Baptist Homes for Children Holds Annual Back-to-School Style Show

Oklahoma Baptist Homes for Children (OBHC) will be host to its annual Back-to-School Style Show for the Baptist Home for Girls (BHG), in Madill, on Saturday, Aug. 19, at 11 a.m. at the Ardmore Convention Center.

The purpose of the Back-to-School Style Show is to create community involvement and financial support for the BHG and the girls in their care.

With the money raised, a special fund is set up to provide yearly clothing and other basic needs for the girls living at the Baptist Home for Girls.

“The Style Show is always a special time for our girls. It is amazing what it does for their self-esteem to see so many people come just to see them,” said Laura DeHart, OBHC development representative. “It’s almost magical, the transformation that can take place in a young lady when she is given the chance to shine.”

Brookside Nursing Center: Volunteers Welcome at Nursing Home

By Summer Bryant Brookside Admissions Coordinator

A nursing home is like a small town. It won’t be long before everyone is greeting you by your name. By volunteering, you’re guaranteed to make a few new friends. I know what you are thinking, this is not your usual crowd. But, believe it or not, they were your age at one time, and they can probably teach you a thing or two about life. Many of our residents are veterans, former teachers, homemakers, and social workers. Learning about life from those who have lived for a while is an invaluable gift.

Volunteers can help with a wide array of activities, including bingo, crafts, reading, musical performances, as well as just sitting and visiting with them. Your time and commitment can vary from daily, to once a year, or anything in between. The nursing home may benefit by gaining an extra helper, but the volunteer and resident are rewarded with smiles and new friendships.

Summertime Blues at the Madill Art Club

By Linda Whalon

 

Remember, as kids, how we missed our friends over the summer school break? Even though it was great being out of school and free to sleep in and play all day, people we loved to talk to and learn from were missed during that break. Well, that is how it feels for some of us at the Madill Art

 

Club during June, July, and August. Our normal classes taught on Wednesdays by Dianne Bennett and on Thursdays by Nita McDaniel bring people together who don’t normally see each other anywhere else. We say goodbye in June with a “See you in September.”
