     month like we did last month. Thank to
     Vivian Whitman, Ruth Finan, Cindy Craft,
     Joan Melluse, Marilyn Walsh and Millie
     Tusay for bringing snacks and dessert. I
     will take care of coffee and iced tea again
     this month but we need probably two des-
     serts and two snacks. Please call me at                             Knights Insurance Corner

     something. Most of us seemed to feel the

     meeting in the hall went well except for the
     complaints about our noise. Perhaps we
     can solve that problem with just a few more
     dividers. I will bring a few games again and
     perhaps Trish will bring Mexican Train and
     teach us how to play that if there is any in-
     terest. We had a great turnout last month
     and hope to see more of you this month.
