  • Sunrise Volunteers - September 2, 2015

    The old Sunrise Manor opened in 1967 and, almost immediately, people from the community wanted to be involved in helping. Residents have a better quality of life. Sons and daughters, brothers and sisters at first, then people that just wanted to help those less fortunate than themselves.

    Some of these volunteers became residents themselves. I know two past volunteers who are currently residents now. You just never know in life when you may need help.

    Thought for the week:  One of the simplest ways to stay happy is letting go of the things that make you sad.

    Out and About in Hodgenville: On August 24, my cousin Rosetta LaFollette and I worked the booth of LaRue County Chamber of Commerce at the Kentucky State Fair. I love doing that, met some interesting people, which happen to be kin to me or kin to the person that was just at the booth, and mostly from New Haven, what a small world.
