Winter finally arrived with a vengeance! I hope everyone stayed warm.
A young man from MCHC came to our center this past week. He checked blood pressure, gave us some health brochures and good bags with pedometers, pens, nail files and measuring spoons. He showed us a new kind of lift cushion that you can use in any chair. I forgot to get his name.
All the centers went to Boone Fork on Thursday for a health intervention meeting. Stacy from KRADD was supposed to speak, but she was sick and couldn’t come.
Trenda Kincer, the senior citizens director, spoke in her place. They served a good meatloaf dinner, and a Good Samaritan bought donuts for everyone. Ermine Center had 18 in attendance.
A big Valentine’s party was planned for the 14th. It will be over by the time you read this, but I’m sure it will be fun. It is also potluck day. There will be lots of good door prizes as well as food.
Jack Stallard is now in rehab at Letcher Manor. He says all of his buddies had better come visit him. You can also visit Ruby Caudill, Patty Majority and Vauldra Holbrook there.
Vauldra was one of our quilters several years ago. Ruby is the oldest at our center at 99 years young. We miss her sweet smile and hope she will be back soon.
Joe Bentley is now on our praise list. He and Doris are back at the center. We thank God for his recover and good report from the doctor.
Lorraine and Metry Kuracka are still absent as she recovers from her knee replacement.
Prayer list: Ruby Caudill, Jack Stallard, Martha Harris, Patty Majority and Clark Baker.
Thought from Daily Bread: “Because God cares about us, we can leave our cares with Him.”
