It was good to see our former president Jerome among the 21 of us at our Tuesday lunch this past week. He is now going through therapy in his recovery from the stroke. Many, many thanks to Alex for stepping in, taking over the regular chores, and getting us through Labor Day. Man, Alex is a good worker. We lost our oldest member, Ernie LaFerriere, in later October. He was 92 years old. His smile is missed.
