A busy month for Kimberly seniors

Kimberly Seniors by Jody Newman

The North Jefferson News

We had a great time in October, didn’t we Kimberly seniors?

First, we were off to the Southern Women’s Show in Birmingham. Some of us got a little crazy and came back with lots of “stuff” while others were more controlled in their spending. We all had fun.

Dr. Karen Heaton and her nurses came and talked to us about the flu, which is a topic of great interest to us right now because it seems somebody’s always got it.

Kerry and Teresa Sparks and Dude Salyers entertained us with their gospel music. We are blessed to have not only musicians come in from other areas, but also to have musicians in our own center who play for us almost daily. We welcome any senior who wishes to jam with us.

Johnny Reno, one of our harmonica players, has been under the weather lately. We’re praying for you, Johnny, and look forward to your return to the center.

We were pleased to have Dixie Kuykendall from the Silver-Haired Legislature visit and talk to us about issues that need to be brought before the Legislature pertaining to seniors.

Many thanks to the street department who carved pumpkins for us and for sharing their Halloween decorations with us. We were decked out around here big time.

Our seniors all had their pictures made in the electric chair and then the casket. We then had a great Halloween party. We served chili, played games and had a Halloween contest. James and Ann Teal won scariest costume and Cindy Estes and Greer Perryman won best costume. Everyone seemed to have a fun time.

Enough about October because November is going to be so busy and exciting. On Friday from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. there will be a meet and greet for our new mayor and city council at the Kimberly Senior Center. Refreshments will be served. Please stop by and make your wishes and concerns known and welcome our new city leaders.

    Dear Savvy Senior
    What can you tell me the about the constant ear ringing syndrome known as tinnitus? At age 56, I have had it for several years but it has gotten more and more noticeable lately. Is there anything I can do?

  • Civitan’s ‘General’ wins major recognition Gardendale native Robert E. Lee is revered as “The General of Recruiting” as the president of the Gardendale Civitan Club.

    Lee has led the club for more than 20 years and he’s recruited about 200 people into the organization. “There’s a secret to recruiting for Civitans and I’m one of the few people that knows it,” he said. “The secret is a-s-k. You just have to ask people to join.”
