Well Wishes

Good news for Les Lawson, who went to the doctor last month, and found he was cancer free and will have periodic check-ups for the next few years.

 

Phil Price received a pacemaker recently and reports he is feeling much better and more like his old self.

 

Patsy Gillette has decided to sell Jay’s 37 Plymouth. Norman Davis checked everything out on the car, since it has been sitting for several years.

It’s a 4 door with 350 Chevy, 350 Turbo that runs great. Probably only 40,000 miles since built, Asking $25,000.

If interested, contact Patsy at 423-914-4521
