Saturday, April 8th  there will be a presentation on Making Health Care Decisions at the Gridley Fellowship Hall from 9 – 11 am.   The presentation will cover health care choices, end of life decisions and help brethren navigate through these many decisions.  Many times, we are faced with a sudden change in health.
