shows genuine concern They gather on Wednesday mornings for the best breakfast in just to be with each and to gather around a best seller once a week and talk about They are a group of anywhere from 2035 men who meet at 7 every Wednesday in ihe Parish Hall of Johns Episcopal Im privileged to be a member of that though Im not a member of that And when I miss a Wednesday which happens occasionally because I must attend another meeting of some sort I really feel Before I came to New I met every Monday morning with a neighborhood group that was headed by a fellow named John Caskey in John was is an Episcopal priest and a good In that latter when he learned I was leaving Galveston to come to New he called the Bob Keith at Go meet this Father John told his counterpart in New Hes a good Youll like So Id only been here a few days when Bob called and invited me to Over that lunch at the Adobe we got acquainted and somewhere in the course of the he mentioned the Wednesday morning Bible study group and invited I was in my meet everybody you can possibly meet as fast as you can possibly meet them mode right so I And Ive been going every With that single telephone Caskey gave me a good friend in Bob he gave me many more in those who attend that Wednesday morning I can think of few places where Ive ever felt as as as I feel when I walk into that little fellowship hall on Wednesday Though most of those men see me and know me only in that their warmth is genuine The little groups kitchen crew is ramrodded by David Sullens a fellow named Ed Eds a retired government Hes so downtoearth and unassuming that I was amazed to learn that he was the legendary McMullens good right arm at Randolph Air Force and that hes a former San Antonio city I was also amazed to learn that whom Id have guessed to be in his mid50s to will celebrate his 80th birthday next Ed has organized a group Keith calls them Eds Raiders who take care of a lot of the maintenance around and hes a key player in that Last summer even saw him climbing around on the churchs Archie who is a retired Air Force is another of the groups kitchen who is the electrician for Eds has adopted the churchs griddle and after every he polishes it until it And if someone in another group uses that griddle and leaves it in less than spotless youve never heard the like of grousing in your Dell Strube specializes in pancakes on Wednesday and Charlie Motz does pancakes and is the groups recognized expert when it comes to Terry who retired after a career with the Lower Colorado River can tell you anything you ever wanted to know about the old powerplant here in New And Terry doesnt know that I know he played football at Doug Phillips is a retired pilot for United That makes him very knowledgeable not only about but aboutthings like the Hes an interesting breakfast In most of these guys are interesting breakfast Bob Creech is a retired geologist and Ernst Erdman was an immigration Bud Dallmans vocation was but hes best known nowadays as an outstanding swimming Bennie Bock is an attorney and and a former Les who with Bob Dingeldein is a spark plug for the Seniors Center of Comal is a retired government

choir director at Lukes Episcopal Church in San Hill Carbock is a surgeon and Don Bedford is a Bern Wills is an accountant with Westpoint Its just a really neat cross section of Keith said of the group over lunch one day last Keith himself started the breakfast group about seven years We had no idea how many to expect that first he so we there were 12 so lets set 12 We did and thats exactly how many Its the fellowship thats so Keith And this is a group that really cares for one Dell had surgery on his hand not long ago and Ed was right on top of They watch out for each They just really
