Church Chronicles – December 17

                                                          “CHURCH CHRONICLES”

FIRST, our UUFKC family offers condolences to Joyce Wagner and Family, on the loss of her mother in October, and Jaye Weiss and Family, on the loss of her mother on Veterans’ Day weekend.

SECONDLY,  we offer our hope for a hasty recovery and good health for Penny Hamilton and Kerry Tingley.  Our good friends from St. Paul’s,  these ladies ALSO are “worker bees” for St. Paul’s Food Bank, AND they “sling hash”  2x/week for free dinners at First Methodist Church.  Ladies, be well!!!

Bob Millard, also works St. Paul’s Food Bank, and stepped-up with Kiwanis pals, when Penny and Kerry’s health issues arose. THANKS, Roberto and Kiwanians. May I add their  Klamath Falls Kiwanis chapter  offers Mrs. See’s holiday candy as a fundraiser  at Diamond Home Improvement, from November 24th  (Black Friday) to Christmas Eve.  Great gift ideas, AND profits STAY in Klamath Falls to help local organizations serve local folks.

CONGRATULATIONS to our own Marilynn Sutherland on the naming of,  “Sutherland Trail”,  adjacent to the county public health office on Vandenberg. This may be a FIRST for a UU having a public space named for them.  (Phil, a clarification??)   Tree planting will follow the trail opening, most likely in Spring. Why not a UUFKC tree donated to honor Marilynn and her trail??   

WELCOME  to  our November 12th new members: Doree Larson, Ruth Carter, Annica & Jamie Palmer, Dawn Albright, Franny Howes and Nac Payne.

“A SPRINKLING” gathering on November 18th, welcomed Katie Johnson & Baby Boy Raelond.  “Cards and warm wishes” were shared.  Sally Wells hosted.

HANK EDWARDS spoke with us from Sierra Vista, AZ where he’s settled for winter, (or longer??).   He shared SV temps this Fall were all low 80’s. He’s still painting. His latest: an oil of a sloop he & his late Corinne once owned.  On December 2nd he goes on a cruise.

May this joyful season of dark and light create great memories for your holidays!
