and wishes to live alone. However, she likes the idea of being close to Jon's house; the proximity helping her feel more secure. Not a carpenter, Jon has relied on the skills of others to recondition the small garage. The electric/wiring is now complete, a partition is up to make a bathroom, drywall and finishing to living/dining & combined bedroom is complete, and Jon's friends from Simonton Windows have donated a beautiful window for the bath.
There's lots of work to be done, so all available hands would be appreciated!!!
that's it! have a Safe Memorial Day Weekend!
