Art class makes plans for fall bazaar in Bay Minette

Posted

The week of July 9 started out busy at the Senior Center. The Flip-Flop Book Club began at 1 p.m. (always second Monday of the month).

The books “Coastal Kingdom— A History of Baldwin County, Alabama” by O. Lawrence Burnette, Jr. were brought to the meeting and several who had ordered a book stayed for the Book Club meeting. Burnette’s book, as well as our book-of-the-month, “A Christmas Promise” by Thomas Kinkaid reminded us of experiences we have had and especially those of Edgar Wright and Mildred Schram. Hope they will be with us next month. Nice to reminisce. Hope they enjoyed the critique as much as we enjoyed their shared experiences. “A Christmas Promise” introduced some new characters and led to a lot of assumptions for the last two books. The book-of-the-month for August is “A Christmas Angel” by Thomas Kinkaid. Out of all the characters in the previous books, a lot of speculation as to who the “Christmas Angel” will be. Read along with, better still, come and share your thoughts with us at our next meeting, Aug. 13.

Wednesday, July 11, was our monthly pot luck at the Senior Center. Councilman Tony Edwards was our entertainment. He played the 50’s music which everyone enjoyed. Made “those were the good ole days” come alive for us. Some of our friends from the fire department dropped by for lunch. No one from police department. We always appreciate their visits, it’s nice to be cradled with security on either side of the Senior Center. Drawing for the Pot Luck door prize was won by Sandy Sakwa (hanging basket). Also, everyone enjoyed sharing and celebrating Mabron Williams’ birthday with him. Woodie brought a cake for the celebration. I forget his age, senior moments are nice at times.

Bingo Party followed the Pot Luck was enjoyed by all. Tony and Dell joined in the fun. Sandy Sakwa called Bingo and almost everyone won a prize.

Where else can you have food, fellowship and fun in one day?

Bring a friend and join in the fun next month(always second Wednesday of the month), Aug. 8 at noon.

The Art Class is continuing with their plans for the Fall Bazaar. Drop by any Friday between 9 a.m. and 12 noon and check it out.

AARP meeting was held on July 16 at 5 p.m. Your participation would be appreciated. If you have any questions about a local chapter, please call 937-8650 and leave a message. Your call will be returned.

Tonight’s the night. Steak Nite at the Senior Center beginning at 5:30 p.m. It is also game day of the week. So plan to come and play games, bring your steak and join in the steak supper. Baked potatoes and salad furnished.

Seniors see you on the Chumuckla bus trip leaving from the First Baptist Church July 20 at 3:30 p.m. Food and fun at Farmers’ Opry, entertained by Dixie Echoes.

Also, remember we will end July with Movie Nite on July 27. Bring finger foods and enjoy the fellowship at 5 p.m., followed by movie-of-the-month. Still not sure, but will be an “oldie” but “goodie.” Come and end July, the month of fun, with us.

Thought for the week: There may be those on earth who dress better or eat better, but those who enjoy the peace of God sleep better. —- L. Thomas Holdcroft

May God bless you and keep you until we meet again!!
