Senior News Pahrump Valley Gazette, Thursday, February 20, 1997 11 O TONOPAH SENIORS We had a good week here at the Center. Everyone is beginning to feel better and the flu virus and colds are wear- ing themselves out. Our daily meal count is increasing and that makes us happy. It's nice to see so many folks returning to the Cen- ter. The cold weather and icy conditions kept man)' people indoors. These last few days have been cold but the sun- shine has brought some relief. Maybe it's a sign that spring is on the way. Congratulations to Helen Reed, the winner of the beauti- ful crocheted tablecloth. Believe me, she was the envy of everyone present. Welcome back to Hilda McGowan just returning from a tour of the Holy Land. Making the trip with her was out dear friend Mary Shearly, former Tonopah resident and Pas- tor of the Presbyterian Church. Pastor Mary returned to her home in Rancho Cordova two years ago. We sure do miss her smiling face. The Diabetic Support Group held their monthly meeting on Wednesday the 12. They had a good turnout and every- one enjoyed the gathering. It's always a pleasure having guests join us for lunch. This week we had Garry Harge, Superintendent of the Nye County School District, Ida Peter and Chet b4yer of Gold- field, Coreen Bell and Robert Rude from Goldpoint, Katie Wilson's daughter Patsy Endel from Missouri, Irene Jef- frey, Eunice Downs, Zelinda Lang, Shirley Wardle, and Dorothy Smith. We also had Eve and Larry Richman from Henderson here on Thursday. These fine folks always stop by to say hello when they come through Tonopah. Thank you to Zelinda Lang for the delicious apples and to Estelle Chapman for her great donation to the Coffee Fund. We really appreciate your kindness.

The winner of the drawing of a quilt made and donated by Hazel Davis of Rush Valley, Utah, was Down Esson of Beatty. Incidentally, Hazel is back visiting Bill and Mary Davis, and doing her much appreciated volunteer work in the kitchen here. Thanks Hazel for the donation of the quilt, and congratulations to the lucky winner. We're beginning to get some of our 49er friends at lunch time, and enjoy having them. Recently Dorothy Richey and her friend Donald Kreil of northern Idaho were in and Dorothy entertained us by playing the piano. Thanks, we needed that! Also old friends Clarnce and Thelma Wolford came in from Oregon, and we hope will be in the area for a nice long visit! Our Historian/Gardner Teddy Kreuter, who will proudly be 90 in June, has been working the flower-bed here at the Center, and it's an inspiration to all of us! And SO ARE YOU TEDDY ! ! ! REMINDER...
