He is still receiving antibiotics and he appears to have his cough back.

Hank was able to join us yesterday for the KOC Assembly patient luncheon at the VA Hospital. It was good to get him out of his room for awhile.

At this time he doesn’t know when he will be discharged and is still doing through physical therapy to strengthen his muscles. It must be working as he indicated he could feel muscles he didn’t remember having.

I’ll see him again next Wednesday and afterwards will send another update.

Brothers,
We found a blue Eddie Bauer jacket that someone left behind last night out near the cookers.  Let me know if it’s yours and I will get it back to you.

I visited with Hank yesterday.

He has been moved to Rehab at the VA Hospital in Durham. He hopes to be going home in April.
His spirits are good and he has a positive attitude.

We discussed visitors and phone calls, at this time he wishes to continue resting with no visitors or phone calls. He is still getting antibiotics via an IV. He is also receiving physical therapy throughout the day which tires him.

He is learning to walk again as his leg muscles need to strengthen. He has been given a rollator walker as
he is more comfortable using it when he walks.

I will visit him next Wednesday and afterwards provide another update.

If anyone has questions I will try to answer them for you.

Pete

Upcoming Events: March Business Meeting/Fish Fry

March 14th, 2019

Worthy Brothers,

Please accept my apologies, there were a few mistakes that I missed when reviewing the February minutes.  Original minutes stated that Terry Maher attended 2nd-degree exemplification and Jack Ford attended his 3rd. Minutes should have stated that Terry and Jack both attended their 2nd and 3rd-degree exemplifications.
Additionally, under dates to remember, the convention dates were given as 6/26-6/28.  The correct dates are 4/26-4/28.
The updated minutes are attached.
Vivat Jesus!

Canopies for Fish Fry

March 13th, 2019

Brothers,
It looks like there is a chance for rain on Friday right around the time of the fish fry.  I’m hoping to find someone who has a canopy or two that we can borrow to cover the cookers.  Please let me know if you are able to help out.
Thanks and God bless,
