Residents of Green Meadow Haven were treated to fresh home baked pies with their afternoon coffee on Tuesday. Ladies from two local churches pitched in to bring a thanksgiving treat to the residents.
The serving of sweet potato and pumpkin pies is an annual tradition. It was begun by Sharon Adkins 9 or 10 years ago. Asked why she did it, Adkins said, “They didn’t have homemade pie. It is a reminder of home and family. They deserve good homemade pies at Thanksgiving.”
Adkins called upon friends and members of Wesley Chapel and First Methodist churches. They baked many pies. As a special treat, Paige Bell made a huge container of fresh whipped cream. No artificial whip this year. The Journal was treated to a sample and it was beyond delicious.
Rev. Curtis Carroll reminded residents of the many things they have to be thankful for. Carroll commented that, “We are thankful for you too!” He gave the invocation thanking God for the blessings He showers upon us every day.
Residents who were able to come to the dining hall again this year enjoyed homemade pies with homemade whipped cream with their coffee. And Adkins and her helpers carried pie and coffee to many who had to stay in their rooms. It was just in time for Thanksgiving. Adkins said, “They needed pie!”
