GRAVETTE We are having nice November weather but it may change soon.
The community Thanksgiving dinner was a good success as usual. There were a good number of people there. Lots of food and some left after everyone had eaten. It was all good, so many different kinds of dishes. Steve Tucker gave the welcome and said how nice the building is being kept. It is used a lot and they like that. Steve gave the prayer before we ate.
Patti King of Lowell came over in the afternoon on Thursday and visited her parents, Jack and Sylvia Tucker. She went to Ron and Debbie Sims’ and they went out to eat. Patti spent the night with them and they went shopping on Saturday before she returned home. They had a niceweekend.
Steve and Susan Tucker came home with me from the dinner and visited a while. They brought my birthday gift, a new DVD player. My other one had not been working good so they replaced it.
Don Crawley is home and doing better after spending some time in the Gravette Hospital with pneumonia. Glad he is home and doing better.
Tracy Warren came over and visited me Sunday afternoon. I enjoyed her visit as always.
Gary and Helen Chism took me out to eat on Thursday evening for my birthday. I enjoyed that. My great-grandson, Billy Cook, was with us.
Clifton Tucker called me one day this week. They aren’t coming over for Thanksgiving because of work on Friday. They hope they make it over for Christmas and so do I.
Maysville E.H. Club members, we will not be having our Christmas party in the home of Ellen Casey on Dec. 10 because of sickness in her family. It will be at the community building. We may have to change the date. Orpha will find out and let everyone know. Melinda Crawley is hostess and I will be helping her.
Hope everyone has a good, safe Thanksgiving with family and friends.
Seniors Fun Days Are Scheduled At Maysville
The Maysville Extension Homemakers Club met Thursday afternoon, Nov. 19, at the Community Center. Orpha Wardlaw, president, called the meeting to order at 1 p.m. We pledged allegiance to the U.S. flag. Jewel Lukens read two devotional poems entitled “Nobody Prayed” and “Somebody Prayed”.
Keeping the year’s theme of Healthy Living Gwen Singleton led the group in doing some bending exercises.
Orpha gave the eyeopener of “Tips for Better Muffins”. She also gave several examples of finishing seams when sewing.
Carol Loux showed a “Nutty Turkey” placemat made of various nuts glued together in the shape of a turkey. It was very cute.
Thirteen members and one guest, Mrs. Singleton, answered roll call. We sang a belated birthday song to Katherine Tucker. She read the minutes of the October meeting and gave the treasurer’s report.
The members turned in a number of hours of voluntary labor. Sylvia Tucker gave a report on the use of the Community Building. Nikki Crawley reported on some window reinforcements needed in the gym. It will be taken care of soon.
Plans were reviewed for the Thanksgiving appreciation supper on Saturday night, Nov. 21, a meal we have each year. Everyone was invited to come, bring a side dish and enjoy visiting and group singing.
Jewel Crawley drew the quarter package brought by Bert Ballmann.
The Maysville Community Fun Day for Senior Citizens, discussed in the last report, will be held on the first and third Thursday of each month. Games are being planned and a noon meal is available for $3.00. The meal needs to be ordered a week before. More details will be available in December.
Each one is to bring a dollar gift to our Christmas party for a game. Also bring another gift for the exchange if you want to take part in the drawing.
