…a word from our President!

Hi Fellow Corvetter’s,

I think we had a great meeting last

month hope it wasn't too long. I can't

believe it comes around so fast. The

calendar is filling up fast so if you are

thinking of putting on a run you better

get busy! We had a board meeting the

28th, it was good, the board is slowly

getting dialed in.

Planning a Pre Run for the mystery tour,

we are planning for late September or

first of October will let you know. Keith

and Debbie are helping us plan the run

should be a lot of fun!! That's all for now,

see you all at the next meeting.

Your president, Andy

Debbie Garrison

Mar. 21, 2017

Steve and Lydia weren’t at the Meeting they had to attend a Transportation Event but they

wanted to share with us that they were blessed with their 13 th Grandchild. His name is Henry J.

Garcia and he weighed 6 lbs. 4 ozs. He and another Grandson born earlier this past year;

Teancum Siaki Lakatani weighing in at 8 lbs. will be joining the rest of the grandchildren at

Family gatherings.

Pan Hansen wasn’t with us either-She was on a Carnival Cruise with their Son and his family-she

asked us to keep an eye on Craig for her.

Joyce Kroeker sent us an update an Ed; she thinks he just likes staying in bed and being waited

on. Still in the Care Facility; said soon she’s going to have his mail forwarded! Joyce and Ed

wanted to Thank everyone for their cards and prayers.

Ruthie Danielsen is getting better, now in a regular room and eating a little. Hopefully soon she

will soon be going to Rehab to continue her progress. Many prayers are being sent to Ruthie

and Dick.

Roy had a close call last month. He had a malignant melanoma removed from his left forearm.

He also had a Sentinel Lymph Node removed from his armpit to see if the cancer had spread.

The biopsy was positive so he had a Cat-Scan and a PET scan, luckily it had not. So next month he

will have the remaining Lymph Nodes removed to prevent any chance of the cancer spreading.

Ironically enough, 2 days after Roy’s surgery, he and Mary Ann had to take their dog Shadow to

the Vet to have an open sore removed. It ended up being a rare sweat gland cancer-so both Roy

and Shadow had cancer successfully removed from their left forearm/foreleg at the same time.

Amazing!

And finally, I know you all must be thinking that I was just teasing when I said I was retiring-But I

am! On 03/31/17 I will be officially retired! Keith and I are planning trips to visit Family and

Friends. Hopefully we will finally get to work on painting and finish tiling the house, and our long

awaited trip back to Kentucky to see our Grandchildren!

Thank you All for sharing your news with me-Keep it coming!

Your Sunshine Girl, Debbie G.
