On Friday, February 12, Live Oak had a Valentine/Birthday Celebration. Darlene Kiernan played piano and Dorothy Dillon sang many old-time favorites for the residents to enjoy. Nellie Luttrell’s birthday was on Valentine’s Day; her daughter brought a beautiful cake decorated with red roses, “Happy Birthday” was sung to her, and she received her early birthday gifts. Refreshments were served and everyone enjoyed the afternoon.
Valentine’s Day was special. Blanco National Bank employees as well as Jan Brieger of Red Bud Cafe and others brought heart suckers and candy hearts to pass out to residents at Live Oak. Activities Director Pauline Walker played music from the 1940s and 1950s and served punch while residents enjoyed their gifts of candy, chocolates, and Valentines. That Sunday, Kay Kuebel of the Lutheran Church also came with family and friends to pass out roses to residents in the dining room and down the halls to residents in rooms.
Judy and Bobby Brewer’s son Bruce finished first again Saturday in a 48-mile mountain bike race, which was held at Eagle Camp in Rock Springs, Texas. Bruce said this was a real hard race, but he completed it in six hours. The race was part of the Texas Star Marathon Championship and the win at Camp Eagle clinches the series title in the 50 plus age group. This win gives him first in his class and eighth overall. Judy and Bobby are real proud of him. So am I – I probably couldn’t ride a city block without falling over. Way to go, Bruce!
And last but certainly not least, a Happy Birthday to Mr. P.C. Rust. To celebrate PC’s 77th birthday, Betty organized a party for family and friends on February 12. Betty and PC’s granddaughter, Brandy, and her family assisted in making the evening a success. A special attendee was Betty and PC’s grandson, Thomas Broyles, who left on February 13 to complete Army training. They appreciate everyone who attended and made it a memorable evening. Family and friends are very, very happy to have Betty home as well.
