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.
The Chicken and Dumplings we had Thursday, was well received with the added veggies to our salad and the three flavors of ice cream donated from the ice cream supper at Central Baptist Church.
The Thornton Masonic Lodge #486, hosted a fish fry fundraiser this past Saturday evening at the Mary Helen Nance Community Center. The fundraiser’s purpose was to raise funds to purchase a heating and air conditioning for the new Joe Ray Brown Masonic Hall presently under construction.
Attendance is still great these days with twenty coming for lunch Thursday. Those present being Ann Brown, Elizabeth Neason, Roger and Linda Watson, Neennah German, Snuffy Bennett, Fonetta Simmons, Earl Mask, Woody, and Sue Wood, Wayne Sharp, Lorene Stembridge and friend, Billie Dixon from Giddings, Alma McCurry, Doris Lemley, James Lenamond, Hank and Elle Staniszewski, Janice Bilbrey and myself. We missed Wilma Lee out due to having been exposed to Covid, Gayla Linda and Glenda Gambini also were not there. We missed you and hope you will be back Thursday. Wayne said he would be having a procedure done on one of his legs and we will be praying for him.
