    Hi, Ruth. I hope you had a restful weekend.

    As you probably know, I am coming to the Laurelville retreat with my friends Lorraine Austin and Karen Guisewite. Karen was confused about who was coming and put down Betty Kreider as her roommate. Betty is not able to come, so Karen, Lorraine and I will be sharing a room. Thanks for helping us with this, and we look forward to being at the retreat.

  2. Pam, I am so happy that you will be at the Laurelville Women in Conversation, and will look forward to talking to you there. I will pass on this information to Angela Dietzel at Laurelville, so she gets this straightened out.

    Best wishes, Ruth
