Seniors visit Natural Bridge and Loretta Lynn homeplace


Hello everyone from all of us at the Ermine Center. Hope everyone is doing well. We better get ready, because Old Man Winter is right around the corner.

If you are 60 or older, we would like to invite you to come out and be with us. We have lunch at 11 a.m., we play Bingo each Tuesday, we work puzzles and the ladies quilt each day, plus we play Rook and Scrabble and Wii games.

We recently went to Mountain Medical at the Ermine Plaza for a heath fair. We got flu shots and a lot of healthful information. Thank you to Julie, Angie, and Valerie for inviting us. We had a wonderful day.

A few weeks ago all of our centers got together and took 63 seniors from Letcher County and went to Van Lear to visit Loretta Lynn’s homeplace, and on our way home we stopped at the Prestonsburg Park and had a picnic. It was a beautiful day and we had a wonderful time.

Each day as we looked up toward Pine Mountain, the leaves were so beauti- ful that we decided to take the seniors and go through Little Shepherd Trail. We stopped at the overlooks and took pictures.

James Hall and Coleen Hart quoted, “The color of the trees were the colors of one of God’s paintings.”

While the weather was so beautiful, we decided to go to Natural Bridge and some of the seniors rode the skylift and some of us helped Lizzie Mae find rocks to paint. We also stopped at the gift shop for snacks.

Last week we had the Golden Arts at the Ermine Center. Seniors from all centers brought in quilts, birdhouses, canned foods, crocheting, artwork, painting, basket weaving, and photography. All the blue ribbon winners will compete next month at Hazard at the Golden Arts.

We would like to thank Geneva Adams for the pretty flowers from her garden that decorated our center this summer.

So until next time, be safe, and thank God for His many blessings.
