It has been a pleasure for her to lead –
For over ten years! Some 220 plus books!
Sherry has lead the book club all these years –
A lot of members have come and gone.
For one last time in person –
because of the pandemic – they met –
social distancing and outside –
to discuss the previous months book –
Little fires everywhere!
The members were spread out –
this is the last time she will lead in person.
After six months of ZOOM meetings
She contacted everyone to see if they were willing to meet this way!
Sixteen members showed up for the final book review.
Sherry has decided to continue as long as it is done on ZOOM.
Asking that if anyone would like to take it over
or know someone who would
she would step aside.
Many previous members have left the church and moved away
others have passed away – in her last years –
Sherry’s mother – Barb while she stayed with us
would come every month and read every book –
commenting when it came her turn.
Most of the time I am the only male present!
I must say – there are books I have read –
that most likely I would not of!
And I found some authors that I would search out their books.
We even read a nationally acclaimed book on the best seller list
and the author was a member of our church!
She attended the book review we did –
and she signed our book!
She has since moved to LA and is in the process of working
on the script for the movie!
The book club has been a way to connect with so many people!
Now – I sometimes take a break –
simply because I have my own books to read!
As we move on –
the ZOOM club will permit us to keep in touch
this part of our lives – the church and people
we shall always cherish.
And with the blogs on the church
in the years to come – we can look back and remember
bring memories to life!
Thank you for reading Papa’s World

Hey Tom! What book was on the best sellers list–and who is the author? That must have been before my time with Book Club ’cause I surely don’t remember it! Thanks much!!
Linda the book is Solo by Kwame. Alexander and Mary Rand Hess who was a member of our church!
