International Association of Firefighters Local 22 last week welcomed dozens of widows for a pre-Thanksgiving lunch and a lot more.
Kathy Perpetua, the Holme Circle woman who sells handmade rosary beads, last week donated $2,235 to the widows’ fund of International Association of Fire Fighters Local 22.
The Rev. James E. Tallman and his wife Pat cut the ribbon in The Rev. James E. Tallman Meditation Chapel at the Wesley Enhanced Living retirement community, at 8401 Roosevelt Blvd. Rev. Tallman served as president of the facility from 1983-99. The Spiritual Life Campaign, made up of residents, raised $81,000 for construction. Residents, their families and employees are able to pray, meditate and participate in small group study. The chapel features a piece of original artwork, a bronze and gold structure of the Burning Bush and a handcrafted altar.
