    We continue to get updates from our Members as well as our Sunshine Lady, Bernie Yencha about concerns for some of our members & friends of The Club.

    Barbara Poplawski is undergoing Chemo treatments. Our prayers and concerns are with Barbara, Gene, and their family.

    It was so good to see Ken Cichowski's son, John at The Club this past Sunday.

    Ed Schweinert did not have surgery this past Tuesday as was planned due to his acute pancreatitis. Once the infection is relieved he will undergo gall bladder surgery. Our prayers are with Ed and Barbara and their families.

    We hope that Mania Majewski will feel better after a setback this past week.

    Stephanie and Milt Kruk have been unable to join us at The Club for the past two weeks as Stepahnie has been experiencing some back issues.

    Lois Weissman fell several weeks ago and is still recuperating.

   It was so good to see Barb and Art Inselmann at The Club on Paczki Day. This was their first visit to The Club this year as a result of Health issues affecting both of them. Now Barb is undergoing some more tests relative to her vertigo and may have to miss a good more of our opening season.

    Ann O'merzo felt sick all weekend and missed our Sunday dance. Hope she is feeling better.

    We visited Norma Shiero in Parrish last week. She and her daughter, Cindy joined us for lunch. Norma and her late husband, Bob were long-time members and regular attendees who sat with us at Table 8 for many years. Norma is recovering nicely from a serious fall she incurred several weeks ago
