    It was a good day on Monday for our weekly Evergreen Outreach meeting – not a cloud in the sky. We welcomed  everyone with music, smiles and handshakes. All signs of good friendship.
    Our refreshments  gave us time to get re-acquainted, since for some it has been a couple of weeks since we've seen each other.  We sang "Happy Birthday" to John Bollinger, and Randy Schukar gave us an update on his mom, Katy, who is in the hospital. We will pray for her.
