1. Pilgrim Bob Bakman went to see his heart surgeon on March 3rd regarding the ongoing problem of getting his April 2022 5-way heart bypass surgery to heal properly. The doctor cleaned and bandaged the operation area and told him to keep it clean and dry. He advised Bob to slowly return to normal activities and discharged him. It has been a long 11 months and he is planning on being in Costa Mesa. Quoting some words from him – “I am on the road to recovery so bring your checkbook to the meeting to make donations toward the Moosehaven ‘AAA’ project to Moose Charities. I’M BACK!!”
