The Tucker County Senior Citizens held their monthly Outpost at the Parsons Center on May 3, 2022. Evelyn Moore welcomed everyone. Everyone recited the Pledge of Allegiance, the Lord’s Prayer, and sang “God Bless America”.
Those having May birthdays were recognized and everyone sang “Happy Birthday” to them. Those present were: Ida Workman, Dorothy Simpson, and Meg Buddingh.
Arlene Ramsey read “A Patchwork Quilt”, followed by Eleanor Nestor reading “One of These Days.” Next we had Angela Daniels read “Mother’s Day”, followed by Sharon Daniels reading “A Mother’s Love.” Linda Bonner then concluded the readings with “Motherly Advice.”
Linda read a few facts about Cinco de Mayo and made the announcements.
Our speaker for the day was Angela Daniels with the United Way. Tucker County is now being served by the Tygart Valley United Way which is a merger of the 5 counties. Tucker County has never had the services of the United Way. She explained how they work together with local organization to help our local people. For more information you can check out the website at tvunitedway.org. As stated they don’t directly deal with the individual but get the resources to serve them.
Because we had a little extra time, Betty Sturm played the piano for us and some folks sang along.
Because we were celebrating Cinco de Mayo, the first door prizes were Mexican sombreros. They were won by Jim Buddingh, Virgil Knotts, Jean Morrison, Ida Workman, and Eleanor Nestor.
The regular door Prizes were won by: Meg Buddingh, Don Nestor, and Mary Grado.
Jim Buddingh asked a blessing on our food and we enjoyed a delicious meal.
