  • I would like to express my appreciation for the Shipley students visit to the Cardiac Unit at Bryn Mawr Hosp on Thurs Oct 14 (?).
    Two young ladies buoyed up my spirits by their visit and gift of a decorated ceramic pumpkin. I believe they were 2nd graders.
    To the teachers, parents and volunteers
    who made this possible, you have my gratitude.
