Jean Joyner has been released from Chippenham Hospital, and is continuing her care at a rehab facility in Fredericksburg, VA.  It is my understanding when she is released she will be staying with her daughter Juli Layne in Stafford.  Her granddaughter, Madison Van Worth, has provided the following address for anyone who would like to send Jean cards:  Jean Joyner, c/o Juli Layne, 38 Sarasota Drive, Stafford, VA  22554

William Koren is still recovering at home from his recent eye surgery.   He has had some follow up procedures in the past few weeks to help in his recovery.  Cards may be sent to:  William Koren, 2056 Fortview Drive, Chester VA 23831

If any of you would like to become an Officer of Elections, you may stop by the church office (or the General Registrar’s office @ 245 E. Broadway, Suite 4, Hopewell, VA) to pick up a Poll Worker application.  Return the filled copy to the General Registrar’s office.  (Kathy Petik)
