Class Updates August 19th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. Rosie reports that Diane is in a good bit of pain and that she is unable to take the pain medication as she’s allergic to it. She has been back to the surgeon for followup appointments a couple of times. John was in the hospital a week ago, but he’s back at home now.

Class Updates August 12th

Ellie went over the Dates to remember as shown above and on the white board in the Keyboard World Classroom. We spoke of Diane and John and their health issues. John is still in the hospital and Diane is doing fairly well. Today she has an appointment at the oncologist’s office and tomorrow she has a follow-up visit with the surgeon. Sadly, two of our Notables have passed away this month, Martha Shimer and Lurene Seekamp. They are in our prayers as are their survivors.

Class Updates August 5th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the white board of the Keyboard World Classroom. Ellie announced that the August Executive Committee will be a brief one just to discuss the procedures/entertainment/menu for the Fall Quarterly (September 23). By the way the date was erroneously published in last week’s updates. September 23rd is the CORRECT Date.

Class Updates, July 29th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the whiteboard in the Keyboard World Classroom. It has been decided that we don’t really need formal Executive Committee Meetings anymore. We will plan the Fall Quarterly Meetings and make any pertinent announcements on the 2nd Wednesday of the remaining months before we disband.

Class Updates July 8th

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and on the Keyboard World Classroom. Treasurer Rosie Morgan announced that the Notables have paid Ron over $2000 for the $2 per week organ lessons. We’re all sorry to hear that Diane Morgan has breast cancer. She has an appointment with the surgeon in a few days to see what the next step will be. Please keep her in your prayers. It was coincidental that both Harold and Shirley Hoopengarner were sporting “injuries” in class on Wednesday. Harold had cut his finger on a blade of some sort and had been treated at the emergency room in Keyser. Shirley knocked her hand against a piano in the classroom, and the hand swelled to a large lump almost immediately. Carol Harr was scheduled for several medical tests on Wednesday afternoon after class. Good luck to her. John Lynch has an appointment this week for further work on the installation of a port to make the Dialysis procedure a bit easier. Elaine Twigg went to the emergency room in Somerset with chest pains earlier this week. There was nothing discovered by the medics who treated her at the time.

Class Updates June 17th

Ellie called attention to the Dates to Remember as shown on the Program for the June 17th Summer Quarterly (Picnic) at Midland. Also, she noted that the Health Dates were also published in the Quarterly Program. Ellie related that Carol Harr was absent this day because her Mother is in the hospital at WMHS. Her condition was being evaluated and a family meeting with the medical personnel was to be held on June 17th to determine what care arrangements might be made for Emma. We do not know the outcome of the meeting as of this printing. Mike Gallaher had a bout in the VA Medical Hospital at Martinsburg, West Virginia, when he suffered a scary incident of rectal bleeding. Medical tests performed indicated that he has Diverticulosis; he is to follow up with the VA doctor at the Cumberland Clinic.

Class Updates June 3rd

Ellie went over the Dates to Remember as shown above and in the newsletter that was distributed in today’s class. Ellie explained to the class about the activities scheduled for Wednesday, June 10th—Graduation for Diane’s organ students, recital by students, concert by Chuck Wright (Lowrey artist) and a barbecue dinner. We are invited to attend and participate in all of the above. She pointed out the sign-up sheets on the round table in the back of the classroom for people to indicate if they wish to attend and/or participate. One sign-up sheet was for those who would like to play a song during the recital; the other was to get a head-count for those who wish to attend the barbecue. It appeared to Ellie that if our group is interested in any of the activities, it would be the concert by Chuck Wright at 3:30.
