VOTING IN KGC CLUBHOUSE:   Kathy Dent, Supervisor of Elections, is expecting a record voter turnout for the election on November 4th.   She is requesting that we park all vehicles away from the entrance to the polling room so voters may use the spots closest to the door.   (The voters use the door on the Avenue of Queens side of the Club House.)   Also due to the congestion, please do not use the video library on that Tuesday.       Thank you,   Charles Clotfelter, General Manager

HEALTHLINE:   Memorials for J. Francis Colacino, 232 Duchess Ave., who passed away October 14, 2008, may be sent to T.R.A.I.D. 3390 Brooks Lane, Chadwicks, NY 13319, or to a charity of your choice.

THANK YOU:   Dear Friends:   Both Jim and I would like to thank everyone for all of your care and concern, prayers and cards.   I am some better but I'm still being treated for two compression fractures in my lower spine.   It will take time and patience for them to heal.   We are so lucky to be living in such a wonderful community - our own little "paradise."       Sincerely, Jeanne Steele
