Se­niors En­joy Hal­loween Cos­tume Party

Washington County Enterprise-Leader - - COMMUNITY - MARIE ROY WCN Colum­nist

The My­ers fam­ily reunion, in the home of Char­lie and Carol Pitts in Siloam Springs, was well at­tended Satur­day, con­sid­er­ing the fact that many fam­ily mem­bers were un­able to be there. Some chil­dren had ball games to play that day, some were on their jobs, some ill, and one mem­ber was in Fort Worth, Texas, help­ing judge a cookoff, his third this month, af­ter many oth­ers all sum­mer. This one in Fort Worth was the world cham­pi­onship cook off, with 115 coun­tries rep­re­sented. The other two this month were in White Hall, just out of Pine Bluff, and one in Musko­gee, Okla. So he does “get around,” but this was the last for this year.

Back to the reunion — of the 60 at­tend­ing, all were busy hav­ing fun, eat­ing, vis­it­ing, eat­ing, and that af­ter­noon, the liv­ing room was packed with Hog fans, watch­ing “the game” on T.V. It sounded like Ra­zor­back Sta­dium when Arkansas scored, and their win­ning the game “put ic­ing on the cake” for the day. An­other won­der­ful get to­gether, more mem­o­ries to cher­ish.

Satur­day evening was a fun time in the Lin­coln Se­nior Cen­ter also. Cen­ter di­rec­tor Joanna sat out­side with a ta­ble full of good­ies for the trick or treat young­sters who came by, and ev­i­dently there were many! Later the older “young­sters at heart” se­niors en­joyed danc­ing to the band’s mu­sic. Dur­ing the cos­tume show, Oda Wagnon won the prize for the best cos­tume. Yes, there is al­ways fun and en­ter­tain­ment as well as eat­ing in the Cen­ter. They plan a bake sale fundraiser for the 17th and their Fall Car­ni­val the 18th. More on th­ese later.

Happy birthday greetings to Bran­don Bradley, John Griscom, Wes­ley Martsching, Pa­trick Wooton, Eleanor Neal, Jean Helm, Jimmy Cham­b­liss, Kathy Farmer, Ivan Cush­ing.

Happy an­niver­sary greet­ing to Paul and Wanda Brake­bill.

Re­mem­ber to thank our Vet­er­ans on Nov. 11, Vet­eran’s Day, and any other time you meet one.

Re­mem­ber recycling Mon­day, Nov. 13.
