Greetings to all my readers. I have missed writing, but I have been so busy, working in different area. I hope I am back in the news cycle again. My sympathy goes out to all that have lost their loved ones. Paul said to be absent from the world is to be present with Lord, but we realize we are human, so our hearts still hurt. Just remember God is with us he will never leave he will ride out the storm with us. To our own Ozell Lynch, as will as Opal Bryant, one of our site manager,s our prayers are continually going up for you.

Things are doing well at the center. We are harvesting a few vegetables. Hope you seniors can share. Maybe you might have a chance to come over to center and share in tasting or cooking some vegetables. Someone donated a freezer to the center. If you have vegetables to share, let us know. That can be a project — Freezing In Grandma’s Kitchen. I love cooking and freezing vegetables.

We are still enjoying our eight weeks Healthy Choice class. It’s been great. Just finished computer class. That was also good. Our next class will start September 8 on Tuesday and Thursday. Please call to get your name on the list and it is free. Thanks for the partnership with the Community College. On August 5 at 12:30, the Grand Kin Support meeting will be at the center. The public is invited.

Garland seniors will be taking a trip to Raleigh on August 20. Seats will fill up fast. Shop eat and fellowship. There will be history with Larry Sutton on August 12 at 12:30 p.m. and on August 13 at 12:30 p.m., Emily Corlyse with East Point will do a presentation at the Garland Center.

My motto still remains “Together we stand. Divided we fall.” Stay connected to Shade Tree of Life.
