Seventeen amazing Senior Citizens met together for fun, food and fellowship Thursday at Central Baptist Church. Those present were Raye Spivey, Sandra Spivey, Jane Carpenter,

Linda Taylor, Fonetta Simmons, Sue Wood, Elizabeth Neason, Neenah German, Wilma Lee, Alma Stewart, Helen Harvey, Wayne Sharp, Glenda Gambini, Pat Jones, Ella Stanizewski, Gayla Lind and Janice Bilbrey. They all seemed to enjoy the cranberry chicken lunch that was served. Menu for Thursday, Dec. 7th will be chicken and dumplings, cabbage, cornbread and gelatin, tea and milk.

Everyone said they had an enjoyable Thanksgiving with family and friends. We have so much to be thankful for.

Bingo was called by Sue Wood and Elizabeth Neason and the winners were Neenah German, Glenda Gambini, Jane Carpenter, Alma Stewart, Elizabeth Neason and the Blackout winner was Alma Stewart.

Sorry to hear that we've lost one of our dear Senior Citizens of Thornton, Mrs. Nancy Stanley. Our sympathy goes out to this family. Linda Watson is back in the hospital and we wish her a speedy recovery.

Thanks again Raye and Sandra Spivey for all you do to help with the serving and cleaning up every week. Thanks to Central Baptist Church for having us and to Joe Neason for the ice.

The Senior Citizen group was well represented at the ribbon cutting of the former Farmers State Bank Building to the City of Thornton. The City Mayor, Kenneth Capps, City Council members, City Policeman and City Judge and other helpers served up some delicious burgers and hot dogs to a crowd of about 75 people.

Thanks again and hope to see you at Senior Citizens, each Thursday at noon.
