Hello again to all you Senior Citizens and friends. Hope this finds all of you well and avoiding the COVID-19. Seems it isn’t getting any better all around us. We are happy to say congratulations to Janice Bilbrey on being a grandmother again to a precious little girl. Also, Bobbie Reynolds reached her 92nd birthday on July 16 and she became great-grandmother a coup days after that to a little baby girl. We want to congratulate them on both births. Sorry to report that this week Bobbie was entered into Limestone Medical Center but seems to be doing better. Also reported to me that Linda Kennedy Watson is now home from LTC Nursing home and our prayers are still with her for better health. There may be others but haven’t been reported to me.
Here I am back and running again. My modem was out on the computer for a while and had to have a new one installed. Ho-Hum, you know how that goes, if not one thing, then another.
Voices for Children, the Court Appointed Special Advocate or CASA volunteer program, needs community members to serve as advocates for local abused and neglected children. In the past two weeks alone, nearly 20 children have entered foster care in Limestone and Freestone counties and that number is anticipated to rise in the coming weeks. Voices for Children needs local volunteers who are willing to rise up and speak on behalf of foster children.
“And the Beat Goes On” as the song says. The Thornton Senior Citizens being served hasn’t missed a Thursday serving food to it’s seniors that desire to drive by the church and pick up their food. Some days a few get their meals dropped by their house for them due to the sweet and personal care shown by Janice Bilbrey, Geri Levassar and Donna Lloyd. Geri and Donna have been faithful to help manager, Janice with the food each wee. Thanks for the delivery from Groesbeck Senior Citizen Center each week for preparing and sending it each week.
