Hello everyone, from all of us at the Ermine Senior Citizens. We hope everyone is doing great and enjoying this beautiful weather. Summer is almost here.
We have been enjoying ourselves at the Ermine Center. We eat lunch at 11 a.m., play Bingo every Tuesday, have puzzles, Scrabble and Rook games. So if you are 60 or older, come out and be with us.
We want to thank Community Trust Bank and Abby Wynn for the birthday cake we get each month for our potluck dinner.
We also want to thank Carla, Greta, and all the facility at Letcher Manor Nursing Home for a wonderful day filled with lots of fun. As everyone knows, May was Elder Abuse Awareness Month and we learned a lot of information on elder abuse. Janet Patrick and friends sang a beautiful song. We played cornhole, ring toss, Bingo and had door prizes, and the staff served us a delicious lunch. So a big thank you to each and every one.
We also want to thank Lizzie M. Wright for the beautiful flowers she has brought to our center each week to decorate the tables.
May is the month that we celebrate the Senior Games at Knott County Sportsplex. All eight counties come together to complete for medals.
We are so proud of the Ermine Seniors this year.
