One hundred, thirty-seven clients were present when the Saturday Night Jamboree met recently at the Redmen’s Lodge in Washington. Registrar Carolyn Jefferson and Tillie Braddy signed in clients with loving assistance from Joyce Carawan.

DJ Redmen member Kenneth Beacham played music for dancing and listening pleasure. Marlene Sprouse led the activities and made announcements, while loyal volunteer Russel Jefferson kept a watchful eye on the outside of the facility.

Martha Seighman led the “Happy Birthday” song to all clients who had April birthdays, while Joyce Carawan placed birthday hats on all the birthday clients.

A prayer was said by Judy Hollis, followed by pizza and the trimmings served by First United Methodist Church.

The servers included: John Nesbitt, Carl Crozier, Gil Davis, Jim and Susi Pegan, Susan Leggett and “Sweet Papa Paige.”

Each client received an Easter egg treat provided by the Jamboree and passed out by caring volunteers Kin Wood, Tine Woolard, Martha Seighman, Joyce Carawan, Michael Cutler and Kathy Lilley, Jim Sadler and Marvin Alligood.

Door prize winners were Jonathon Bryant, Teresa Boyd and Lisa Phillips.

The next Jamboree will be the annual May prom on the first Saturday of the month: May 6. All area mentally/physically challenged residents and all volunteers are invited to mark their calendars and wear their Sunday best.
