Spring dinner held at Manor Church Senior Citizens Club

April 20, 2007

The Manor Church Senior Citizens Club met April 4 in the regular meeting room of the Manor Church of the Brethren at 1851 Manor Church Road.

Club President Ruth South greeted and welcomed members and guests, proclaiming 'This is the day that the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it'. Pastor Jay Zepp, minister at Manor Church, offered prayer and blessing.

Fifty members and guests enjoyed the traditional springtime soup and sandwich dinner, along with surprise side dishes.

Following dinner, the president conducted the business meeting. Everyone recited the Pledge of Allegiance. Business matters and plans were discussed in proper order.

The highlight of the day was a well-planned birthday party for member Richard Cass. Richard has been the photographer for the club for 15 years, and has compiled beautiful albums of members and guests. The albums were on display, and brought memories of many happy days of being together as a club.


The crowning ceremony was conducted by club secretary Dorothy Jamison. Richard was crowned King for the Day, and his wife, Iolene, was crowned Queen. Richard and Iolene were serenaded with beautiful music provided by "Sentimental Sounds," Jack and Donna Haines.

The club presented a cake to the King, and it was served with ice cream. The mailbox provided was jammed with birthday cards. Door prizes were awarded to lucky members.

Mary Jane Ahalt was present, after months of absence caused by a fall on the ice. She was presented with a bouquet of flowers.

As a special project, members were asked at a previous meeting to bring a new tea towel for Holly Place, and many towels were received.
