Ermine seniors had a great time last week.
Tuesday, we had our regular Bingo day with some very nice gifts. Some won tablecloths, dishtowels and potholders and other items. I didn’t see what everyone won.
Wednesday was just another day, an eating and talking day. Oh yes. I almost forgot that Joe Walker came to be with us. He said he really enjoyed coming to our center.
The month of May was Elder Abuse Awareness Month. We were supposed to wear silver because of it. Everyone had on some silver, and the one with the most on won the prize.
I won, but don’t tell anyone, okay? I won a beautiful set of stainless silverware. Carl Parrott won the door prize, a beautiful flower arrangement of red roses. Others who won a gift were Shirley Day, Lydia Hall, Judith Vermillion, Debbie Miranda, Andrew Sexton, Imogene Sexton and Kathy Palumbo.
Thanks to Messenger Florist for the arrangement.
It was also our potluck dinner. We had all kinds of good food and desserts. Thanks to Community Trust Bank for the beautiful cake.
Friday, we had a great surprise. Guess who came to the center? It was Patty Majority; her son brought her. Mike lives in North Carolina, and he had his daughter, Robin, with them.
It was good to see you, Patty, and looking so good. Patty has been under the weather for the last few months and I hope how soon she’ll be well and back with us.
Rhuford and Coleene Hart missed three days last week from the center as they attended the Appalachian Regional Hospital’s annual chaplins’ retreat. Rhuford serves as a chaplin at the ARH. Coleene said they had a real good time.
Say, we haven’t seen the newlyweds since the wedding. So get back to the center, you guys. The honeymoon is over.
We’re planning on a picnic, shopping trip or something soon, but the prom date has been changed from June 2 to June 9. So we’re looking forward to that too.
We’re still young enough to go! Go! Go! So come on, you seniors, and go with us.
Be good and stay pretty. God bless until next time.
