Linda Bates is back home. It was a rocky road for Haiti this last year - the earthquake, the rainy season, lack of food, water, housing, malaria, the riots and the horror of cholera. It seemed that a trip was going to be impossible to make. However on January 16, volunteers sorted and packed $150,000 in medical supplies in 15 suitcases. Linda tells us, "The agent for West Jet Airlines was fantastic. My four volunteers and I had special permission to each carry on two back-packs and check three 50 lb. suitcases of medical supplies on our flight to Miami." The five then boarded the Cruiseline ship in Miami and were on their way to Haiti. Because of the cholera threat, the team could not leave a restricted area in Haiti. Linda had prearranged for a driver to come from Grison Garde to pick up the shipment. Back on board the ship, the team received the call that all had been safely delivered. Kudos to Linda and the volunteers, Deborah and Doug Lovegrove, Lise Woods and Matt Hutcheon.

The Verona community extends its condolences to the family of Raymond Kingston who passed away on Friday, January 28th in his 66th year. He was the beloved husband of Grace, father of Brock and Angela Kingston and grandpa to Bailey and Soren.
