NewsfromFriends-We are happy to report that a cheerful, long letter has been received from Julie R. who remains at Hawkesbury Lodge. Sadly, due to current restrictions she has been unable to see her husband, family or friends for 8 weeks. We are sure she would welcome a card, letter or phone call to keep in touch with us.
