for others, selfless service, and worthy example qualify one for such

From My Niece, Shari, of VA - 09/28/18 - "Just a little reminder, as our nights are getting cooler.":
Don't forget to check or change the batteries,in your smoke alarms.
In a couple of months it will be 6 years since I lost a dear friend, to a house fire.
It was found that her smoke alarm had a dead battery.
Scared me enough, that when one of mine beeped repeatedly I let it go until someone with the correct knowledge could assist. It was part of a whole house system, and disconnecting one would have disconnected all of them. As annoying as it was, I knew it was better to deal with the sound for a short duration. In one house I mortgaged, there was a spontaneous fire from a short in an electrical box in the garage. In that case it put itself out, but the signs were telling and it could have easily spread. One just never knows what can spark a fire, so it's best to do all in our power to be proactive, as far as preventing and alerting.
YOWZERONI! Thank you so much for this important reminder, Shari!
From Linda DeShazo Hatchett ('65) of VA - 09/28/18:
|BRILLIANT! Thank you, Linda - AND Dr. Seuss!|
From Elizabeth Tedder Nunnally ('65 / '68) of VA - 09/28/18:
|Thank you, Elizabeth!|

Sweet Oversized Cupcake Pincushion Crochet Pattern -

look like my cupcake was covered in sprinkles!"

Make a Sweet and Simple Shawl for yourself and you're sure to stay warm and stylish year-round. This shawl is great for any time of year, even a nice summer night. Brown is a great color for fall, but you could use light pink or pale blue for the summer months. This crochet shawl pattern measures 24 inches wide by 60 inches long, although it's designed to accommodate whatever length you want."
