Guests attending Wellman Senior Dining would like to extend their sympathy to Max and Doris Lewis and family upon the death of their son Paul. Max is the Senior Dining representative to the Wellman City Council. He brings senior citizens’ concerns to them. He also delivers home-delivered meals.
My husband and I took a little trip across the state to Nebraska City Monday and Tuesday. Crops looked good, but none better than our own Washington County area. Corn here is a lush dark green, fence high in many fields, and very colorful with waterways and terraces turned a golden yellow with perennial grasses. Roadsides are showy with orange roadside lilies, pink-purple vetch, yellow birds-foot trefoil and Queen Anne’s lace and yellow and white daisy-like flowers and elderberries.
We enjoyed the beautiful lawns and gardens along the way, hanging baskets and curbside plantings seem to be at their best. I recommend everyone take time to enjoy nature’s beauty and the efforts of others to beautify lawns and gardens.
Wednesday was a busy day at the Center. At 11:30 a.m. we had a video presentation on “Incontinence”. Enough people signed the register that the Center will receive a free movie video. I’m sure Bonnie will show it at the Center when it comes. There was a door price of $10 of coupons off Kimberly-Clark products. Roger Johnson won the door prize. Heather has another program scheduled soon on Osteoporosis.
Marie and Kent Williams brought guests Wednesday. They were Kent’s brother Howard Williams and his wife Vivian of Marion and his sister-in-law Veronica Williams and her daughter Sharon Long and her husband Bill of Cedar Rapids.
Bill and Edith Nisly had her quilters to lunch again Wednesday. They were her sisters, Mildred Graber, Effie Miller of Kalona, Ethel Miller of Wellman and sisters-in-law, Ila and Alta Swartzendruber of Kalona. Her daughter Rachel Kemp of Wellman was also there for lunch but she hurried back to work at Farmers Savings Bank in Kalona. I asked the ladies if they thought they’d get done today, but they said no. Six ladies quilting all day…what a lot of time goes into a handmade quilt. No wonder those of us without the time or skill required, resort to machine piecing and quilting.
Kalona brought 10 guests on the mini-bus Wednesday, among them Vernon and Vera Hepker. Vera comes to the Center quite often, but we hadn’t seen Vernon for some time. He said he works part-time.
Wednesday there were 67 places set in the dining room and 65 were occupied.
The menu included pork chops, which are very good. Rus and Betty Kempf delivered 18 home delivered meals.
Mary Kate and Oren Yoder brought guests to the Center Thursday. They were son Arlin Yoder and his wife Mary Lou of Wichita, Kansas and daughter Aldeen Wenger and her husband Eugene of Harrisonburg, Virginia. Arlin was staying about a week and Aldeen a couple of weeks.
George and Darlene Miller were to lunch Thursday; I hadn’t seen them for a while.
Harlan Berger of Coralville had lunch with his mother Elma Erb.
Guests were treated to ice cream by Bessie and Chuck Capper in honor of their 61st wedding anniversary which is July 2.
