EVENTS: Calendar and Bell Ringers for Thursday, November 8, 2018
Our hearts go out to the victims and their families of another horrific mass shooting at a “Country Night” event at a night club in Thousand Oaks, CA that happened late last night. The club was filled with young college-age people just trying to have a good time – not hurting anyone. Also killed was a sheriff’s deputy who rushed in to try to stop the gunman, and the doorman/bouncer/ security guard at the front door. We just wish that someone would come up with a solution to stop this madness. The deputy, a husband and a father, was due to retire this year after 29 years of service to his community. Damn.
Special thanks to Jackie Renke for fixing Barb’s computer. You have no idea how much you are appreciated, Jackie! She needs to be added to the list of “Women of the Year”!
