I hope that all those wonderful mothers out there had the best Mother’s Day ever!!! I know many that deserve such a day!!


May 9th Laura Henson was here to get our seniors moving with Drums Alive and she sure had quite the group of seniors, They all were smiling, grooving, laughing, but most of all having FUN!!!!


May 10th Ms. Misty from the Library invited our senior’s BBB team over to play…Seniors v/s Children. It was amazing to see all those children with our seniors and it was amazing to see the smiles on our Seniors faces!!

Sharon Potts, Mary Bohannon, Naomi Martine, Peggy Metcalf, Betty Ayers all hit homeruns and brought runs in. 2nd game Tigers won 15-9. Dwight Mantooth, Bob Olds, Gene Brown, all made homeruns and brought runs in. we always enjoy being around the wonderful people of Van Buren, they have us laughing the whole time!!


Our senior center celebrated Mother’s Day Friday May 12th with a lunch fit for a QUEEN. We served Turkey and dressing, sweet potatoes, green beans, hot roll and pumpkin pie with whip topping to a great crowd. Later at 5:00 our center had a BBB potluck. Everyone brought their favorite dish and had a great supper. When everyone was finish eating then the ball games began!! My two sons came to play. They are ages 11 and 8 and are normally team captains. My Boys take turns picking teams and then for about an hour or so we just LAUGH.
