  • Thought for the week: If you fail, never give up because “fail” means first attempt in learning. The end is not the end. In fact, “end” means effort never dies. If you get no as an answer, remember that “no” means next opportunity. Positive thinking!

    Another prom has come and gone. I loved seeing all the pictures on Facebook. I can’t believe it’s time for graduation, which falls this year on my birthday, May 19. What a great day!

    Melt butter in baking pan. Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt and milk. Pour batter in pan on top of butter, cover with fruit. Do not stir, batter will rise to top as it bakes and absorbs the flavor of the fruit.

  • How wonderful it is to go to Sunrise Manor and see lingering smiles of our Spring Revival held April 19-21. Our residents were challenged by our speakers, Bro. Mike Williams, Bro. Billy Curle and Bro. Richard Binkley. They were also filled with joy with the messages of truth and love from God’s Word.

    A special thanks to all the family members, visitors and volunteers that came out each evening to encourage and support our residents. May God bless you all.

    Respectfully submitted,

    Obediah Okeson

  • Thought for the week: Life is like a 10-speed bicycle. Most of us have gears we never used - Charles Schulz.

    Prom was this past weekend. I loved seeing all the prom pictures on Facebook. I can’t believe that it is May already and it is time for the Derby. I haven’t picked out a horse yet, but the one I pick out will probably join all my other ones, which are still running.

    May is going to be a busy month for me. It’s my birthday month plus lots of other activities planned

  • On June 12, 1987, President Ronald Reagan proclaimed one of the most memorable statements of the 20th Century. President Reagan declared, “General Secretary Gorbachev, if you seek prosperity for the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe, if you seek liberation. Come here to this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, open this gate! Mr. Gorbachev, tear down this wall!” This historic charge aided in the destruction of the Berlin Wall that occurred in November 1989.
