Thornton Senior News

By Jane Carpenter

The Thornton Senior Citizens met Thursday July 20th, for a really good lunch with 24 present being Raye and Sandra Spivey, Jack Thompson, Merilyn Simpson, Ernestine Audd, Bobbie Reynolds, Elizabeth Neason, Sue Wood and Ann Carr (Limestone Medical Center Volunteers), Bob Walters, Joe Brown, Linda Taylor, Ann Brown, Linda and Roger Watson, Wayne Sharp, Helen Harvey, Alma McCurry, Alma Farley, Jane Carpenter, Sue Gambini, Wilma Spivey, Pat Jones and Janice Bilbrey, Thornton Senior Citizen Leader.

Our lunch was outstanding being steak fingers, mashed potatoes & gravy, steamed veggies, rolls and butterscotch pudding as well as tomatoes, onions & cucumbers prepared and brought by Sue Wood and delicious watermelon brought by Alma McCurry.

Since it was Bobbie Reynolds 89th birthday, Sue Wood made and brought her a delicious strawberry Happy Birthday cake and all sang Happy Birthday to her. She has been several weeks now recuperating from a broken collarbone. Guess our sweet Neenah German has gone back to her home away from home, we miss you.

Jane Carpenters great granddaughter, Whitley Truett is playing in State Tournament in Axtell and she and Elizabeth were all excited about going to another game that very evening as they were playing the Belton Knockouts. They've won 2 games and lost 1 at this time. Lots of talk about the very hot weather we are having, so everyone try to stay cool and hydrated.

The Hospital Volunteer ladies called several games of bingo and the winners were Joe Brown, Alma McCurry, Jack Thompson, Bobbie Reynolds, Helen Harvey, Wilma Lee and Pat Jones.

Hats off to the ladies who pitch in and help getting the food served and also help to clean up after the meal. Thanks to Central Baptist for the use of the building and Joe Neason for ice.

Of interest to the community also is that the foundation to the new Community Center has been poured and hopefully the structure will soon be going up.

Come on out and join we seniors as we have a good thing going with the food and fellowship.

A thought: “If you find 60 degrees a little chilly, you may live in Texas".
