Dear Mechanicsburg Church of the Brethren, I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you all for your cards, prayers and good wishes. 

They have helped me to keep in good spirits and have advanced my somewhat slow recovery.  Your support has meant a lot to my family.

Everyone is welcome to attend the Knitting Group which meets the second and fourth Mondays of each month at 1:00 in the church library.
