Well, I guess spring is finally here! I was beginning to think we would never see the sun again, but I do believe it is finally showing some spring like weather. Thank you, Lord!
First of all today, I need to start off with a huge thank you to the members of Gateway Baptist Church and True Life Church for all the help they brought to us this past Friday. It was wonderful!
We had downed trees that would have taken Jeff three or four weeks to cut up and haul away. I am so very, very thankful to you all who came. This place looks more like a retirement center now than a tree dumpster. Ha!
I felt so very sorry for Jeff, knowing he would be doing all of that by himself, but the Lord had other plans. Thank you, Lord! Thank you, friends of Dunlap!
Speaking of “friends of Dunlap,” there is a special account set up at the Patriot Bank if anyone is interested in making a tax deductable donation to Dunlap Retirement Center. We are a non-profit organization that provides a home for folks who no longer need to live alone but are not at the point of needing a nursing home or assisted living facility. That is us!
We are a non-medical facility, so Dunlap is just a retirement community. A resident must be able to dress, get to the dining room, and take care of all hygiene needs unassisted, although, we will assist with medication, if necessary. If you are interested in donating, please call any Patriot Bank. To find out more about Dunlap, please give me a call at 476-7014.
As most of you know, we are full into our Spring Fest mode. Spring Fest is on May 3, from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., here at the center, 1495 Dunlap Orphanage Rd. in Brighton. The rainout date is May 10.
I always ask my readers to please, please bake a cake and bring it for the auction and I would once again ask the same. (Thank you!)
If you make crafts of any kind, please call to set up a booth selling your goods. All we suggest is a donation for the use of the spot. We will also have a booth set up this year for Relay for Life. Plan to come and make a day of it with your family!
Hot dogs, hamburgers, chips and drinks are served for a donation. Ms. Patsy Fee will once again be cooking up some of those wonderful fried pies! If you miss that, you’re missin’ out!
There will be wonderful gospel music, games for the kids and the young at heart and all sorts of things to do. Set your calendar now to attend!
Until next week, have a blessed week and don’t forget to tell someone you love them!
