The Eads Senior Citizens who came to the monthly lunch thoroughly enjoyed the beef brisket that Rod and Dana Brown donated to the group. Darryl Stolzenberger smoked the brisket for Gail to serve. She also made warm wheat rolls and baked cheese hash brown casserole. Joyce Berry gave us an update on the future Senior Center across the street which is now two vacant gutted brick building. She said that Cindy McCloud is working on some new grants. Next month, Gail Voss, our director said she will fry the chickens and make gravy and Joyce Berry volunteered to make mashed potatoes. I remember that in the past June Blooding often made those potatoes. Bless her heart. Here are three important dates: Wednesday, July 5th is the Sage meal gathering to eat together at noon at the Center. It is important to call Areta Laird by Monday to make a RSVP to have a hot lunch delivered from Lamar on that day. On Thursday July 6th the Brunch will be at l0:00 a.m. The noon pot luck lunch will be Wednesday, July 19th. People who are of senior citizen age are welcome to come to these events as well as to play cards at the Center on Thursday evenings.

I hope everyone had a great Easter weekend. I didn't have an article last week, because I didn't want to bother people when they had company and me and the Easter Bunny had other things to do.
Dick, Kyle, and I joined my mom, Mary Huddleston; my brothers Mike and Larry, and a niece Kerri Bayne and her family for lunch in Lamar on Easter Sunday.
