Happy Father’s Day!

By DIANE BASDEN

Special to the News-Capital

Happy Father’s Day to all of you special dads that read this column. It is a proven fact that every child born has a father and mother.

Since it is so hot, it’s time to hit the shade, lake and Kool-Aid.

It will not be long until school starts back, so parents, start buying those school supplies and clothes now.

Lou Ann Knell reported that Sydnie Quinton, 4, has finished her chemotherapy treatments and now has started her radiation treatments.

Lou Ann also said that her father, Charles Quinton, is doing real good since his surgery.

Marie Monks, of Quinton, remained in Haskell County Hospital in Stigler as of June 11. She had extensive surgery there on May 10. Please pray for Marie.

My recent visitors were Martha Montgomery, Shelly, Chesney, and Skyler Ballard, Georgia Brunson, Hattie Seabolt, Charlene Daniel, the Rev. Eddie Dye, the Rev. Charles and Shirley Thomas, April, Joshua and Holly Murray, Lou Ann Knell, and Peyton Knell, and Colene Basden.

Charlene Daniel held a Bible study on June 5 at Quinton Manor. Those present were Dorothy Degroot, Eva Bennight, Pauline Giles, Hattie Seabolt and myself.

I held a prayer meeting on June 7 at Quinton Manor. Those present were Tressa Noble, Iva Hayes, Dorothy Degroot, Eva Bennight, Geri Aby, Pauline Giles, Hattie Seabolt, Peggy Rhyms, Dolores Wiles and Sally Whiteside.

The Quinton Senior Citizens dinner on June 8 had 37 present at Quinton Community Center. Mildred Dellinger gave the blessing over the meal. The meal included chicken strips, potatoes, gravy, salad, blackeyed peas, vegetables, hot rolls, cobbler, ice cream and drinks.

Georgia Brunson visited Sally Whiteside, Hattie Seabolt, and Carl and Frances Alverson on June 7 at Quinton Manor.

Bell Williams, of McAlester, visited her mother, Lora Bunyard, at Quinton Manor last week. She also played the piano for everyone at the home.
