News from the Ermine Senior Citizens Center:
Hello from Ermine. We have so many exciting things to tell since our last writing.
The Ermine seniors experienced their first Letcher County Senior Citizens Prom last week. James and Barbara Hall were Ermine King and Queen 2007. Janice Foster was Ermine Princess 2007, and Leroy Sexton was Ermine Prince 2007. Twentyeight seniors from Ermine attended and said they had a nice evening and really enjoyed having a prom.
We thank everyone who made this event possible for our seniors. Thank you to everyone who worked so hard in preparing for this event. It was a very pleasant evening for everyone. We are looking forward to next year.
The month of June is going to be full of enjoyable and amusing activities at Ermine. Last week, we held a Coffee Cup Day. Seniors brought coffee cups to enter in three categories: biggest, oldest, funniest. Seniors brought some very nice cups and had great stories to share with everyone. The oldest cup award went to Helen Bentley. She brought a cup that she received in 1935 as a wedding present. The biggest cup award went to Jeanette Fields, and the funniest cup award went to Shirley Day. Donuts and travel coffee mugs were given out as door prizes; several people won. Each senior had a “mug shot” picture made, with a sign saying “I’ve been mugged at Ermine Center Coffee Cup Day 2007.” It was really nice to hear the stories behind each person’s coffee cup.
Our May potluck was great. Thank you, Richard and Ricky Adams, for letting us use your grill. The Ermine seniors love to fellowship and eat. Thank you, Phyllis Barker, for donating Tshirts as door prizes for our seniors. We appreciate everyone who helps our center. Thank you.
Sherd Martin, happy 100th birthday from everyone at the Ermine Senior Citizens Center. We love you, Sherd. Happy birthday to all May birthdays at the center. We celebrated with cake last week. Thank you, Coleene Hart.
