Residents of Green Meadow Haven had two days of excitement last week. They made Christmas ornaments. And they were treated to homemade pies the day before Thanksgiving.
Members of the Sewing God’s Love group went to the nursing home on Tuesday to help the residents create their own Christmas ornaments. From the photos, you can see the residents had a great time. They also created beautiful ornaments for their rooms or trees. Thanks to C’ann Norman for the story, and to ladies from First Baptist, First Methodist and Wesley Chapel churches for doing all the instructing.
Then on Wednesday, Sharon Adkins and several others from the community brought pies they had lovingly baked at home. Adkins reported “Green Meadow Haven residents enjoyed homemade pumpkin and sweet potato pies on Wednesday, November 22. Ladies from Cross Roads Methodist church, First United Methodist Church, and Wesley Chapel United Methodist Church baked the pies to help the residents celebrate Thanksgiving. It was all perfect when each piece of pie was topped with whipped cream.”
Adkins began the Thanksgiving Pies tradition several years ago. She told The Journal to “be sure and thank the ladies who have helped her bake and serve each year.”
