Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World Classroom. She distributed copies of the agenda for the February Executive Committee Meeting, which we began in class and continued (but unstructured) at DaVinci’s during lunch.

Class Updates February 4th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard at the Keyboard World Classroom. We were happy to see Rosie Morgan back in class and feeling so much better today. At the same time we were dismayed to hear of John Lynch’s continuing troubles. There is, however, a chance that he won’t have to go on dialysis right now. He has changed doctors to Dr. Welik. John remained in the hospital for today for chest x-rays and blood work. The medics are trying to improve his breathing problem. Nothing was said about correcting the losing of blood in the large intestine. Perhaps John was discharged from the hospital today, but I haven’t heard that for sure. Diane is going through a lot of stress and spending lots of hours in the hospital with John. Please pray for both of them. Betty Twigg missed class today because of a doctor’s appointment to see about her painful stomach and bloating. The doctor told her it was probably irritable bowel syndrome, but has scheduled several tests to confirm his diagnosis.

Class Updates January 28th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember. The weather this day was not too good, and Carol Harr and her mom were unable to come. Rosie Morgan was sick with one of her dizzy spells and, therefore, missed class. Diane Morgan was total beat with all she’s going through with John’s situation. She has had him at the WMHS again (twice)for blood transfusions. The medical team has decided to put John on Dialysis starting on Tuesdays/Thursdays and Saturdays. We had neglected to determine a lunch venue for Wednesday’s class, and we agreed to go to Texas Grill House. Next week, we’ll go to Denny’s.

Class Updates January 21st

Today was a snowy day, and attendance was therefore down some. Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. Despite the weather, six of us went to Shooter’s for lunch. John Lynch is in the hospital again with similar symptoms from before—lack of oxygen and stamina. Diane, therefore, was not able to attend class for that reason. Betty Twigg is suffering from a kidney infection and was absent from class. We did not hear from Sylvia Twigg.

Class Updates January 14th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember and then the group proceeded with the “abbreviated” Executive Committee Meeting, as we needed to determine the date and location for the Spring Quarterly. We agreed that we will have a Potluck luncheon at the Keyboard World location on March 25th. Judy Miller, of Grace UMC told Ellie that she will make us a carrot cake for the occasion! Diane Morgan read the minutes of our previous meeting, and Rosie Morgan gave the financial report. We couldn’t help but notice that our balance in the treasury is lower than it has ever been. Must be getting closer and closer to “dues are due” date!

Class Updates January 7th

Ellie welcomed everyone back from the holidays. We went over the Dates to Remember, which you can see are very sparse. We have no gigs, and with weather like we’re having right now, we don’t really want any. We gave both Carol and Shirley birthday cards and sang to them as they have birthdays on January 7 and 11, respectively. Happy Birthday to Carol and Shirley!

Class Updates December 10th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. She inquired about John Lynch’s progress since his hospitalization and was told that he’s limited in what he can do, but he’s coming along. Elaine Twigg was unable to attend Wednesday’s Christmas Quarterly because of inclement weather, but we missed her and hope that, perhaps, she’ll attend the In-Class Christmas Party on December 17th. The sign up book was circulated and people were asked to confirm what titles they plan to play on our final gig of 2014. That’s Tuesday, December 16th, folks. Don’t forget—Allegany County!

Class Updates December 3rd

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. She passed a draft of the program for the gig at Dawnview Nursing Home around and requested people to fill in their titles for that event. Betty Twigg, Rosie Morgan, and Diane Morgan had obligations at their churches and were unable to attend the class this week.

Class Updates November 19th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. Diane Morgan gave a report on John’s condition after his recent surgery. Ellie circulated the sign up book the program for Thursday’s gig so that those who had not given Ellie titles in advance could fill those in. She also requested that people sign up for the December 5th gig at Dawnview. Please inform Ellie if your titles for December 5th are DIFFERENT from the November 20th gig. Please pay Rosie for your dinner at the Christmas Quarterly ($11) per meal, and please don’t forget to have your items ready for the Jumble Sale. The Christmas Issue of Musically Speaking will be mailed probably before Thanksgiving. It’s just about ready to go to print now.

Class Updates November 12th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the Keyboard World Classroom white board. She requested titles for those who had given them to her for the program for the gig at Devlin Manor on FRIDAY, November 14th at 2 p.m. Rosie reported that John Lynch was still in the ICU at WMHS, though he has since been moved to a regular room. His condition is still not good, but at least he is eating regular diet food items since his colon resection. Other specialists are working to improve John’s breathing, his blood circulation, and his kidney problems as well as working to help him have a full recovery from the surgery. John’s discharge date has not been revealed to us as of this writing. Please keep him in your prayers…
