Among Us 

Don Carroll has begun hospice care.  Notes and cards reminding him he is being thought of would be appreciated.  Cards can be sent c/o his daughter, Sally Carroll, 2254 S. Claremont Ave., Fresno CA 93727.  If you have children, perhaps they could make or decorate a card for him, even if they don’t know Don.  It is one way to have our kids learn that a church cares for all its members.

Ana Pan and Bill Wourms (former members) have moved to the Bay Area (San Ramon) and periodically attend UU Church in Walnut Creek. They would like to offer hospitality to those attending the 2017 Pacific Central District Assembly being held 5/5 & 5/6.  They have two twin beds (trundle style), a double and a queen.  Ana’s cell is (510) 421-6105.
