Hi Darrell and Barb --- Welcome back from touring and healing from the tour.

The info about the Chinese school memorial fund for Jon Lindsay (he died on March 27) can be viewed at http://www.regenttour.com/school/index.asp . The program was 'discovered' by Pat Silveria of Brookings OR (she lives about 5 miles from where Jon has a 13 acre undeveloped lot) who has lead many tours to China and who obtained the Chinese medicines for Jon. Pat has visited one of the schools and says that it was extremely well organized and managed. She has been a big supporter and promoter of the school program among her US friends. You can see her and learn about her seige with bladder cancer by going to her website at http://blcwebcafe.org/stories/pat.asp . She also has a website about some of her experiences in

China which is kind of interesting and can be reached from the above site or directly at: http://community-2.webtv.net/Pat_Silveria/Nihaowodepengyou/ . Pat is a rather unorthodox but very interesting and dedicated person; she runs an ice cream store in Brookings. She says that the best way to contribute to the school is to send contributions in Jon's name to 'Jiang' (email address: regent@ij.net) at the following USA office of the tour group which supports the school (even though a different USA address appears on the website):

Regent Tour
c/o Jon Lindsay Memorial
2102 Camp Indianhead Rd
Land O Lakes, Florida 34639

A number of us are going to be sending in contributions. Their website (first one above) describes the program and support levels they recommend (especially on the "FAQ" page); $60 supports one child for a year. Call or email me if you have any questions. We hope to get together with both of you soon -- especially since we are going to be nearer neighbors soon.

Dick
