Hats Off to Our Volunteers . . .

Have you ever faced a morning with more demands on your to-do list than hours enough in the day to accomplish them?  That’s how I felt when my alarm went off Monday.  

I arrived at the center cringing at the thought of all the work waiting for me. But then a wonderful thing happened – people stepped up to help me. Laura manned the reception desk and ran interference with the telephone. Norene took on the task of table decorations.

In fact, every time my proverbial “plate” is full, volunteers seem to appear and offer help. Since April is National Volunteer Appreciation Month, I’d like to recognize and say thanks to many people who give so much of their time and energy to help keep this place running:

Board of Directors:  Tonya Gary, David Buschow, Marci Whitney, Ken Davis, Bill Bennett, Dora Calderon, Sharon Carnley, Wanda Davis, Michael Franklin, Doris Friddle, Ken Johnson, Patricia Luna, Donald Reese, Glenn Summers, and Mandy Sharp.

Silver Notes:  Max Wheeler, Dorothy Dowler, Linda Duncan, Eula Eckert, Bill Farmer, Juanita Farmer, Joyce Hibbs, Blanche Ladd, Joe and Sue Nix, Monita Remmich, Mary Ann Rowan, James and LaVern Sain, Maxine Shupp, Jim Stevens, Margaret Strain Burkie Thornton, Betty West, Marjorie West, Harold and Gloria Wheeler, Bob White, Kathy Woodard and Bessie Wright.

Front Desk Reception:  Bobbie Coleman, Laura Fouke, Marilyn Rhodes and Rosette Sutton.

Teachers:  O.D. Cole, Lucien Coleman, Dorothy Dowler, Linda Draper and Linda Gilley.

Birthday Band:  Max Wheeler, Glen Albin, Wesley Albright, Jim Buzby, Linda Dennis, Bobby Hart, Billy Jones, Elmer Lawrence, Paul Saunders, Red West and Marvin Wood.

Kitchen Helpers:  Bobbie Coleman, Rikki Jo Horton, Norene Moore, William Moss, Rosette Sutton, Pam Tatum, Sandy Vinson and James Williams

Birthday Party Helpers:  Sharon Carnley, Danna Hadley, Keisha Henry, Ruby Kling and Dollie Meals.

  • Ordinary heroes

    It seems kind of funny to me that our society celebrates the abilities of some people while ignoring those of others.

  • FEB BD.jpg Treasures Galore

    Have you heard that old saying, “One person’s junk is another person’s treasure”? Well let me tell you, we’ve got treasure to spare!


    Since early Monday morning, our volunteers have been unpacking, sorting, pricing and arranging truckloads of treasure for the annual Gigantic Garage Sale that begins tonight. Our $10-per-person Early Bird Sale will run from 5-7 this evening, but the real fun begins tomorrow morning. The sale from 9-5 on Friday, March 14, and 9-1 on Saturday, March 15, is free to the public.
