“And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins.

Use hospitality one to another without grudging.”

Attention anyone who attended Doak High School. There is a reunion being planned for July 29. I will have more information in my letter later. You didn’t have to graduate from Doak to be invited. If you went to school in any grade, you are welcome to attend.

Don’t forget the men and women who are serving our country and their families who are waiting for them to return home.
