For over 50 seasons of Christmas, I reminded each of my family members about the true Light, by giving them their own personal light. It started when my children were very young and were fascinated by flashlights. I gave each of them a pen light and the tradition began. As the years flew by, the grandchildren were also gifted with flashlights. Each year everyone wondered what the next year’s flashlight would be like.
Our grocery-style shopping cart fund continues to grow. The $600 currently raised means we are half way to the goal of $1,250. We hope you will want to help us complete the project with a donation, so that our rolling stock can increase from five to a total of 10 carts.
Our 7th Annual Kansas Day Celebration was a grand success with ninety persons attending to honor 155 years of Kansas as a state. Music from The Haymakers welcomed everyone with a few toe tappin’, hand clappin’ tunes, with the audience singing along on “You Are My Sunshine.” Polly Ferrell shared some Kansas history and refreshed our knowledge about official state symbols. Special guest, Fred Atchison, was recognized for his poetic contributions about Kansas. Polly ready one of his best, “Foundation of the Prairie.” Music continued by The Haymakers to cap the evening.
Yarns of Love, a knitting/crocheting ministry began at Meadowlark Hills in Jan. 2010. Now in its fourth year, the program continues to give support to persons in need. The first projects, Gifts of Sweaters, were sent to World Vision for distribution to children in developing countries. Eight residents created a total of 79 sweaters. Prayer Shawls are the second project, which continues today. They are given to our Assisted Living households, Bramlage House and FirstUnitedMethodistChurch. Eight residents have created 65 shawls, visible evidence of care and support.
