Special to the Reporter

We now have all of our defibrillators in place thanks to our wonderfully supportive community. We have one on each of the transport vans and one in the center. Thank you again to Chip and Regina Harrison for all your help and support.

We celebrated Thanksgiving early with our annual Thanksgiving lunch of turkey and dressing, gravy, corn, green beans, rolls and pumpkin pie on Wednesday. We should just about be hungry again come Thanksgiving Day.

We have one more spot on our Sam Moon trip this Saturday, so let us know if you’re interested. Act soon before it gets filled.

Our Christmas lunch is scheduled for Wednesday, Dec. 8, at noon and our annual Christmas party will be on Friday, Dev. 10, beginning at 6 p.m. We have a sign-up sheet at the center or you can call for reservations. The Christmas party is for all Somervell County residents 60 and over. Christmas dinner will be served with live entertainment, door prizes and best of all, it’s free.

We will be having a couple of other Christmas activities next month, including caroling for some of our homebound folks and a drive around the county to look at Christmas lights. Further details to come.

Don’t forget we still have bluegrass and gospel music every third Tuesday at 6 p.m. (Nov. 16 is the next one). Bring a potluck dish and come on down.

We are still having exercise every Monday and Thursday at 10:30 a.m. Don’t let that pumpkin pie go to your waist. Come exercise with our ladies.

The winners of last week’s “42” Tournament: Veda Gosdin and Nancy Moore took first place. Floyd Flanary and Dortha Beck took second. Roy Mercer and James Kelley won third and Zula Hunter and Cora Harkins took fourth place. Others playing in the tournament were: Eddie and Billie Flanary, Loveda Swaim and Grady May, Janelle Gartrell and Alice Lance, Dorothy Jo Osborn and Ila Verne Stull, Pat Thompson and Roger Jordan and Trey Welch and Ann Parham.

Visiting the center last week was Daryl Spradley, who was a guest of Bob Streiff. It’s always nice to see new faces and make them part of our family.

Our condolences go out to Center Director Pam Baker and her family at the loss of her husband, Billy Paul Baker.
