Slow, slow, slow. Yep, that’s what went on at our center at Ermine last week. We didn’t do very much. But Monday, Joyce Vermillion taught an art class. I think six or seven were in the class. They all painted a beautiful picture and really did well. (Not me, I don’t like to paint as I’m no artist.) She said she may start a class later if anyone wants her to.
We had a few visitors last week. Joe Walker was one of them. He came to be with us two days. Glad to have you, Joe. Come back anytime.
Colleen Hart’s flower patch quilt won a blue ribbon in the patchwork category. It also won the overall championship ribbon, which was purple. It sure was a beautiful quilt and it should have won. It was on display during Mountain Heritage week.
For the month of September, our center turned in $212.85 for the food fund.
We have a lot of things going on in the month of October. Tuesday, Oct. 5, Kayla Bentley was going to be at the center to talk to us about Cancer Awareness Month. Also, Oct. 13 we will be going to Hazard to a health fair. Oct. 21, we will go to the Golden Arts awards at the college in Hazard.
Oct. 28, we will be having an old-fashioned party and it will also be our potluck dinner. So come all you seniors, and have fun with us and bring a dish and all have a great time.
Maybe we can get a shopping trip this month too. Hope so, we’ll find out and let you know where we’ll be going.
Friday, our site manager Debbie Slone drove the bus and took us to Jenkins to the Indian Summer Festival. It was at Little Shepherd Amphitheater. First, we stopped at Hardy’s and ate lunch, then went up on the hill. We saw a lot of beautiful things, also soap making, and how one man started a fire with a flint and I think also with a rock.
Our own Judith Vermillion was painting a quilt square to be hung on the building. It will be beautiful when it is finished. It may be all ready by now.
Guess who else we saw there. Yep, our Don Fultz with his beautiful baskets. Don goes a great job making these, and some of us have one of them.
Seniors, come on by and see how we’re doing. You’ll be glad you did.
So God bless until next time.
