Many of you have kept in touch about how Garey Larrabee is doing since his accident last fall, and I'm happy to report that Garey has done everything right and is getting back the use of his arm. However, Jane has had an on-going struggle for several months with a severe heart condition. She has been in and out of Central Vermont Medical Center in Berlin and is presently at Tufts Medical Center in Boston, her second visit there. The doctors there are hoping to do a procedure that will help her, and if this comes about, she will have to remain close to the hospital for an extended period for regular monitoring. Garey is headed for Boston today to be with Jane and hopes to be able to find an apartment close to the hospital for them to live in for however long it takes.
you can imagine, bills are piling up. The West Danville
community is trying to support them however they can. On May 3, there
will be a benefit dinner at the Danville Inn sponsored by the United
Methodist Women's group (UMW) in West Danville. Steve Cobb of the
Danville Inn is graciously donating a turkey pie supper "with all the
fixin's" beginning at 5 p.m. There is no fixed price for the supper - whatever donation you can make will be very much appreciated.
We hope friends and
neighbors will attend on May 3 and donate generously to help Garey and
Jane, who have given so much to our community over the years and now
really need our help. If
you cannot attend the supper, donations to support the Larrabees can be
sent to the UMW treasurer, Dorothy Larrabee, P. O. Box 55, West Danville VT 05873, or to Jane Milne, P. O. Box 116, West Danville, VT 05873.
