Kitchen Band En­ter­tains Many In The Area

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

The Lin­coln Kitchen Band was in the usual fun form Tues­day. Lorene an­nounced that the group has been in­vited to the VA nurs­ing home on Tues­day, March 20. We had the priv­i­lege of play­ing there some years ago, and I’ve been think­ing of the many times we have en­joyed such events over the years.

There were “ac­tions” ac­com­pa­ny­ing the mu­sic to such as the lit­tle red wagon; the chicken dance; a cou­ple dressed as Hill­bil­lies, and com­ing stum­bling in to the tune of the Lit­tle Brown Jug; one girl dressed and acted to the tune of You Must Have Been a Beau­ti­ful Baby; and, oh, that Quar­tet! Soul­fully singing “You Are My Sun­shine,” with Ge­orge Schooler com­ing in when they sang “and I cried” with a very loud, tear-jerk­ing “Boo-Hoo Boo-Hoo.” In be­tween songs, Ge­orge would yell “Joke time” with more fun.

The band has vis­ited ev­ery cen­ter and rest home in the area, in­clud­ing Westville, Okla., rest home, Siloam Springs cen­ter and rest home, Spring­dale cen­ter, Elkins cen­ter, West Fork cen­ter, Fayet­teville cen­ter and rest home, Prairie Grove cen­ter and rest home, Farm­ing­ton cen­ter and rest home, Lin­coln Head Start and birth­day par­ties.

For all this fun and ac­tiv­i­ties we owe Ge­orge and Lorene Schooler many thanks, for it was all their idea to be­gin, and they have kept it go­ing. With­out this spe­cial cou­ple we would have no band.

Rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the Wash­ing­ton County Sher­iff’s Of­fice and Lin­coln Po­lice De­part­ment are to be in the Lin­coln Cen­ter this Thurs­day, March 15, from 12 to 1 p.m. to talk on iden­tity theft and se­nior scams. These scams are very se­ri­ous prob­lems, as sev­eral lo­cal res­i­dents can tell.

Happy birth­day greet­ings to Amy Rush, Jerry Bradley, At­las May, Carol Snarr, Paula Cox, Tim Bai­ley, Justin Spear.

Happy an­niver­sary to Al and Sue San­ders, Gar­ret and Brit­tany Lip­ford.

Happy years, all!
