Daulton said; “It’s a simple sto- ry about a community solving a problem by coming together to use art and volunteerism to bring out the best in both and create something truly magical. –I wanted to tell this story because of its simple beauty.” Te Albany His- toric Carousel & Museum is still creating more ani- mals: 33 are com- plete, the plan is for 52,--all carved and painted by hands of those who love this project. (Agape at work.) Te history of Alba-

ny, Oregon shows that the Mon- teith brothers from Albany, New York, arrived in 1847. Tey pur- chased a claim of 320 acres from Hiram Snead for $400 and one

horse. Aſter plotting out 60 acres for a town, they named it Alba- ny. Today, their beloved Historic Carousel & Museum, as Wendy Kirby hoped it would, is fast be- coming a much- loved tourist des- tination for not only all in Wil- lamette Valley but nationally, too.

In Santa

Rosa, our en- tire family is grateful


all the kind, positive, cheerful profes-

sional people

and volunteers, and especially to Dr. Gregory Sacher, a giſted surgeon, and his special team, and Dr. Monica Ferguson, all at St. Joseph Health Network and Santa Rosa Memorial Hospital,

for helping our beloved family member regain her health. As Albert Schweitzer wrote

about “agape,” when we cannot find words to express profound gratitude, the absolute neces- sity exists, to try, in our turn, to show great kindness to one and all with whom we are in contact, near and far. Inevitably, kindness begets kindness. Te best way of life.

In Lambarene, the Congo,

Schweitzer remained, working for others the rest of his life. How charming to know that a huge, ugly old pelican bird “adopted” the good doctor. Schweitzer finally agreed and

named it: “Parsifal”. Never listen- ing to anyone but his master, the bird and the doctor would go for walks together at the end of long, difficult days. Peace. Too hot to cook? Consider peel-

ing fresh fruit. Melting a pot of dark chocolate. Have a sweet dipping feast with those you love around you. ~~~Ellie

Goodness is about

character - integrity, honesty, kindness, generosity, moral

courage, and the like. More than anything else, it is about how

we treat other people. Dennis Prager
