Thornton Senior News

We were down a few in numbers this past week but hopefully, everyone is well and will be able to get their lunches. Bill and Elizabeth Neason were at the doctor’s office which seems to be what we Senior Citizens do a lot of these days. Hope all goes well with them. Those able to drop by for lunches were Joe and Betty Reynolds, Roger and Linda Watson, Hank and Elle Staniszewski, Gayla Lind, Earl Mask. Fonetta Simmons, Neennah German, Ann brown, Donna Lloyd, Janice Bilbrey, and myself. Hats off to Janice Bilbrey and her helpers, Donna Lloyd and Ann Brown each week for being at the church to hand out our food to everyone. Thank you goes out to Bush Fried Chicken for our cups, lids, and straws each week and to Texas Home Health for the masks and fountain pens.

Menu for Thursday, August 27th is Rigatoni Casserole, Green Beans, Garlic Toast, Spiced Apples, and Tea. Hope you will be able to drop by and get lunch. Please call Janice by Wednesday noon of your intentions at 254/203-2769.

On August 3rd, I lost a very dear friend to a hardfought battle against cancer. Saturday, the 22nd a memorial celebration was held for Diane Hodges at her home, with some 100 friends and relatives, in attendance. Many of you will remember Diane as having worked at The Farmers State Bank in Groesbeck and then in the Thornton Branch Bank. She later worked at the First National Bank/Citizens Bank in Groesbeck.

It’s reported to me that there are several families in and around Thornton who have the Coronavirus.

We need to be in prayers for them. Let me remind you to wash your hands frequently and practice safe distancing. Wear your mask as well.

Here’s hoping everyone has an enjoyable and safe Labor Day Weekend.
