November 11, 1918 was the day the armistice was signed to end World War One. It was originally created as a celebration of Peace.  This is a time to remember all those who survived and all those who didn’t. Thank you for your service. And I’m so sorry…

“We must continue to shelter in place, protect our families, our community, follow all safety protocols, wear masks, social distance and limit interactions in your home to 10 or less individuals,” a post to the Lummi Communication Facebook page Monday read. “Rather than visiting your family and loved ones, call them or Facetime them. Protect each other.”


I would love an opportunity to meet over Zoom with you and your neighbors on your own block to plan for earthquakes and other emergencies in the time of COVID. If you are willing to reach out and invite the neighbors who live on your block, I will join you and facilitate your meeting. This is a good time to come together with the people who live around us. They are  the ones most likely to be there in the event of a disaster – or even a big winter storm. We can do this! Love/Fl!p 360-671-4511

ST. PAUL’S EVENT 11/15 12-3pm

St. Paul’s Episcopal Church at 2117 Walnut is planning a parade-style celebration event this Sunday. Members of the congregation have been asked to enter the neighborhood via Monroe St. above Walnut St. We have staggered the members’ arrival so as not to cause too much traffic at one time. In the event that you find yourself “stuck” in the parade, kindly let one of our traffic flaggers (look for the safety vests) know and they will assist you in passing by the parade line safely. The carillon bells will be playing extra hymns on the hour, enjoy the music! For more information, visit our website at or call Myra Corcorran, Communications Manager, at 360.927.8803.

Sung by John Gorka.  It is actually a poem which may have been found in a hospital in the Philippines during World War II. My most recent search found it was written by  Elma Dean. Gorka set it to music.
