July 9, 2013, LUNCH BUNCH


Rain, rain, go away!  We had pop-up rain everywhere today, especially on the way from Zanesville back to Westerville, OH.  But we still had 24 classmates present!


Jim Burkhart told us that the roof on their church in Zanesville collapsed yesterday at Grace United Methodist.  They had a flat roof that was holding a lot of water.  Thank goodness no one was in the church at the time it collapsed, and the janitor found it the next morning.


Ruthann Coulson is doing well after her hysterectomy.


Gerald was unable to attend today since he had a sleep study Monday evening/Tuesday morning, and he was too tired to attend. 


Gwen was able to give this report on Marty Tanner.  She is still going to get chemo every Tuesday, and this last Tuesday her tumor count was very low, only 29!  That is very good news since they had been told the chemo had stopped working.  They are going to run the test over again to make certain it is not a false/positive.  The doctor has told her he has other alternatives to treat her also. 


Carolyn Waite is doing well since her back surgery.  She went to Sterling Suites after her surgery.  She said the recovery is long, going slowly, but she is getting better.


Sue Gause will have a partial knee replacement on August 5.


Nancy Cohen Fawcett came to the lunch today while her husband, Harold, was having his four hour kidney dialysis.  She needs to get a total knee replacement and the doctor told her Harold and she both could stay at Sterling Suites for the care they both need after her surgery.  They will take Harold for his dialysis.


We are sending positive thoughts to all of our classmates above and wish them well.


The reunion committee is meeting this Thursday at the VFW at 1 PM.  The mini-reunion will be held on Saturday, October 12 at the VFW with the usual Friday night get together on the 11th.  So please mark your calendar.  Complete details and the registration form will be coming soon by mail.


I hope to see all of you at our next lunch on Tuesday, August 13 at the VFW at 11:30.
