Women’s health issues discussed

Kentucky Laureate RHO Sorority met April 16 at the home of Jolinda Wright. The home was decorated throughout with handpainted Easter eggs, and rabbits in beautiful flower arrangements.

Hostesses Cheryl Hall, Ann Estep and Janet Tucker served a delicious assortment of spring salads, candies and a butterscotch delight for dessert.

Present were Irene Smith, Liz Lee, Vernell Mullins, Mahala Frazier, Norma Collins, Sally Caudill, Penny Combs, Ann Reynolds, Brenda Quillen, Shannon Mullins, Ann Hall, Jo Champion, Ellen Compton and Earlene Williams.

Dr. Katrina Slone, gynecologist, and Carrie Lee Hall, nurse practitioner and midwife, spoke to the group about women’s heath issues and frequently asked questions about gynecological problems.

Thanks to both for taking the time to come and keep us up to date on women’s health. Each one present received a bag of health products, and we do appreciate their generosity.

March 30, we traveled to J.W. School in Wise, Va. to see “The Great Gatsby,” a portrayal of the jazz age. It was wonderful and the costumes, fantastic. (Love the 1920s.) It is required reading in many high school and college English classes, and is now an American classic.

Enjoying the evening were Vernell Mullins, Sandy Banks, Irene Smith, Janet Tucker, Cheryl Hall, Sally Caudill, Ann Estep, Patty Nantz, Jo Champion and Earlene Williams.

April 14, we went to Pikeville to the Jenny Wiley Theater to see “Steel Magnolias,” a Southern comedy about real life situations. We had dinner at Bank 253.

Seeing the play were Vernell Mullins, Janet Tucker, Mahala Frazier, Sally Caudill, Ellen Compton, Ann Estep, Jo Champion, Ann Hall, Irene Smith, Jolinda Wright, and guests Clayshan Black and Leigh Blankenbecker.
