Jan. 17, 2012: What a great group today with several that we had not seen in a long time.  Welcome back!  Sorry to hear from Edith Nash that she had to place Robert in Golden Living Briarwood on LaVista Road and does not know how long he will be there.  Please keep them in your prayers.  Also please remember Joan Thornton, Jean Donohoe and George Bowen who are also having serious  physical problems.

Members signed up today to host various luncheons in 2012.  Kay Fulmer will handle February 21 luncheon which will probably be in the Suwannee area.  She will let us know soon.   View 2012 Golden Girl Calendar.  We still need hosts for July, October and November.
