Kitchen Band Entertains Many In The Area
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!
