It is not known when he will be able to return to work. Since the accident happened at his home he will not be eligible for workman's comp. some residents are making contributions to assist the family at this time. Anyone wishing to participate may send it to the office.

Soup Supper/Movie

No pictures because once again I forgot to bring my camera...however, a couple of dozen Leisure World Residents enjoyed a Hillbilly Bean Soup supper last evening. Loaded with ham and assorted beans, plus, Al and Linda DeCock prepared a delicious supper for us. Added to the hearty ham and bean soup was fresh cornbread and a wide assortment6 of desserts.  Thanks to the DeCocks for a great kickoff to eating our way through May.
About a dozen gathered at 7:00 for our weekly movie, "Seven Days in Utopia". This was one I hadn't heard much about, but found to be thoroughly delightful. One thing that I liked and will remember was the "grace" delivered at the family meal.  I had not heard this before, but will share it with others in the future.  It goes like this:

For food in a world where many walk in hunger;
For faith in a world where many walk in fear;
For friends where many walk alone;
We give thee thanks.
Amen
