The Ermine Senior Citizens Center had its weekly Bingo game last week, and lots of nice gifts were won.
July 29 was our shopping trip to Wise, Va. We had two buses to take the seniors. We shopped at the Super Wal-Mart, Magic Mart, then we ate lunch at the steak house in Norton.
It was Rhuford Hart’s birthday (Rhuford, I won’t tell your age), and they celebrated in the party room.
Two of the waitresses, along with the seniors, sang “Happy Birthday” to him.
Jim Craft, you were really appreciated for going shopping with us. Plan on going to Pikeville too, when we go. I think it will be on Aug. 7.
We miss Eugene Slone not going on the trips with us. As we came back, we stopped at a fruit market to buy vegetables. We had a great time.
The quilters aren’t getting to quilt much, as Dorothy York is very sick.
Gracie Wynn and Joe Walker have been on a tour to Pigeon Forge with Tootie Seals’s tour bus. Joe said they had a wonderful time.
Also, Vina Lucas’s daughter and granddaughter from Lexington have been home visiting, and when she went back, her daughters from Louisville came up and stayed three or four days with her. They had some good times while here.
I hope you quilters will get back to quilting, as we miss you when you’re not quilting.
Our worker Ann Adams and husband, John, have been to Chicago, Ill., on vacation. They were gone a week. You guys have had enough vacations this year (just kidding).
Ann has been off sick, and I hope how soon she’ll be OK and back to work.
Our site manager Debbie Slone drove the bus last Friday and took the kids to Riverside Park for Kids’ Day.
The Ermine Senior Citizens Center and Debbie Slone would like to thank Brandon and Chris Slone for all the hard work you’ve done at the center. Chris told us that last Friday was his last day to work, as he’s going back to school.
Good luck, Chris. He is the son of Eugene Slone, who works for the Sheriff’s Department.
Come on, seniors, and join us. We need you. God bless until next time.
