From Sue Gable
Greetings from your northwestern next door neighbor! Why do I mention northwestern? Because except for one particular snowstorm, we have gotten less snow than you folks just by reason of our position in the state. As I write this I believe the weatherman has overestimated our snow totals for this hopefully last storm. Of course, as I heard from Mrs. Silcox, they have over 4 feet of snow that won’t melt until April or May. She says she sent us the snow we have gotten this season!
We had a good month at HBC. One of the highlights was renewing our friendships with the Wilhite family. We topped off a good day of services with a homemade waffle fellowship. We borrowed six waffle irons and had a blast!!
We again enjoyed being close enough to join in with EBA for the annual skating activity. After watching everyone skate for about half of the evening my husband decided to take me out for a “date” instead of a “skate”—we used a birthday gift certificate from our son and daughter-in-law to enjoy a meal at Olive Garden. I couldn’t believe that we had to wait to get a parking space—and this is with a “bad” economy. What would things be like if the economy was good?
That reminds me to thank you all for the birthday bookstore certificates. We picked out 3 CDS and a Bible study book. We got one CD that brought back many memories. How many of you ladies remember the trumpet player who came to LVBC over 25 years ago—Sam Slabodian?
Wednesday, March 3rd begins our first night of a monthly ladies Bible study. Sarah will be leading us with a study she has been doing with Judy on the book of Philippians. I’m really looking forward to participating in this as I got glimpses of this study in the past few months and it is really interesting and thought-provoking.
In conclusion we are thankful to be able to send Alan Noecker and our daughter Rachel to the student convention with your teens the end of this month. We don’t take for granted the ability to join in with most of your activities—nor your prayers or financial support. Thank-you so much!!
