As you know if you read last month’s issue, Norma and I have been very busy with family. However, the dust has settled now and things are back to normal. There’s even an extra special upcoming event that we are happily expecting. Yes, we’reexpecting. Norma and I were invited to view our granddaughter’s ultrasound the other day. May 31, 2019, we will welcome anewborn baby boy into the family. Great news.

We had a really big turnout at the luncheon on the 19th. Carol (McLaughlin) West joined us. It was her first visit. I’m glad you came, Carol. Mark Clark also joined us. He has a new prosthesis on his right leg from the knee down. He’s doing great withit too...even decorated it with stars and stripes. Neat.

Norma and I are heading back south on Christmas Eve day. The January issue will detail the Reunion food costs. Sorry it took so long to get this out to you. In the meantime, Norma and I want to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

Dick Lemaster and G.R.O.W.


As many of you know, Dick Lemaster, who has several hobbies, has one particular hobby that provides him (and us) a lot of pleasure. He somewhat recently (in the last few years) started carving wood – cottonwood bark to be exact. Each Christmas, he makes it a point to carve figurines that complement the season. He carves really cute snowmen and santa ornaments. This year, Dick and Patsy decided to use the sale of their ornaments to bless a ministry named G.R.O.W. – Grace Refuge Outreach Worldwide. Their work, since 2009, has been directed at rescuing at-risk kids in Thailand. These children are victims of the sex-trafficking industry. This ministry is especially meaningful for Dick as he witnessed that sort of thing when he served in the Navy. The ornaments are displayed below. If you are interested in giving to the ministry by purchasing an ornament, you can contact Dick at 740-504-3141. You can contribute also without making a purchase. Dick does not take a

penny from the sales. All monies are donated to the G.R.O.W. ministry.

Book Review

By Stephanie Dray and Laura Kamoie

Coming of age on the perilous frontier of revolutionary New York, Elizabeth Schuyler (a general’s daughter) champions the

fight for independence when she meets Alexander Hamilton, General George Washington’s penniless but passionate aide-

de-camp. But the union they createin their marriage and the new nationis far from perfect. From glittering inaugural

balls to bloody street riots, the Hamiltons are at the center of it all. When a duel destroys Eliza’s hard-won peace, the grieving

widow fights her husband’s enemies to preserve Alexander’s legacy. But long-buried secrets threaten everything Eliza

believes about her marriage and her own legacy. Questioning her tireless devotion to the man and country that have broken

her heart, she’s left with one last battleto understand the flawed man she married and the imperfect union he never could

have created without her...
