Good friends are better than gold


Hello everyone.

This has been a great week for us at the center. One of our ladies was supposed to get to come home after spending time in the nursing home for rehab. Welcome home, Loreva Fields.

Sue Williams came through her surgery fine, now for a fast recovery. Hope she doesn’t need chemo and radiation, at least not for too long. We love you, Sue. Also, thanks to her friends who were with her at the hospital. Good friends are better than gold.

Tuesday, we had our class as usual. It has been very informative.

Thursday was senior day at Camp Nathanael. It is absolutely beautiful over there. It was my first time visiting. There were lots of different counties represented. The largest group was from Letcher County.

A group from Illinois was there to entertain us. The group was ages 11 months to ???. The kids sang and played instruments. They also did a little skit. There were beautiful readings, singings, stories and art.

One lady did a chalk drawing of miners inside the mine digging for treasure. When she finished, they dimmed the house lights and turned a blue light on the picture and it showed the hand of God pointing at a Bible, our greatest treasure. Just gorgeous.

Going from our center were Eulah Miller, Harold Day, Fay Herron, Margie Sturgill and myself. Cathy Ingram drove us of course.

They served us a meal of meatloaf, parsleyed potatoes, green beans, coleslaw and biscuits. They serve family style, which was very nice.

I went to Country Cabin II at Norton, Va. They have great music and a it is a lot of fun. They do not allow drinking or vulgar language. On May 3 at 6 p.m., they are having a fundraiser. Benny Jones and CMT Country along with others will be providing the music. It will be a variety of country oldies and bluegrass. Come on out and give a listen. They will be selling food and drinks. All proceeds go to the cancer fund.

Friday was a luncheon for the windup of Faith Moves Mountains. They had wonderful success with their cease smoking classes. Even though I wasn’t an active member, I got to help with the decorations.

We had the luncheon at a room in the basement of the Harry M. Caudill Library. I was not aware of the beautiful rooms and facilities available at the library. I intend to find out more about it, its uses and what it costs to rent.

I want to say a word about the Kingscreek Community Park. It is one of the most beautiful and well-kept parks around. The people who keep the calendar of reservations are so nice and will help you as much as they possibly can. Bill Meade has done a good job of organization on this one. Way to go, Bill.

They are also still selling the memorial bricks at the park. I will get more information on all the things available at the park.

That’s about all for this week. Love each other and smile.
