THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS

Our sympathy goes out to the friends and families of Frankie Marlene Teesateskie Junaluska who passed away on Feb. 4 and to the friends and family of Edith Rogers Hooper who passed away Friday, Feb. 7.  The Club also extends its sympathy to the friends and family of Irene Squirrell Martin who passed away on Saturday, Feb. 8.  Please keep these families in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

For school closings and delays please check WLOS-TV where the closings and delays will be streamed across the bottom of the screen.  The delays or closings are usually posted no later than 5:30 a.m. each morning if inclement weather is a factor in the schedule changes.  Closings are also posted on the Boys Club’s Facebook page.

PLEASE BE CAREFUL

With winter weather being predicted for the next few days, please use extreme caution when driving to and from your homes.  Please avoid travel if it is not absolutely necessary.  Also be careful when walking on icy surfaces and check on your elders to make sure they have the food, water, heat and medication they need.  Check on your pets as well to ensure their needs are being met during the winter weather.
