Thanks to Barbara Edwards for sending Card Chairman Ann Cayton a get well card during her recent illness. Ann does such a good job getting cards out to those are sick or have had a death in the family. Please remember to let her know when someone is under the weather.

Alice Briley had a great surprise for the Club. Barbara Jones sent us a pineapple upside down cake in appreciation for us stuffing Easter eggs for her at our meeting in March. Our thanks to her; it was delicious.
