The Center was all abuzz Thursday when I arrived because of the two visitors, Sheriff Murray Agnew and Deputy Shannon Rousey, were there visiting and answering questions. We appreciated them taking their time out to come sit down and have lunch with us and answering questions from the Seniors. Seniors present were Ann Brown, Neennah German, Snuffy Bennett, Alma McCurry, Fonetta Simmons, Gayla Lind, Gay McBride, Roger Watson, Elizabeth Neason, James Lenamond, Doris Lemley, Earl Mask, Elle and Hank Staniszewski and their grandson, Janice Bilbrey and myself.
Only fifteen gathered last Thursday but it was a very lively group and had a lot of fun especially playing bingo. The winners in Bingo were going two at a time every game and Alma McCurry won two and then won the Black Out as well. Sorry, I didn’t write all the winners down and at this time I can’t remember all of them. Those kinds of remembering days are in the past and it’s called SENIOR MEMORY!
Come to Oletha Jamboree, Saturday night, October 9th, if you enjoy country, gospel and a little bluegrass music. The music will start at 6 p.m. with the John Allred Band, then at 7 p.m. the feature band will be John Allred and his granddaughter, Coleen Allred on the fiddle and one of John’s music students, McKenzie Whipple who sings and plays. After this band, it will be the Baldwin Band at 8 p.m. It should be a good entertaining night.
We had a good day at the Senior Citizens get-together last week in spite of the fact that we had lost two of our dear Senior Ladies, being Glenda Gambini and Linda Watson. Both so dear to our hearts and I personally had known and been friends with Linda all of her life. We extend our sincere sympathy to both families.
