Good Morning to All:
For those of you that have not heard, Audrey (Ma) Roiger fell at the VFW on Friday night at the Burger Basket. She suffered a broken hip and hurt her arm also. She had surgery on Saturday on her hip. She is currently at one of the hospitals in Rochester. This is what I received from Jigger last night. I will pass on more information as I receive it.
Please join me in wishing Bill & Donna Crawford’s daughter Kim & future son in law Matt, a lifetime of happiness as they tie the knot on Friday August 9th!
