  • A student was asked what the large letter K stood for on the front of his T-shirt.

    The student said, “Confused.”

    The man replied, “But that is not how you spell confused.” 

    “Man,” the student exclaimed, “you don’t know how confused I am.”

    Life can be confusing and we wonder what is going on. To add to the confusion, many unexpected things can come along to upset the apple cart. What can we do?  How can we endure?

  • Recently we had our spring semi-annual meeting of the Sunrise Volunteers.

    Sunrise Manor provided us a meal catered from Fazoli’s Restaurant in Elizabethtown.

    We elected two new officers: Sybil Skaggs, first vice-president, and Candy Vincent, second vice-president. They are both dedicated volunteers.

    We also would like to welcome two new volunteers at the Manor: Bruce Hatfield and Suzanne Boone.

  • For those who preserve food, now is a great time to gear up for the season. Start by inventorying supplies and getting a head start on purchasing needed jars and lids and other necessities.

    Pressure canners: Dial gauge canners need to be checked for accuracy to ensure safe processing pressure and temperature. Contact the Extension office (270-358-3401) and make an appointment to have your dial gauge on your canner lid tested for accuracy. This also will be available on May 19, Ag Market Day.

    The top-nine junior poems and the top-two senior poems will advance to the district competition.

  • Crosstown Homemakers

    The Crosstown Homemakers Club meets at 7 p.m. every third Thursday from September through May at the homes of different members.

    In September, we donated $100 to Feeding America Backpack Program for LaRue County children. We also donated money for the Ovarian Cancer Fund and Pennies for Friendship. Several of our members take advantage of the ovarian cancer program.

  • Four couples recently sat around a table at a local church sharing snacks and stories of their favorite springtime activities, because after all, memories are too precious to lose.

    While all this may sound trivial to some, to these couples memories are everything because one spouse has been diagnosed with a form of dementia or Alzheimer’s disease. Sharing memories through Memory Café gives them an outlet to socialize and support and receive support from others going down the same road.
