Cotati, CA. ~ Dear Paul An- drew Doyle: I am Lee Young- son, pastor in Sonoma County. Thank you for taking care of me and our church members. My church is located in So- noma County.

Because most

of our members live in Santa Rosa, they have suffered a lot as a result of the fi re.

Some of our members houses were completely burnt down and have lost everything. Eight families were evacuat- ed to churches or other church members’ houses. Our church members are serving the affect- ed members. Due to the fi re, smoke, and lack of electricity, small businesses are closing down and some church mem- bers are facing economic dif- fi culties. As a result, donations have not been coming into the church, so the ministry and the administration of the church are suffering. Due to the eco-

nomic diffi culties of the church members, the church has made a small amount of offerings and has been struggling in min- istry and church operations. For this reason we would appreciate any dona-


tions. If you are willing and interested in helping those who have been affected, please feel free to call or send me an e- mail. Thank you for your con- cern. Pastor Lee Young-son ~ Santa Rosa! CELL 707-694- 4279 ~ kingdomysl@gmail. com. Location: Sonoma Kore- an Babtist Church 81 W. Cotati Ave, Cotati, CA 94931 Publishers note: Lee is one of

my neighbors in Santa Rosa. I let him know that many of our readers are my friends and that I would reach out to all of you who could help in anyway you can. He is a very, very good genuine man who deeply cares about all of humanity!

Hi Paul Doyle, this is me here, Ed Castiglioni, I live in Sebastopol. I am a volunteer on the historic WWII Liberty Ship, the SS Jeremiah O’Brien docked at Pier 45 SF. Several times a year this historic ship sails the bay. This National Historic Landmark is a living museum and is open to the public 7 days a week. We are all volunteers that dedicate our time to keep her alive and well. It takes hundreds of hours and public support to keep us afl oat. All the cruises we take are dependent upon the generous support from public donations. Sonoma County “Upbeat Times” can help us by spreading the word, join us for a cruise or just take the ferry into SF for the day, hop on a street car, and tour the ship docked at Pier 45. It is a

great way to spend a day in SF. ~ Ps: This ship was the set of “ground zero” for the Blue Angles show in early October where they fl ew directly overhead. If Upbeat Times readers need more info about the O’Brien, please contact me or call 707-322-8793
