We keep having good attendance at Senior Citizens each week, even with a few missing this last Thursday. Reported to me that Glenda Gambini is in hospital and has had surgery and we need to remember her in prayers. We also missed Wilma Lee, Linda and Roger Watson being with us. We welcomed someone new to the fold, Mrs. Gay McBride. She was even a first time winner at Bingo and promises to be back this week. Others present were Lorene Stembridge, Elizabeth Neason, Fonetta Simmons, Snuffy Bennett, Wayne Sharp, Earl Mask, Gayla Lind, Alma McCurry, Sue and Woody Wood, Doris Lemley, James Lenamond, Hank and Elle Staniszewski, Neennah German, Janice Bilbrey and Myself. We’ve been missing Helen Harvey and Jo Ann Diamond, hope to see them back soon. Hope I haven’t forgotten anyone.

Congratulations to these lucky ones.
Thornton Chamber of Commerce hosted its very first ever Annual Tribute to Thornton Cornhole and Texas 42 tournaments on Sat. Aug. 21 at the Thornton Slab. Many people gathered to enter the tournament and try their hand at 42 and cornhole for cash payouts and trophies. Fish plates were also sold.
Thursday was a good day with sixteen seniors gathered for lunch and enjoyment. We just never know what kind of surprises are going to come our way. Debra and Randy Franklin came bearing several dozen yard eggs to give to those who wanted them. They also shared the information about the Cornhole Toss and the 42 Tournament and the fish fry that is to be held Saturday, August 21st at the Thornton Slab beginning at 12 noon. The fish will be served around 2 p.m. Sign up for the contests at 11 a.m., so bring your partner and join in the fun. Trophies will be given to the winners. Should be fun.
