Church Party 2008

Home Up

On December 8, 2008,  6:30 P.M. at the Welika Lake Fish House in Lilesville, NC, The "Young At Heart Group" met for their annual Christmas party.  This is a group of senior citizens from the Wadesboro Church of God.  By special invitation,  the whole church, family, friends and neighbors were included in the festivities.  After a sumptuous Banquet, a time of acknowledging those who work with the Church program was taken care of.  Sister Melba Paul is the teacher of the senior adults and was given an honorium by her class.  Sister Rachel Myers is the leader for the "Young At Heart" activities and was honored with an honorium from that group.  The Pastor Reverend Jeff Goudlocke then honored other workers within the Church.  Then, it was time to play.  Everyone pitched in and helped sing, "The 12 days of Christmas."  Those who were selected,  helped act out the day they represented.  Please take note of Wayne Kelly singing and acting out the eight maids a milking.  It was a howling success and we all enjoyed laughing at each other.

Our speaker for the evening was invited from Monroe, NC, Mrs. Barbara Funderburke.  She was an author, had been a teacher and a nurse.  She regaled us with tales of funny things that had  happened to her while on duty as a home health nurse.  She told about the raccoon that was trying to steal her stethoscope.  Another memorable story was about the time she jumped into bed with her male patient that was when a snake was in the room with them.  She rounded the evening out with story of Jesus' birth from the Bible.  Then it was time to give away some door prizes, pay up and go home with our spirits renewed and joy in our hearts.  There were about 45 present.  The above written by Rachel Myers for web publishing on 04-01-09. 

Maybe down the road I will have video capabilities of which would have been great to capture the theatrics of this fine group.
