On the Bright Side

By Mary Howell


            The residents of Hemphill Care Center celebrated Labor Day weekend with a visit from Lake Area Hospice clowns on Saturday afternoon, a scavenger hunt on Sunday, and an indoor picnic lunch on Monday. Winners of the scavenger hunt were Marilyn Riordan and Laura Lane.

            On September 5th we enjoyed a NFL Kick-Off party with chips and dip.

In honor of the grandparents, a social was given to celebrate Grandparent’s Day.

After the resignation of Bill Ener, Edgar Smith was elected Resident Council President. Employees of the Month were Lisa Carranza and Michelle Mohr. Our Hemphill Church of Christ friends were named Volunteer of the Month, and Leola Miller was named Resident of the Month.

We express our appreciation to our September Bingo sponsors, Hemphill Church of Christ, Parkway Baptist Church, Brother G, April from Texas Home Health, Camille from River City Hospice, American Legion Post #197, and Juanita and Melissa.

On September 11th, the VFW Ladies Auxiliary #10351 came to visit us in observance of Patriot Day.

Our housekeeping staff was honored with a “make your own sundae” party Friday September 14th.  

Terri McGraw and Kids entertained us with lively music on the 15th.

We were blessed to worship with the following churches: Hemphill First Baptist, Church of Christ, Parkway Baptist, Fairdale Baptist, Bethel Chapel Baptist, and Community Fellowship.

The Pineywood Pickers entertained us with their toe-tapping music last Wednesday afternoon. Refreshments were served by friends from Hemphill United Methodist Church. John Napier came to sing for us on Saturday afternoon.

Tomorrow the Harbor Hospice will host our September birthday party honoring: Mildred Conn, Leola Miller, Sarah Sullivan, Jerry Fields, Estelle Granger, David Malone, Mary Smith, Ruby Williams, Eva Powell, Bill Ener, Eva Winn, Florence McClelland, and Bernadine Powell.

We express our deepest sympathy to the families of Baxter Faires, Ruthie Malone, and Clement McDaniel.

We look forward to C J Michaels One Man Band on Friday and our day at the movies on Saturday. Thanks to Hornet Express Video for providing the movies for our pleasure.

We welcome friends and families to participate in the Care Center activities. Your presence will give your loved ones a day on the bright side.
