A Special Request from Vito, Neal, and Our Brothers from Secaucus

Vito says, "A roof with holes is NOT HOLY! Let's remember some good nuns in our lives and show some kind of support. Can someone DONATE a roof?

Neal McGarrity and our Brothers from Secaucus are asking for support for the nuns in Fairview.  Their roof is leaking and the brothers are trying to help the nuns get a new roof so they don't have to move out and leave the area.  The goal is to raise $9,000.00

PSD Tony Zally Update

From Bob Hatler, State Secretary:
Last week PSD Herb Meyer received a phone message that PSD Tony Zally was going into the hospital.  Tony never indicated why and it has taken the last two weeks trying to find out the situation.  After many calls and requests the email I received from Jim Meng who received word from Bob Wizeman spells out the situation.  He had surgery and currently is in rehab center.

The rehab facility, Care One is located at 221 County Road, Cresskill, NJ 07626.  It looks like he'll be there for a few weeks.  Please remember him in your thoughts and prayers.

The e-mail from Bob Wizeman:
I finally reached Tony's brother Bill, and got the latest news.  Tony is fine, although he did have hip surgery.  He is recovering at Care One in Cresskill, and he will be there at least another two weeks. He told his brother he is anxious to get back to Sunrise, as there food is good (pretty funny since he complained about it when he was there).  I tried to reach him in his room, but he was away and there is no answering machine.  The number is (201) 567-9310.  I will be way in MA, for a little bit and will try to stop by when I get back.  Bill thought he was in room 24.
