Thanksgiving potluck planned

By Ashley Crownover

Henrietta Care Center will have a Thanksgiving potluck lunch on Friday, Nov. 16, at noon. Our menu will include ham, corn, sweet potatoes, rolls, and buttermilk pie. We strongly encourage friends and family of our residents to attend. We hope to see you then!

We put together goodie bags at the beginning of the week to give to the veterans in our community. We love celebrating Veterans Day and taking time to thank those who have fought for our freedom. We are extremely blessed to know such brave and selfless individuals. We have six veterans living at Henrietta Care Center. We would like to recognize Robert Bell for his services in the Army and Navy, Harell Edwards for his service in the Air Force, Lawrence Hogan for serving in the Army, Lowell Lynn for his service in the Army, Robert Maddox for serving in the Navy aircraft division, and to Doug Massie for serving in the Air Force. We also have one employee who is a veteran, Lindle Hodges. Thank you to each of you for the time you spent serving our wonderful country. We are very proud to be among such wonderful American citizens, and we are gratified by your dedication to the United States and our freedom.

We finished putting together our Operation Christmas Child boxes at the beginning of this week. The residents really enjoyed bagging the candy and putting together the boxes. Thank you to everyone who helped make this project a success. We will let everyone know our total number of completed boxes next week. We know that we exceeded our goal of 80 boxes. We are so grateful that everyone pulled together to help us reach this goal.

Thank you to Irene C. for donating items to HCC. Your donations are appreciated.

Be sure to check out our activity calendar on Facebook. November is a busy month, and we have many events planned that you would probably enjoy. Our door is always open to visitors, so please come by and see us.

Have a wonderful week, and we hope to see you at our Thanksgiving meal on Friday.
