Our Family Ties group of about 30 enjoyed a wonderful Valentine’s Day meal and program prepared by the Apalachee Baptist Church on Monday, February 8th. After a delicious home-cooked meal and a variety of desserts, the group then enjoyed singing and encouraging words from the church’s pastor, Alan Cagle. Each family then received a basket full of paper products donated by various church members, while the children all got boxes of chocolate hearts. It was a wonderful evening. If you are a grandparent or other relative over the age of 55 who have custodial responsibility, and would like to join our Family Ties group please contact the Senior Center at 706-342-1614. The Seniors enjoyed a WII Bowling Tournament with Bill Shaffer as the winner. The other participants were Nelline Landress, Minnie Peek, Willie Releford, Doris Booker, and Evelyn Helms.
On February 12th, the Seniors celebrated Valentines by playing various games such as name that candy, doubles cup stack, match game, name that love song, and several other fun games. Six contestants were competing for the top honor of our Sweethearts: Lenora Crowley, Amy Benford, Patricia Griffin, Rufus Benford, Willie Releford, and Jerry Echols. The winners this year for Morgan County Senior Center Mr. and Mrs. Sweetheart were Jerry Echols and Lenora Crowley. Believe the Seniors’ favorite game may have been voting on the best lips competition. First place was Ms. Nellie Wilson, Second Ms. Nelline Landress, and third Florida Mae Bailey. You really must come out to the Center to enjoy all the fun and fellowship.
