Carolyn Jefferson, assisted by Tillie Braddy and Joyce Carawan, registered 147 clients recently when then Saturday Night Jamboree celebrated Valentines Day on Feb.14. The Little Creek Band (members include: leader Lynwood Thurman, Tommy Keech, Duke Chandler, William Barr, Barney Conway) provided music for dancing, while Russell Jefferson and Swindell Braddy kept a close watch.

Volunteers Ginger Boyle, Tine Woolard and Kin Wood handed out Valentines and pencils provided for the exchange of Valentines. Martha Seighman conducted activities and led the singing to the February birthday honorees. Carolyn Jefferson handed out perfect attendance certificates to last year’s perfect attendees.

Lane Woolard sang “It’s Love That Makes the World Go Round” and Frances Rogerson asked a blessing before the members of Ware’s Chapel Church served refreshments.  Members who served included:  Donna Parker, Kathy Leggett, Linda Lancaster, Danny Boyd, Zeke Boyd, Nancy and Christine Arnold..

The next Jamboree will be the annual Western Night, March 14, beginning at 5 p.m. (Please note the early starting time.) Games of Bingo will be held prior to the Redmen serving a barbecue supper, following the regular Jamboree.

All mentally/physically-challenged residents and all volunteers are urged to don their cowboy gear and attend this fun event..

Those wishing to volunteer, provide music or refreshments, or make contributions to the Saturday Night Jamboree may call Jamboree President Marlene Sprouse at 252-946-4350
