The Senior Center of Luverne buzzed with special planned activities during the whole month of May.

In observations to celebrate &#8220Older American Month,” the seniors enjoyed a variety of fun and exciting things.

The first week of May, they celebrated May Day with a real May Day pole, while Becky Welch played appropriate tunes.

Several seniors entertained with a couple of old time spirituals.

Also, comments and readings were given pertaining to the meaning of May Day.

Some of the seniors were children again, blowing bubbles to everyone's delight.

Barnett King visited the center on May 8th and presented a very interesting program on birds and their habitat.

He gave a homemade wooden birdhouse and a wooden dust pan that he had made as door prizes.

On May 18th, the seniors enjoyed a covered dish luncheon.

Julia Davis organized a silent auction.

The items were donated by members of the senior center.

The money raised will be used for different things at the center.

Mr. Ben Bradley, a representative with Compassionate Hands Hospice, presented the center with a gift of a Bingo set that included the wheel for calling out the numbers.

The highlight of the May activities was the picnic and outing held on May 31st.

With all the laughter and chatter that was heard when the seniors boarded the chartered Crenshaw County School Bus, you were reminded of children catching the bus for school.

Thanks to Mr. Butch Norman with the Crenshaw County School Transportation Department and Danna Free, bus driver.

Danna was so helpful to everyone.

After boarding the bus, a devotional and prayer was given by James Catrett.

Thanks to Mr. Kermit Styron who organized the sightseeing tour of Gov. Fob and Bobbie James' plantation.

After the tour, the group gathered at the home of Bobby and Becky Welch.

They welcomed everyone

and gave them a guided tour of their home. It was a treat to view all the antiques and items displayed in their home that was built in the early 1800's.

A picnic box lunch was served under the shade trees where they had placed tables and chairs.

Someone remarked about the beauty of the day, sitting near a beautiful magnolia tree and under the umbrella limbs of an old oak tree, with a cool summer breeze blowing and being with friends: &#8220It just don't get much better than this.”

Upon returning to the center, Bubba Davis gave a closing prayer.

Brunese Thomas, director of the center, expressed her appreciation to all who helped make &#8220Older American Month” a month to remember.

Praise Report….This is an invitation to all to drive through the Meadowcrest Community and see the beautiful bougainvillea hanging baskets that are nurtured by Tommy Beasley.

Tommy is a resident at Meadowcrest who certainly has a love for flowers.

Despite the dry weather and heat, these plants are survivors with the tender loving care rendered by Tommy.

The largest blooming baskets, in a variety of colors, are the ones Tommy nurtured through the winter months.

On several occasions these baskets have graced the sanctuary at South Luverne Baptist Church.

The residents and management appreciate the tireless efforts of Tommy, who provides these beauty spots for them to enjoy.

Also, appreciation goes to &#8220The Happy Potter,” owned by Sherri Richburg, that provides these affordable plants.
