Kenton by Paulette Wiens
On Wednesday, Feb. 14, Woodworth Senior Services (WSS) Coordinator Colleen Elliott and her board members, the Ladies Auxiliary and the Kenton and Area Lions Club helped in holding a Valentine lunch at the Kenton Memorial Hall at 12 noon. You could purchase tickets on two door prizes, gift baskets - one for ladies and one for men. Lucky winners were Torie Carter for the men’s basket and Bob Curtis for the ladies’ basket. Punch was provided as a refreshment before lunch.
A delicious roast beef (with Yorkshire pudding), roast pork meal and all the trimmings were provided to approximately 40 people plus takeouts. Meat carvers were Keith Bennett and his daughter Sandy. The Ladies Auxiliary helped with the food and the Kenton and Area Lions Club poured coffee and tea to the diners. Colleen Elliott said the Grace before the meal and thanked everyone for coming. She said that without the help of all those involved the event may not have taken place as she had to be away on a family matter. She was back in time to welcome everyone.
In our community, when help is needed people always rise up to meet any occasion.
Deepest sympathy from the community is extended to Colleen Elliott on the passing of her brother Don Elliott.
