UPDATE: Steve Buck

About a week ago, past president Steve Buck had a spill from his bicycle while riding near Buffalo, NY.  He suffered a fractured skull and shoulder.  He recovered sufficiently to make the drive home on the 17th.  Today however, Cindy has posted that they have discovered a colloid cyst in his brain.  They will be visiting with a neurosurgeon in the next several days to learn more about that.

Steve has been an important part of this council for many, many years, please keep Steve, Cindy and the rest of the Buck family in your prayers.
