Then Faith Moves Mountains came to the center on Sept. 7 and talked to the seniors about stress management.
Sept. 14 was the monthly potluck. Everyone brought a covered dish. We had great food as usual. Two ladies celebrated birthdays, Nina Hobbs and Ruby Caudill. Happy birthday, ladies.
Our Director Trenda Kincer and Tosh Lowe joined us. Glad they got to come be with us.
Some of our seniors entered their stuff for the Golden Arts competition. Linda Curry won first place for her apple butter, and also entered a beautiful flower garden quilt. Kathleen Hammons won first place for her yard crochet, and Wilma Hampton won second place for her canned tomatoes and third place for her peaches. Next it all goes to Hazard for state competition.
The husband of one of our seniors didn’t enter his, but Johnny Curry grew a 32-pound watermelon and a huge red pepper. Good job, Johnny. We are so proud of our seniors.
