We were glad to have Mollie Goldston, Rita Reynold’s neighbor, visit with us last week. Mollie also entertained us with her piano talent.

Nancy Pierson, Yvonne Cotton, Patricia West, Frank Martinez, and Dorothy Holder celebrated their November birthdays’ with us at the birthday party last week.

Frank Martinez and Dorothy Holder won prizes for being the oldest man and woman in the birthday group. Sydney Gantt, Patricia West’s great, great niece, accompanied Patricia to the party. Amber Shepard, our kitchen staff, also had a November birthday. Happy Birthday to all our November babies.

Gary Marks will be at the Citizen’s Center at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday, Dec. 10, to give a short program and answer any questions pertaining to the forming of a hospital district. He will give his program after the second round of the “42” tournament. If you have questions after reading the articles in the paper, this would be a great time to get some answers.

Don’t forget our 9th Annual Trust Fund Christmas Party for Citizens’ age 60 and over at the Citizen’s Center at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 12. The entertainment this year will be Truman Hudson and Riggin. Santa will visit and there will be door prizes and lots of fun.

There will be “42” tournaments on Dec. 3 and 10. The reason is because the Hinkle Family Gospel Group and Christmas lunch will be served on the 17th, which would have been a tournament day.
