Senior Dinner - Nov. 1, 2014 @ The Garrison at Fort Harrison, Indpls.

The Senior Dinner suggested by Delores Thornton over 35 years ago has been held annually Every year except 2013. We lost both Aunt Roxie Chislom Cade and Daisy Williams Lewis (Mama) that year and we just weren't in the mood. Those two ladies had NEVER missed a Senior Dinner since its inception. 

What a wonderful family time we had at this affair; it was standing room only. The help was to be commended and the food was really good. We had a balloon release for our ancestors before we entered the Garrison.

The Second WWC Walk @ Pogues Run - October 2014

We did this walk to raise money for the Senior Dinner which was held at the Garrison at Fort Harrison

It was great and once again we had water and refreshments for walkers and this year we even had Walkers' Bibs!!

 

***********************************************************************************

The First Power Walk (2009 on Millersville Rd) was the brainchild of

Marcia Worthington & Delores Thornton (This was to raise money for the Family Revival started on the suggestion of Marcia Worthington and Delores Thornton) And, we also had money for the Senior Dinner that year!!

The coaches were Ronald Williams, Sr., and James Lewis

we also had a Nurses' Station a Water Station, fruit and power drinks. and my son-in-law, Lamont Perry provided walking meters (from State Farm).  

A lot of planning went into this!!

 

 ********************************************************************************

 

 Mama (Daisy Williams Lewis) went home to be with the LORD  October 30, 2013

Rest on Babe~

You left a void that only Heaven can fill. The mother of 13, grandmother, great-grandmother, great-great-grandmother to many. And a friend to all who knew and loved her.

 

 

 

******************************************************************************************* 

August 2013 

I asked Uncles Ronald and Richard if we could plan a Family Picnic in Bethel and they were all for it. It was one of the best times we've had in recent years. I just threw the word out to the online group and also notified folks who are not online and in a matter of days we had it altogether! Thanks to Kenya Carr and son Julian Smith for putting up the tents. To Jimmy Lewis and Orlando (Spanky) Collins for working the grill. And to all who came!!

 

 

 

 

************************************************************************************ 

 

We're preparing for our old time Tent Revival 

Saturday, August 10th @ 6pm at Greater Galilee 4375 N. Arlington

There were not a lot of family members in attendance but the Spirit was there and that is all that is necessary. Uncle Ronald Williams and Connie Lewis Clark suggested this years ago and it's always a hit!

 

 

 ******************************************************

 

 Aunt Roxie Ann Chislom Cade went home on Tuesday, July 30, 2013. She was funeralized on Tuesday, August 6th. She was our oldest living and truly one of a very short list of folks who was dear to EVERYONE! We bless God for allowing us to have her for almost a century~
