HURRAH for SBUF! We have two new members: Cy and Vivian Amrich. They bring with them their 9 year old son, Nicholas. Take a little time to get to know them better.

Frank Paulsen was a very active member of SBUF for years. Frank had emergency surgery on August 1st, to remove his stomach and spleen. After some initial problems requiring return visits to the hospital, he is now gaining strength and stamina and able to enjoy going out to restaurants, etc.
