The Very “Sweetie” Massage Day benefit was held at the lovely home of Mark and Julie Perkins in Vevay February 7th. Mark and Julie had the benefit for the Antoinette “Toni” Kniola Red HOT Hatters Memorial Fund. A large crowd attended and a very generous donation was collected. John Kniola attended and was very impressed with the outcome. Toni was a very active Red HOT Hatter. Thank you, Mark and Julie, and all who attended.

This weather is terrible. I hope we are about past the worse part. The Florence Church of Christ did have a Sunday morning service. A few showed up and some who couldn’t get to their own church were welcomed too.
