HINTON - Thanks to some kind and generous donors, we have been able to send delicious Apples and Oranges to our Seniors along with their lunches. We have also received some Brownies and other dessert items which we really appreciate getting. Some businesses are slowly resuming to open around town and it is good to see people wearing Masks and keeping distances from one another. Eldon and Donna Mae McCumber were visited by their son Steven, his wife Nancy, their daughter Hannah and her Fiance who were here from Florida. They all visited and ate outdoors and had an enjoyable afternoon. Prayers are requested for Terrell Coffey who is recovering from Surgery, Cleona Oltermann who will undergo surgery on Wednesday. Also, Darlene Tedford, Julie Homier, Jane Marrow, Vivian Moore, Bert, Don, Eldon and Donna Mae McCumber. A big Thank You to all of our Home-bound meal deliverers for their dedicated service. A big Congratulations to the Hinton Graduates of 2020 !!! Until next time, please continue to stay well, wear masks and don't get discouraged. We will manage these times together.

HINTON - Now that Mother's Day is behind us, we can't help but wonder what Memorial Day will be like. Observance will be Mon. May 25, We have learned that some of our members who are currently in Nursing Facilities are doing well and none have been affected with the Virus. We are so thankful for that and continue to pray that they will stay that way. A short drive around town has become a daily routine for some and that does help to break up the monotony. As things are slowly beginning to open up we are reminded to be cautious and continue to be safe. Thank you again to all of our Home Meal deliverers. We could not serve our Seniors without your help. Stay safe and remember to check on friends and neighbors by telephone conversations. Things will get better and when we can get together again face to face, imagine the stories we will have to share. Until next time remember, we are in this together and we are still in His loving care.

Senate Review by Senator Darcy Jech

Body
OKLAHOMA - The Senate reconvened at the Capitol this past week for the first time since April 6 when we approved Governor Stitt’s catastrophic health emergency declaration. We extended the governor’s emergency declaration this past week, which gives him a temporary expansion of power to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. We also addressed some important policy bills and passed a Fiscal Year 2021 budget, which is now awaiting action by the governor.

HINTON - While many things are still being closed, it was a comforting feeling to learn that a couple Churches in Hinton were opened for Sunday Services. As previously mentioned, our Site will be closed during the month of May but we will continue to deliver Meals and still offer the option of curb delivery. Whoever came up with placing large Photos of Hinton 2020 Graduates in the windows of Hinton business should be" Thanked" for that great idea.. This giv es everyone driving around an opportunity to see what a great graduating class we have. Ideas like this help to bring smiles and encouragement during these challenging times. The warm, sunny days are also being enjoyed. I received a note from Betty Fulton who used to reside in Hinton and she still likes to hear about what is happening here. Congratulations to LB & Myrtle Ann Cummins and Wanda Hartline on the birth of their new great-grandson. We hope everyone is staying safe even though boredom might be setting in. Until next time, remember "This Too Shall Pass".
