The 55+ Club met Wednesdays April l0 and April l7 in the War Memorial Building. Jony Thomas gave a bit of trivia as she recalled April l0, l947, when a tornado struck Higgins, where she lived. As she got up on about April l0, 2013, she had flashbacks as weather conditions were so similar; and she was most thankful April l0, 2013 did not produce such destruction.
Everyone was glad to see Lynsey Been back to minister to health needs with Accolade Home Health Care. It is always good to have Lynsey and we get good visits with her during lunch. Brenda Vermillion also stopped by to see if anyone needed forms to fill out for the Viles of Life program. If you need that service, contact her at Emergency Management.
President Colene Butler has contacted the school concerning essays that will be coming to the 55+ committee; then determination can be made as to the scholarship recipient.
March showed 126 volunteer hours as recorded from the club. John Dale and CJ Kelly went to the RSVP Banquet held for area volunteer participants, and reported a successful gathering of area wide volunteers. They enjoyed the meal, the ‘magician’ entertainment program and the receiving of 10 year pins as recognition for their participation.
