A regular meeting of the Richmond Kiwanis Club was held April 1 ( no fooling) at the 19th Hole restaurant. It was to have been a going away meeting for Levan Thurman, who is moving, but he was unable to attend so the cards and cake were sent to him. Levan has been a faithful member of the club for many years and will be missed.
Tuesday afternoon I attended the circle meeting held at the home of Emma MacDonald. Sadly my own circle had to disband due to lack of members and I enjoyed going to this circle. Rose Rader gave a very interesting program.
Wednesday I went to a meeting of Chapter CO of PEO at the home of Janet Arnette. The program was given by Richmond City Administrator Ron Brohammer concerning the assisted-living center to be built in the next few years on property north of the United Christian Presbyterian Church. There is definitely a need in this area for such a center.
Thursday evening I had dinner at the American Legion and then attended the meeting of the Auxiliary. The food is always excellent, but for some reason the attendance has dropped off.
Again on Friday when I had lunch at the 19th Hole. I had the shrimp, forgetting that I would have fish again that evening at Knights of Columbus fish fry. Good thing that fish is so good for you, because the next day I had tuna salad for lunch at the golf club. It was a beautiful day so there were a number of golfers taking advantage of the good weather.
Saturday morning I attended the Ray County Memorial Hospital health fair held in the Richmond High School commons. I was tested for several things and seem to be in fairly good health for my age. It was very interesting to walk around and visit with friends at various stations.
I believe that this is the first year for the event and judging from the interest and attendance I am sure that it may become an annual presentation. It was also nice to come home with two big bags of “freebies”.
Sunday after church I went to the Methodist Church, where another going-away party was being held for Levan Thurman. I was happy to be able to visit with his children, Bruce and Lynn, as well. We have been friends for so long that I really feel that they are family.
We are approaching Holy Week, so don’t forget the daily luncheons and speakers at the United Methodist church. I am hoping that the weather holds out so that there will be a good attendance at all of them. During my many years in Richmond I have seen it snow on Easter.
