This week has been so good. We can look out and see the sunshine. We can feel the gentle breeze. There’s probably more winter to come, but this sure feels good.
We had our potluck Feb. 8. There was enough food to feed all of Eolia. Three people came from the Letcher Manor, and we played Bingo and had root beer and orange floats.
Faye Halberstadt won the bird feeder, Elaine Mc- Farland won a battery light, and Archie Hubbard won a pot of red tulips that he quickly gave to Nancy.
We had fun, and they talked to us about the nursing home rehab part. They talked to us about the cause of accidents in the home. The number one cause is falls.
We don’t want to have to stay in the nursing home, but we never know when we could get hurt. If we did, we would just stay in the bed.
Our next potluck is March 8, and someone is coming from the Social Security office to be with us. Come out and join us if you can.
The seniors went to Kingscreek last week to take their medicines and let a pharmacist look at them.
Ruby got her quilt out of the frame and we are putting a picture of it in the paper. It sure is pretty. They have done two more baby quilts and now they have an embroidery quilt in the frame.
Our prayer list includes Johnny Maggard. Remember Jean and Bill Hampton and Jean Hunsucker. Also pray for Columbus Sturgill. I’m sure there are more sick people, because so many people have had this old flu. The school kids have been sick and caused the teachers to get sick too.
Remember to pray for the coal miners. They face danger every day.
So long from the Oven Fork Senior Citizens Center. Keep warm and stay well.
