Ermine Center has a big week

Last week was a very busy week at Ermine Senior Citizens Center.

Monday our visitors were Sandy from KRADD who stopped in to say hi; Jim Ward, our county judge, who visited some of our homebound people with our site manager, Debbie Slone; and Mayor James Wiley Craft was the kitchen help. We enjoyed having them.

Tuesday was our big day, St. Patrick’s Day, and our potluck dinner. Bob Mayhew won Mr. Leprechaun and Judith Vermillion, Miss Leprechaun. Each received a $10 gift certificate and a green hat.

Doris Bentley won the lovely basket of flowers donated by Hometown Florist owner Stanley Holbrook. Thanks, Stanley.

Lydia, George and Betty won the other gifts.

Our sheriff, Danny Webb, and Judge Jim Ward were there. We had plenty of good food and desserts and a large crowd, though I didn’t get the number this time.

Wednesday was Senior Arts and Crafts Day. We had the Oven Fork and Colson centers to visit with us. A lady from the Oven Fork Center won first prize for her beautiful quilt. I didn’t get her name.

Coleen Hart won first prize for a baby quilt. Coleen won a total of 11 blue ribbons. Vina Lucas won second place, a red ribbon, for her quilt; Flo Mayhew won first place for an oil painting, and also won first place for her afghan; Patricia Holbrook won first place for poetry; and Bob Mayhew won third place for an oil painting.

Eugene Slone and Judge Ward were there for the occasion. We had a great day.

Friday, seniors went to Pikeville to do some shopping. We ate lunch at Shoney’s and had a good trip and a wonderful day.

If you haven’t been with us at our center, see what you’re missing? Come on and get out and join us in the fun. We would like to see you there. Come on, guys and gals.

God bless until next time.
