Kudos Department

The following was reported to me by Vice-President Margaret McAlister: “I popped into the office one day during our usual rainstorm to see how Susie was doing, and to my horror saw water running out of the ceiling light in her office. I sputtered: ‘What's with the water coming out of this light?’ Susie replied good-naturedly: ‘Sometimes that happens when it rains.’ I replied that we rather liked her and were not interested in her being electrocuted any time soon, and I would see what I could do about this. John Bost, who had already supplied some names of roofers, obtained 4 estimates for the roof repair with lightening rapidity. Zoltan cheerfully dried the roof the day before the workers came. This was all accomplished within 3 weeks.” The bid went to a company called Palm Roofing; fortunately they do not use palm leaves in their repairs. So at present writing, our office is snug and dry.

Summer Hours
Our office hours have changed. We will be available Monday - Thursday from 10am-2pm and on Sundays from 10:30-12:30pm. All calls & emails will be returned & addressed during office hours. Zoltan Bakos, CustodianMonday- 8am-12pm % % Tuesday- 8am-3pm % % Thursday- 11am-6pm % % !
