Today, Bruce White of “White Real Estate & Auction” came and shared with us about working as an auctioneer in Butler County. He told us how honored he was to help individuals and families sell some of their most valuable assets, like homes, furniture, and property, for the most capital that could be raised. He even mentioned having auctions for some of our elders and even stopped to hug Ms. Burden when she arrived; White having done some auctioning for her.

White also demonstrated his auctioneering for us by volunteering his services and auctioning off gift baskets to our stakeholders.

Several departments put together themed gift baskets to sell and raise money for our elder vacation to Disney World. Some baskets went for $100! All together we raised $515 from generous bidders. Our auction was a great success! Thank you stakeholders and thank you Bruce White.

Yesterday was National Bookmobile Day (Wednesday, April 16, 2014) and it is a day to celebrate our nation’s bookmobiles and the dedicated library professionals who provide this valuable and essential service to their communities every day. In Butler County we also honor our bookmobile patrons.

We had a program about National Bookmobile Day with a very special guest. Olivia Warren, one of our elders, was the very first librarian and the very first bookmobile driver in Butler County! Mrs. Warren was the first Butler County librarian and the only librarian from 1954 to 1957. She shared lots of stories from her days driving the bookmobile. “There were hard roads back then,” she said! She was a little anxious about taking the job at first because she was unfamiliar with the county. She soon learned all about the little communities and towns in our county through driving the bookmobile.

It is a sad occasion to experience the loss of a beloved elder. We experienced this kind of grief this past week when our friend Roy Jackson passed away on Tuesday, April 1st. As he passed away he was surrounded by loving and caring people, one of them being his sister Dolly Jackson who is also an elder that lives at Morgantown Care & Rehab. After Roy passed away it was soon decided that he would return home to Thompkinsville, KY to be buried in the same cemetery where all his family had been laid to rest.On Friday Dolly was accompanied by our Social Services Director, Lynn Harris, and myself to attend the funeral of her brother Roy. One by one as cousins and neighbors came to pay their respects at the Strode Funeral Home, Dolly was surpised by each warm visit. It was like a reunion. There was a nice service provided by a local pastor and many hugs and handshakes exchanged between all those gathered.

But perhaps the most special part of the trip home for Dolly and also for Lynn and I, was taking Dolly to her old homeplace. This is where she lived most her life. It’s where Roy lived most of his life too. Dolly wanted to collect some pictures and some personal momentos. As we went through the old house we found the pictures and items that meant the most to Dolly. It was a great way for Dolly to reclaim a hope and a heritage. It was a sad day but a special day. Roy went home and so did Dolly.

Blessings,
Chaplain Derek

Tommy Hines visited us today and thoroughly explained the organization of the South Union Shaker Village.

The longest-lived Shaker community in the West, South Union Shaker Village in Auburn, KY, was active from 1807 to 1922. The architecture of this Shaker village reflects a regional Southern influence, quite distinct from the villages of the eastern United States.It was a fascinating presentation as Tommy helped us to understand this particular faith and the ethics of the Shakers.

Tommy has been an active volunteer at Morgantown Care & Rehab for many years. He loves visiting with our elders even when he is not sharing in various programs and presentations connected to his work.

It was a special Butler County connection that brought a Colorado Springs, Colorado couple to Morgantown Thursday morning to be married. Brian Lane Smith, fiancée Sarah Yeagley and her son Devin chose the lobby of Morgantown Care and Rehab so Brian’s grandmother, Mary Woosley and great-grandmother, Luella Deweese, could attend. Luella is a resident of the facility. For more, please visit Beech Tree News Network.
