A little bird told me that Kay Alston is planning on being at our meeting Thursday, Feb. 20, to announce her campaign for City Council Woman of Thornton and say a few words about her thoughts about the future of the City of Thornton. Everyone interested in hearing her speak is invited to come and hear what she has to say. Thanks to all who help in any way concerning the Senior Citizens, not just in Thornton, but the entire County of Limestone. We have a long waiting list of Senior Citizens who are, want and need to be on the Meals on Wheels program and need meals delivered to their homes. Lack of funds, transportation and volunteers at this point are keeping us from fulfilling the needs of all those. Any contribution you can make toward this goal would certainly be appreciated. Thought: We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures that we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open.
