Let the spoiling begin! Congratulations to parents Leah and Eric, and brother Mason Staples upon the birth of twin boys Axel Raymond Staples and Cooper Wilson Staples. Weighing 7 pounds, 7 ounces, Axel arrived at 8:06 p.m. on May 3, followed 48 minutes later by 7-pound, 11-ounce Cooper.
Mom Leah pointed out to me that Axel takes after his father and Cooper has the Joy family face; it was evident to me that these two exquisite babies will bring much joy to the island.
Bev McAloon encourages us to give a helping hand to Tammy Tripler: “Tammy Tripler has helped so many islanders when they have been in need. We are having a benefit pot luck supper on Sunday, May 11, at 5 p.m. at the Baptist Church. Please bring a favorite dish to share.”
Donna Wiegle informs us: “Starting Tuesday, May 21, from 5:45-7 p.m., the Beth C. Wright Cancer Center is sponsoring a free virtual support group for cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers. The virtual support group will meet every two weeks for a 12-week session. You can participate from the comfort of your own home on your smartphone, tablet/computer, or regular phone. Call 664-0339 if you are interested in participating in the support group.
“If you don’t have the ability to participate from home, let me know and I will be happy to explore using the technology at the Mill Pond Health Center and meeting as a small group there to join the support group. Call me at 526-4101, or send me a private message on Facebook.”
Serena Walker invites the ladies to a special tea: “Join us at the Baptist Church Annex for a Ladies’ Prayer Tea on Friday, May 17, at 10 a.m. All are welcome! Let’s join together as sisters and take our needs to a loving Father.”
