Numerous current and former employees as well as board members and Terry’s family were present for the occasion. It was a time to fellowship, reminisce, give thanks, and say farewell.

Those who brought crafts were given the opportunity to talk about them. Melissa Smith and her mother Glonia shared several items that Melissa had made. Later, Melissa gave her crafts away to anyone who wanted them. Marion Wilson, who makes crafts for our residents out of plastic canvas, brought at tissue box that she had made. Mary Grace Vandevander shared pictures that she had colored in her Adult Coloring Book. Ruby Lipscomb and her daughter, Betty also shoed items that they'd made together. Betty cuts out and sews animals and then brings them in to Ruby so she can stuff them. Several employees have purchased some of these animals. Activity Aide, Gail George shared pictures that she had cross-stitched and framed. Activities Director, Barbara Mauzy also shared several items that her mother had made including crocheted items, a cross-stitched tablecloth, and sever plastic canvas placemats. The day was fun for all involved. Thank you to everyone who participated. 

Easter is a very special time of year for our residents. In the weeks before the Ministerial Association hole Lenten Lunches at the Presbyterian Church in Petersburg. This year we were able to take the residents to three of these lunches. They enjoyed the meals and services, but more importantly they were able to visit with friends and family. Many people stopped by our table to say "hello" and "glad you're here" including people who didn't even know the residents. It was a special time for our residents. Thank you to all who helped make these meals and services possible. 

Also around Easter, the residents enjoyed coloring eggs. It brought back many happy memories of coloring eggs with their children and even there moms when they were children themselves. They laughed and told stories of how they colored eggs with onion hulls, or how they mixed two colors together to make a new color. Some of the eggs were peeled and eaten with salt and pepper while others were made into deviled eggs to be eaten at the monthly birthday party which was held on April 19th. A special thank you goes to the Harmans who came to entertain at the party.
