A time of Thanksgiving

MERIDIAN —

November found Golden Living residents thankful for the beautiful year we have been able to enjoy so far. The residents here are striving to keep busy, some say it keeps you young.

    Friday is a good game day for residents starting the month off playing noodle ball, and what a workout it is to keep that balloon in the air. It’s all good fun even when you get hit in the head by the balloon since it doesn’t hurt. Sing along in the afternoon on Fridays is always a treat with ice cream and coffee.

    Back on Sunday morning, church is held with Brother Wiggins.

    Mondays are a memorable day of the week for most of the residents because Bingo is played, which they like to do. Bingo, bingo coverall winner was Catherine Deweese and Sallie Gray, specially special with Freda, who came to bake cookies; residents like this. The first Monday of each month staff hosts a birthday celebration for all the "babies" of that month; all residents are invited. They serve birthday cake, coffee, Coke, and they tie a balloon on the chair of each one who has a birthday.

    The Bailey Ladies and Northcrest Church come for devotion, including singing, prayer and a short message. The Rev. David Nelson came for devotion Wednesday morning; that afternoon Alice and Earline sing, tell stories or jokes. Oak Grove ladies, thanks for stopping by to sing.

    A Veterans Day Program was held to honor the veterans in the afternoon, with military bagpipes here, and the Memorial Cemetery Coordinator as the speaker. The Hutcherson Family Band and Oak Hill Baptist Church came to sing. Sageville/Wesley United Methodist Church, thanks for the group that came to sing and hold short devotion.

    The wine and cheese social was enjoyable, as we prepared to spend time for the Thanksgiving holiday with family or friends. The monthly resident council held memorial service, Hebron Baptist Church, and penny ante to close out the month.

    Thanks to our friends, family, and volunteers for all you do to make each day what it is.

    • Sallie Gray, a longtime 4-H leader and community development club member, is now a resident of Golden Living Center.
