Interested in a kayak paddling group?

Submitted by: Lynne Johnson

If anyone is interested in chairing a kayaking group on the lake please contact social committee member Lynne Johnson (lynne.n.mike@gmail.com). This could be really low key such as meeting at the lighthouse every Friday at 7:00 for a group paddle around the lake. You name it!!!

Helping a Neighbor in need

Submitted by: Alexandra Andronikos

Paul and Andrianna West, lakefront neighbors on NE Shore Dr, need our help.

Andrianna has been in treatment for the past three years for peripheral T-cell lymphoma – an uncommon, often fatal, form of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. Her medical team is recommending a stem cell transplant. This offers her the best hope of survival. The transplant requires one month of hospitalization and several months of intensive follow-up with 24/7 care giving.

To help offset the extraordinary expense of stem cell transplantation costs, a fundraising campaign in Andrianna’s honor has been established with HelpHOPELive, a nonprofit organization that has been assisting the transplant community for nearly 30 years.

To read more and see how you can help please see the attached.

A fundraiser, “Blues and Wine for Andrianna” is being held Mar 11 at the Kennedy School with legendary artist Lloyd Jones playing his acoustic guitar, hors d’oeuvres, wine, a silent auction and a Wall of Wine. For a flyer of the event, feel free to email me.

For more information, a flyer of the event, or evite, please email AWestBenefit@aol.com

No matter how much you help large or small anything will help. We have a neighbor facing one of the most diffcult times of her life, keep her in your prayers.
