Senior Spotlight for May 13, 2013
May 12, 2013
Mother's Day has come and gone, and I hope it was an enjoyable one for all mothers out there.
For those of us whose mothers are no longer with us, it was a good time to reflect on the precious days we had with them and to thank the Lord for them.
It is nice to see all the activity that is associated with spring and getting ready for summer. One of the activities that kicked off this week is the annual Children's Miracle Fund Drive sponsored by Walmart. This community always has been a great supporter of this campaign.
Although money is raised nationwide, the monies raised for this worthy cause goes to local Children's Hospitals in the states it is given. Denver Children's Hospital is the recipient for the funds raised in Colorado. I, for one, appreciate the care given at that hospital to my children and great-grandchildren.
I would like to give out a belated thank you to the children from Sunset Elementary School for the delightful May basket I found on my door and the precious bead pictures made by the younger children. The Yampa Valley Piecemakers Quilt Guild Circle of Friends also gets a thank you for the placemats that were given out for Mother's Day at Sunset Meadows.
Birthday wishes go out to Joe Gallegos, Maddisyn VanGrandt, Ray Wagner, Laura Perry, Judith Wheeler, Audrey Mahaffie and Donald Davisson.
Get-well wishes go out to all those who are ailing; hope you are feeling better soon.
The truck will be at Boys and Girls Club for food distribution this Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. and will go until 1 p.m. or until all the food is distributed.
Don't forget the regular Friday Potluck at Sunset Meadows I at noon Friday.
Be sure and let me know of any events, birthdays, etc. that you want to share.
