  • Sunrise Volunteers Christmas program

    The Sunrise Volunteers held their annual Christmas program for Sunrise Manor Residents on December 12.

    We invited children from First Presbyterian Church to sing Christmas songs. They were very good and a blessing to hear and watch.

    First Baptist also presented a puppet show with a ventriloquist and puppet in a North Pole Skit. They followed up with an adult group, singing Christmas songs.

    Tim Shockley, our previous chaplain, sang some solo songs and played the piano. Several volunteers took pictures to put in our pictorial historian book.

  • Lost in LaRue

    Nestled in the hills of Kentucky surrounded by trees and wildlife, that’s where I feel most at home. Our house is in the shadow of a knob; our favorite places as a family are among the trees and near the river. When I was younger and didn’t have children, I would go hiking on a regular basis; it’s great exercise and you get to see some amazing scenery.
