On the Bright Side – Mary Howell

Filed under: Mary Howell — Freddie Keel @ 6:02 am

            Hemphill Care Center welcomed family and friends to the third annual community appreciation event which was hosted by the corporate owners. More than two hundred hamburgers were served to the guests. The event was enjoyed by the young and the old. The children had fun playing on the giant slide and trampoline.

The following Monday we were entertained by the Lakes Area Hospice Clowns who distributed bags of candy to us.

The Resident Council selected Quincy Martindale from Affinity Hospice as the Volunteer of the Month, Nelly Sheppard as Resident of the Month, and Patty Helmer and Rose Sparks as Employees of the Month.

A party was held October 11th to show appreciation to our Food Service workers including Rene, Mamie, Linda, Katherine, Julia, Becky, Colette, and Alla.

The Care Center expressed appreciation to the Hemphill and Pineland Volunteer Fire Departments by providing meals at their respective department meetings. This was in recognition of Fire Prevention Week.

We say thank you to our October Bingo sponsors: Kelli from East Texas Home Health, Hemphill Church of Christ, American Legion Post #197, and Parkway Baptist Church.

We extend our sympathies to the family and friends in the loss of their loved ones Albert Blackerby, Frances Martin, Norbit Tatom, and Perkin Thomas.

During October we worshipped with the following churches: Hemphill First Baptist Church, Fairdale Baptist Church, Bethel Chapel Baptist Church, Community Fellowship Church, Hemphill Church of Christ, Parkway Baptist Church, Gravel Hill Antioch Baptist Church, Bethany Baptist Church, Burkeville Baptist Church, and the Harvest Assembly of God Church.

Happy October Birthday wishes go to Jeanette Cupit, Margaret Conway, Lora Wilson, Carolyn Lyons, Mary Howell, and Dwain Rhame. Our birthday party was hosted by Harbor Hospice.

We look forward to our October Fall Fest which will begin at 2 pm Thursday October 31st. We welcome family and friends to come celebrate with us. We also look forward to children coming by for tricks or treats. We will have fun seeing the little ones dressed up in their Halloween costumes later that evening.

May God bless you and yours with a life on the bright side.
