August BOOK CLUB:
The Keeper of Lost Things
by Ruth Hogan
Anthony Peardew is the keeper of lost things. Forty years ago, he carelessly lost a keepsake from his beloved fiancée, Therese. That very same day, she died unexpectedly. Brokenhearted, Anthony sought consolation in rescuing lost objects—the things others have dropped, misplaced, or accidently left behind—and writing stories about them. Now, in the twilight of his life, Anthony worries that he has not fully discharged his duty to reconcile all the lost things with their owners. As the end nears, he bequeaths his secret life’s mission to his unsuspecting assistant, Laura, leaving her his house and all its lost treasures, including an irritable ghost.

TUESDAY TUNE UPS
For those who are unfamiliar with our group of walkers, we are small in numbers, but have been around for 8 years. During the nice weather, you will see us on the Yankee Woods path, or just walking the neighborhood. We have been very flexible on our schedule since Covid, so it may not be Tuesday that we are walking. If you are interested in joining us for a 3-mile jaunt, please see Deb Frawley. See you soon!
