Many thanks to Edith Nash for handling the May luncheon.  There were several  things that interrupted this event at Edith's home including the passing or our favorite honorary member, George Bowen.  However, a few did get together for lunch that day. I had to take my husband to the Longstreet Cancer Center in Gainesville for chemo and evaluation with his new oncologist.

Most recently we were saddened to learn of the passing of Kay Fulmer's brother, George Holdcroft  who had been ill with serious heart problems for quite some time.

We still need a hostess for October luncheon. 

Remembering George Bowen --
a Godly man of great character and accomplishments!

Repeat of the DeKalb County School Board Debacle

Anything new on this one?

Have you been following the DeKalb County School board debacle?  Don't know about you, but every day I thank God that I am not still there.  Education has changed so much since I started teaching in 1955.

What say you?  Do you think the Governor did the right thing with the DeKalb School Board?  Below are some of the many articles which have been published that I have seen.
