Coffee and donuts: Ken and Bev Rindt
Master of Ceremonies: Chuck Seely
Sound: Dick Dain and Bruce Balch
Deaths: None to report.
Theresa Koslusky is having a total knee replacement on Tuesday, July 20th. I injured the knee in April and again in May. The damage was too much for a cleanup. A replacement is the only option. I would appreciate some Saddlebag prayers for a successful surgery. Cards may be sent to the northern address in the directory.
MaryLou Underly had a severe stroke. She is in Winter Haven Hosp. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Bob Elkins was admitted to Lake Wales Hosp. with internal bleeding. Testing is being done to determine the cause. Cards may be sent to the local address in the directory.
Nettie Keiffer of 4 Beaverkill has had a car accident. I don't have any more information at this time.
Kaye Smith is back at the Life Care Center in Winter Haven. She is in room 412A. Hopefully this will be the last move, unless it is back home.
Sharon Fox sends a big thank you for all the prayers and cards. It's so good being a part of the community. She is going in for a liver biopsy and stent insertion on July 21. Cards may be sent to the northern address in the directory.
Please remember our Saddlebag friends with prayers, cards and phone calls.
