    Thought for the week: You never know how strong you are, until being strong is your only choice.

    We had a great Thanksgiving Day with the West gang. There were 72 there this year. It was great seeing Uncle Quincy and Aunt Betty LaFollette and Harlis LaFollette. Want to say hi to Ralph and Mary Underwood in Anchorage, Alaska.

    I got Christmas decorations on front porch. I can’t believe we will be going into December this weekend. Where did the year go? I am not ready for another year to begin.

    The Homegoing celebration for Rex Thompson was held last Wednesday morning at Nelson-Edelen-Bennett Funeral Home in Vine Grove. He’s the husband to Mildred Dorsey-Thompson.

    Allen Dixon was admitted to the hospital Monday morning. Our deepest sympathy goes to the family of Mike Brown. Most of those my age went to high school with Mike. The family is in our prayers.

    Everyone was happy to see Carolyn Cox, Carlos Cox, and Mary Jackson at church on Sunday morning at First Baptist. They had been out due to illness.

  • Sunrise Volunteers

    Sunrise Volunteers turned 50 years this year. I am proud to say that my daughter Angela Smith and myself have been volunteering for 21 of those years.

    We started in June 1996 after Angela graduated from high school. We fell in love with residents, we went 8 hours a day, 3 days a week for a year until I switched over to working as Social Service Assistant. We helped out with lots of the activities including bingo, rhythm band and crafts. To see the smile on residents’ faces when they saw us was priceless.
