Seniors, guests celebrate Thanksgiving
By SUE WATSON
Guests and directors from three community centers joined together to celebrate Thanksgiving Friday, Nov. 19, and to thank Marshall County and elected officials for supporting the meals for seniors program with the Northeast Mississippi Community Services.
Chulahoma, Watson and Victoria program participants met for chicken and dressing, loads of vegetables and pastas and a spread of cakes, pies and puddings.
Supervisor George Zinn presided. He introduced guests Sen. Bill Stone, chancery clerk Chuck Thomas, and Lee Davis, representing Larry Hall and the county administrator’s office. Lucy Carpenter, circuit clerk, was holding court and sheriff Kenny Dickerson was unable to attend due to court proceedings as well.
This year there was a full house of seniors enjoying the food, which was home cooked and served by center directors and volunteers.
Delia Reid, director, and Linda Hunt, assistant director of the Victoria center, took the lead at serving guests. Queen Dean, director at Chulahoma Community Center, welcomed guests and served.
Participants thanked the board of supervisors for supporting the senior citizens programs.
Anyone 60 years of age and over can join in at the community centers for hot lunches, organized games and other activities at no charge.
Speaking for the elected officials, Thomas said, “This is a great program and we are 100 percent for it. Happy Thanksgiving.”
Stone echoed his remarks.
“It’s always good to come out for good food and great fellowship,” he said.
Pastor Bogard lead a spiritual, “Shine On Me,” sung with great enthusiasm by all.
