A note from Fran Van Sandt:
I am doing well after the pacemaker surgery.  Thank you for your prayers. Robin, Kathy's husband, begins his treatments on Monday the 23rd and will be undergoing treatment for at least 5 weeks. We appreciate all the prayers coming his way.
The Thanksgiving Basket program was very full this year. We had 395 applications and 375 of those showed up on Saturday for pick up. Drive by only! Thank you to the church for again letting us use our wonderful facility. I trusted my prayers to God for the funds to take care of this and He indeed answered the prayers, God Bless all of you and Happy Thanksgiving.
