Thirty-four seniors were treated to a countryside meal of beef stew, cranberry salad, rolls, and apple crisp on November 11, 2011, at Chapel Church at 11:30 pm.  Dan Steen welcomed the guests, briefly talked about the significance of Veterans Day to his family, and then led the group in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Sue Koster read a Thanksgiving poem and gave the meal blessing.  After the meal, Sue read a script about some necessary items from days gone by while Karen Handorf showed each item, including a washboard, corn peg, sadiron, double tree, curling iron, straightedge razor, hair clippers, churn, kerosene lamp, and corn dryer.  The group enjoyed telling their own memories, and it was concluded that we are glad for more modern conveniences; however, we all agreed with Leona Osten who said she missed the sense of family today compared to the good old days. A Veteran’s Day poem was read, and we ended the fun afternoon by singing the national anthem.  Thank you to the Chapel Volunteers who served the meal.  Many seniors also attended the Veteran’s Day program at Westbrook at 2:00 pm that day.  The next meeting will be Friday, Dec. 9, at the Festival of Trees.
