Senior News

The Jennie June Club enjoyed a program on Operation Christmas Child at its meeting Nov. 13 at Perry Memorial Library. Hostesses were Debby Schollenbarger, Sandra Splawn and Carolyn Thomas.

Vicky Black, local coordinator, gave the program. Operation Christmas Child is part of the larger organization, Samaritan’s Purse. It was started in 1993 by Franklin Graham after he received a call from a British pastor on the plight of children in Bosnia. That first year, 28,000 shoe boxes were shipped.

The collection and sending of shoe boxes, filled with various items, around the world has grown tremendously. To date, 164 million boxes have been shipped.

Black also explained that a drop off system has been developed to collect boxes and ship them to processing centers. Locally, Victory Family Church is the drop off center.

Trick or treat? I’m going to leave the tricks up to Jim Clark. Keep a close eye on your dessert, silverware, or your whole stinkin’ plate. He is notorious for hiding things around here.

But the treats I am leaving totally up to you. Wednesday is our annual bake sale for United Way. The United Way is always so generous to include the Ochiltree County Senior Citizens Association in their yearly campaign allocations.

Please help us pay it forward by contributing with one of your favorite desserts. Bring it to the center by 10:30 a.m. Pull up a chair and have a cup of coffee while we try and decide which one we want to buy. We will be ready to sell these goodies at 11:30 a.m. You’re already here, so why not stay for lunch too.
