We had a great lunch yesterday at Italian Garden. A new sister, Sandy, joined our group. Sandy served in the Air Force for 30 years, as a nurse!


Several requests were made to coordinate another order of our Lady Veteran face masks. Here is a link to order, if you’d like. All orders must be made by Friday, 2 Oct. The masks are super comfy and have an awesome nose piece to help with glasses fog. http://iwantitpersonalized.com/catalog.htm?item=749&fbclid=IwAR3vCFbOm_v8qlFJ5RFXyf_WIVHmUyQmq-A6Bcd1_Z30iTuTr9RdpRkIObk
