Seniors celebrate March Madness

On Tuesday, Letcher Manor representative Kathy came to our center and gave us a lot of information about Alzheimer’s disease. That is such a sad disease. I’m sure all of us have friends or family who are suffering.

We enjoyed the games and bingo Kathy did with us. Some won beautiful pots of Lucky Clover flowers. David Williams, Carl Parrott, and Janice Foster were the lucky ones. I think Carl gave his to Pat Wright. That was nice of him.

Thursday, four of our centers went to Hemphill Community Center for a Wildcat pep rally. March Madness is always fun for us. The site manager from Jenkins, Cristine, Ermine’s Debbie Slone, Debbie from Boone Fork and Kathy from Kingscreek put this together for us.

Eddie Meade, our judge pro-tem, cooked hot dogs. Boone Fork made homemade chili (it was delicious). We had potato salad, coleslaw, chips, etc. We also had blue and white cupcakes.

We thought Judge Ward was going to cook, but he got there in time to eat and we enjoyed his company. He’s always pleasant when he’s around.

Fred Young sang “Hid in the Rock” and we almost had church. He will always be remembered for that song. Rhuford led in prayer.

We had door prizes for each center. Kathy Palumbo won ours. It was a golf size UK umbrella. I’m sorry, I don’t know who won the others. We had a doctor’s appointment and had to leave early.

I would like to again thank our site managers for the good time we had Thursday. Everyone who was there said they had fun. Ruby Combs Collins got to come and visit. We enjoyed seeing her, and also Ruby Caudill was able to attend.

We lost one of our folks this week. Clarke Baker died. We always send flowers from our center when one dies. Seems we have lost a lot the past few years. We care about each other. Our center is not just a place to have lunch. We are like a family.

Thought from Daily Bread: “Christ’s sacrifice was what God desired and our sins required.”
