Slow … is what our  CHS  Website
chooses  to  be,  at  times.
It is a test of our patience
and ability to calmly wait
while the little spinner wheel
tells us the page is loading.
Enjoy  !

Any resemblance between our home-style website
and a modern ‘professionally done’ process is unintentional.
Our purpose is only to please our members and friends,
and to say …. “We appreciate hearing from you
from  time  to  time,  …  especially if you move.

Written  by  Andy Rooney,   a man who had
the gift of saying so much with so few words.
Andy Rooney used to be on 60 Minutes TV show.

I’ve learned  ….  (27)
That a smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks.

I’ve learned  ….  (28)
That when your newly born grandchild
holds your little finger in his little fist, you’re hooked for life.

Our  country  is  now   241   years old!
