The Seasons welcomed members of Progressive CEOS to their independent living facility for their May 10th meeting. Two long time members of the club are now residents at The Seasons and were able to attend for the first time since the Covid pandemic.
President Patty Gray began the meeting with “The Leadership Garden” inspirational reading. Susie McCree presented the lesson on Point Pleasant – History Meets Mystery. Early settlers and native Americans inhabited the region, sometimes in peace and sometimes at war. Cornstalk and General Andrew Lewis were foes who eventually agreed to a peaceful settlement. Mad Anne Bailey saved the day in 1791 when she made the horse ride from Fort Lee to Fort Savannah in Lewisburg to obtain ammunition. More recently Moth Man made an appearance and has become a legend that draws tourists to the area. In 1967 tragedy struck when the Silver Bridge collapsed and took the lives of 46 people.
Betty Jo McNeel gave the Health Motivator lesson on summer squash, a tasty variety of vegetable rich in nutrients. Jean Foley was honored on her 97th birthday.
