    Message from Dee
        "Mom's Memorial Service was Saturday, and I want to thank everyone again for all the
        support you gave me during this past month.  It meant a lot.  I love you all.              Dee"

Update on Greg Wilson

        "I have good news on Greg and his recovery from the fire that burned his hands, arms and
        chest.  He is doing really well and has returned to work now that he has his fingers completely
        unwrapped.  The breeding of skin is coming along and other than the top of his hands things
        look great."    Joan

    More Good News from Joan
        "The other wonderful news to announce is that Walt and I are expecting our first grandchild
        very soon.  News was slow in coming and there was some concern for HER well-being but
        the last doctor's visit and tests have Greg and Des, Walt, Trevor and I anxious for her arrival.
        I will say that cross stitching is much more difficult once the eyes go.  We are having fun
        gathering up all the baby things that belonged to Greg and shopping for new pink things."

    Solvang  Update
        Eleven members went on the Solvang adventure. Our two rooms at  the Danish Country Inn
        turned into three after Vicki straightened out the management on their error.  We ate, shopped,
        ate, and watched videos in the room as we ate some more.  It was an enjoyable and relaxing
        trip for all.  Thanks, Vicki, for coordinating it for us and getting us the rooms together and the
        free video!

Cruise Update From Shirley

        "The cruise to the Western Caribbean- the "Texaribbean Cruise" will be scheduled for April
        23rd departure- Easter Sunday- 2000.   I have been in touch with a local travel agent and will
        meet with her on June 1st to get final details.  This is supposed to be a fun cruise, and not so
        expensive or such a long flight to get to the ship, as it leaves from Houston.   Prices start at
        about $1100 per person, including all taxes, airfare.  This is assuming a group of 8 cabins, and
        with early booking discount. Not bad, when you consider that all meals are included, and much
        of your entertainment, other than shore excursions, liquor, etc.  I will send more info after I talk
        with the travel agent.  If you have not already talked to me about the cruise, and you think you
        might be interested, give me a call."

        If you want a brochure or more info, call NCL at 1-800-327-7030, or


        Linda and Tim Good will be celebrating 25 years of "wedded bliss" on June 24th.


        Saturday, June 5th            6:00 pm

        Hopefully you are joining us at her old-fashioned, high-school-type slumber party for her 50th
        birthday.  For those who sent in their R.S.V.P. remember to bring a substantial hors d'oevre or
        snack for dinner as well as your White Elephant present for the exchange.  We will have
        make-it-yourself sundaes later and a catered breakfast in the morning..  Festivities also include
        arts and crafts.  Sally will provide wine and sodas (now we can drink wine "legally" at a
        slumber party since we are over 21).  Bring a sleeping bag & pillow.  7 beds & air mattresses

        No gifts please.


        Scheduled for June 4-6.  Friday and Saturday nights at house at Forest Meadows.  Golf Friday
        in Manteca.  Golf Saturday AM at Greenhorn Creek and Saturday PM at Forest Meadows.
        Golf Sunday AM at Forest Meadows.  Call Mike Ballard (274-3521) for details.


        Saturday, June 26            7:30 p.m.

        Come and help Greg celebrate with dessert outside on the patio.  Hopefully we'll have a nice
        evening to sit around and enjoy the stars, but bring a jacket just in case.

        No presents - instead, please bring 50 coins (any combination of pennies, nickels, dimes or
        quarters) to be donated to the Wish Book in Greg's honor.  (In case you don't get the Mercury
        News, this is a fund at Christmas time that makes wishes come true for people in our
        community who are in need.)

        R.S.V.P. to Dee by June 21
