SISLT and SITS have been participating in the Camp Fire Childrens’ Book Drive – members have generously donated children’s books to replenish the books children lost in the Paradise fire … CHERYL CHAMBERS welcomed a new grandson, Nolan James on January 22 and introduced him to us at a recent meeting (and his mom, Katie) … MARYLOU WHITCOMB had a two week vacation in Hawaii but got sick before she left and the prescription warned “no sun, no alcohol, no dairy” – did I mention she went to Hawaii? … PREZ PAM & Mike spent two weeks in Mexico with JOYCE BLACKSTONE-TURNER & RON – and highly recommends their hospitality… we enjoyed getting to know JULIE GUDAITIS who was featured in our “getting to know you” (I don’t know if this program has a name) presentation which included her announcement that she and extreme athlete Tom Ward will be marrying on Sept. 14 … PAT DISNEY has welcomed her 8th great grandchild … VICKIE GONZALES had a hysterectomy recently and her sister came to assist her while husband Rudy and sons took over the household chores … Sadly, much of our news this month isn’t happy: former member CAROL THOMSON has been living in Chico for a number of years and kept in touch with DEL LAINE – Del learned that Carol died during surgery in January … We extend our condolences to DAVEY PAIVA and Doug Phillips, their son died in December … also to JANEY ROESER – her mom died in February … and to MICKEY MADDEN her husband of 48 years, Doug, died February 1st .
