Christmas came in July to some of the residents of Winchester Centre for Health & Rehabilitation. Members of the Towne and Country Homemakers Club made special tote bags for residents in wheel chairs and those using walkers. Fabric and supplies were donated by the members and fabric samples were donated by Something From Nothing Upholstery in Lexington.
Rita Rogers, activity director for the Centre, arranged for many of the recipients to meet in the activities area to receive the bags. Deanna Wright, president of the Towne and Country Homemakers and Betty Bonar, a club member, presented them at that time while Sue Staton and Connie Harms, club members, distributed the tote bags to individual rooms. Fifty-eight tote bags were delivered.
Other club members include Sandy Hiles, Denise Knoeble, Sheila McCord, Shirley Nickell, Mary Lou Shearer, Helen Stephens, Billye Jean Stigall, Teresa Taylor and Donna Utley.
