Yesterday evening I was invited to the First Baptist Church to see an excellent dulcimer band. In fact, they play many instruments such as accordion, steel drums and mandolin. Lots of Gospel songs and even some old, anonymous pieces like "wildwood flower" A nice spread of sandwiches, cookies and drinks were served after, but I had eaten so much at lunch I had to decline. I know what you are thinking! When does Tom Hayward turn down food?
Today at Kiwanis lunch we discussed our role at the July (5) Independence Day get-together at Brooks Park with The Kiwanis offering the hamburgers and drinks for the occasion. Our mayor has promised a great fireworks display for the event and it is open to all of N. Mobile. Hope we top last years 1200 to 1500 people. Our speaker this afternoon was Patty Lynn from Alacare, a rehabilitation and hospice provider. Her organization provides spiritual and friendship assistance not only to the patient, but to the main caregiver as well. They are constantly looking for volunteers and would welcome anyone who would like to help provide care to people in need.
