October was quiet as far as TNT activity was concerned. We, unfortunately, had to deal with other, sadder matters which we had not anticipated. Two of our longtime and faithful members went home to be with the Lord. But how good of the Father to give us hope through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. We look forward to the day when Christ will make all things new, and when the dead in Christ will rise again, and we shall all sing the song of victory around the throne of God! Praise the Lord!!!
Coming up in November will be our TNT event for the month. We will again have our craft workshop when you can make those special items for friends and family for the holidays.
Last year, Joan Hannibal led the Christmas plate craft. Well, she is back by popular demand! Then Jerri Raines will be teaching how to do quilling. Oh is that a great way to make unique cards for that special friend or loved one! Barbara Chapman and Joyce Matthews will each also be leading a craft event. So watch for the sign-ups on Sunday mornings outside R.202/208.
The date of the workshop will be Thursday, November 7, from 10:00-2:00, in Fellowship Hall. A luncheon will also be served. (Cost for lunch will be $4.00) Cost of the crafts will vary according to which one(s) you choose to make. Look for the prices at the sign-up tables. Come join us, invite your oikos, and let’s have a good time together.
Flu Shot Time:
As the flu season approaches (actually it’s already here), the question often arises as to who should or should not get a flu shot. So here are some guidelines that might be helpful in answering that question: According a recent article those six months old and up should get a flu shot, including:
· Those at high risk of developing serious complications such as pneumonia if they contract flu
· Those who have such medical conditions as asthma, diabetes, and chronic lung disease
· Pregnant women
· Those 65 and older
· Those living with or caring for high risk individuals
However, one should not get the standard flu shot if:
· You have a severe allergy to chicken eggs
· You have had a severe reaction to flu vaccinations
· You have a fever (wait until you recover from any illness causing fever)
You have a history of Guillain-Barre Syndrome (GBS) that occurred after a flu shot. (Let your doctor know if you have ever been diagnosed as having had GBS.)
