127 SENIORS: Seniors looking for travel ideas for the future | Lifestyles
On Friday, July 29, President Jim Blalock opened the weekly business meeting.
Chuck Elgin then gave the opening prayer and Gene Brown conducted the Pledge of Allegiance.
Jim thanked the sponsor of today’s bingo, Life Care Center, and asked for prayers for our senior center members facing health issues. Many members of Cumberland County Seniors have contracted COVID-19 and are recovering. Eileen Clark lost her brother last week, please pray for her family. Contact Sunshine Lady Margaret Miller if you know of a member with health issues.
