Once again, hundreds of Lincoln County children received a gift and the kids and their families enjoyed a Christmas meal at the annual Winterfest event held in the Lincoln County High School cafeteria. Kendra Mitchell, first-time chairman, said 350 people enjoyed the meal and just over 200 children, 12 and under, received a gift. “We provided a hot Christmas meal and were able to aid families that need a little help this year,” Mitchell said. The hot meal was prepared by high school cafeteria workers; 11 of whom began preparing for the event early in the morning.

Dear Editor, For average restaurant service, I will leave a minimum of 15 percent for a tip. First, if I give my complete order when a server first comes to the table. That is also how I receive my meal. The drinks, appetizers, salads and meal all come at the same time. I came to a sit-down restaurant to enjoy a meal and socialize with a lady friend. If I wanted fast food, I would have gone to a drive-through window. I will purposely order my drinks first. When a server returns with my appetizers, I will order my meal.

For the third year in a row, my retired Navy fiancé and I (an Army veteran) enjoyed the wonderful Veteran's Day free meal that Applebee's so graciously offers all Armed Forces vets and active duty personnel. The meal was delicious, the atmosphere was crowded with old and young military people - some in their uniforms, dressed from camouflage fatigues to full dress mess uniforms complete with bow tie. It was great to hear all the military people reminiscing about their military service, about friends sadly lost, about friends gratefully reunited.

Four days a week, Mabel Davis spends an hour driving around town, delivering hot meals to homebound seniors. Mondays are spent working with Homecare program clients, doing everything from washing dishes and folding laundry to grocery shopping. The seniors look forward to her visits for the company as much as the needed household help. “They look forward to it because they're so lonesome,” Davis said. The home delivery meal program and the Homecare program are two of several programs Kentucky River Foothills offers local seniors.
