Here is a long overdue update on family goings-on over the past several months, and like our last posting, includes both glad and sad tidings. Thanks to a request for a notification (see below) from David Pentland, LC has been stirred from his hibernation.
First we must report our sad news. Alicia Salter informs us that Ray has developed a very serious neurological llness and is undergoing testing which is incomplete at this writing. We will all keep him and his family in our prayers and update you when we have more information from Alicia.
Our glad news is very happy indeed. If you have not learned of the newest clan member here he is:
The happy note from the Easthopes with Oliver’s specs:
“We are overjoyed to announce that Oliver Chambers Easthope was born on 1.15.15 at 5:35pm, measuring 6lbs 7oz and 20.5 inches. Henry is elated to be a big brother and we are thrilled to be settling in at home as a new family of four!
Anne, David, Henry & Oliver”
Such good news Anne and David. We hope to see Oliver out here at the Chambers’ headwaters soon!
Last Thanksgiving at Moone Athy, graciously hosted by Sarah Fehlig, we were fortunate to have several out of town family visitors, including Nick Salter, Lemoine and Sophie Skinner, and Sarah Law. A highlight of the day was a concert put on by Sarah Fehlig – a thank you is in order for all her work in printing up music for the family Chambers Chamber Orchestra, and for the collection and printing of the vocal parts as well.
Again thanks to all, especially the Fehligs, for making this a memorable Thanksgiving.
Congratulations are in order for David Pentland who sent this to the family:
“This is my new rugby team – I’m one of three founders, starting Dec 2014. We are based in Illinois near the Glen Carbon area. I’ll be the forwards coach (scrum coach). The Polk family has a great legacy of ruggers, I am proud to keep the tradition going. Could you please post my new Mercenaries rugby logo on ourrumpus? Just like all rugby teams we are always looking for players sponsors and fans.
Any of the younger men (sorry girls…) can contact Davey to join up! Uncle Bill Cromie will be proud of your commitment to the sport!
Till the next trickle down…
