November 7, 2017 - (Album) - Focused Care of Center got into the Halloween spirit hosting an employee costume contest with the winner receiving a Halloween wreath of candy. First place went to Reagan Link who dressed as a ninja. Her son was also dressed as a ninja.

Later in the day trick-or-treaters were invited to visit the facility residents wearing their best costumes. After traveling the halls, the trick-or-treaters and residents gathered in the activity room of Focused Care Center for a costume contest.

The judges included Lakendra Weir, Social Worker; Rose Davis, Resident; and Holly Adams, Administrator. The judges were presented with a variety of great costumes to look at and choose from.

0-5 category the winner was Karson Link - Ninja.

November 4, 2017 - It's fall back time... Sunday, November 5th at 2am, daylight savings time ends and clocks roll backward 1 hour.

At the beginning or end of daylight savings time is a good time to do a routine check of items in your house. Test items such as smoke detectors and install new batteries to help keep your family and home safe. Check your hot water heaters and other areas which aren't seen regularly.

Clean out dryer vent hoses which can become clogged with lint and cause dryers to not perform as well. Lint is highly combustible and decreased airflow can cause overheating of the exhaust ducting resulting in a fire. After inspecting and cleaning out the dryer vent ducting, check to make sure when you push the dryer back in place that the duct doesn't have a bend causing poor air flow.

Lastly, annual checkups for pets is great too!

November 1, 2017 - Center Garden Club has selected for its “One Wonder” feature the absolutely stunning Japanese persimmon tree, located at 212 Houston Street in Center, the family home of Marilyn Ballard and her late husband, Larry Ballard. Marilyn noted that historical accounts of her house indicate that this Japanese persimmon was planted in 1897—one hundred and twenty years ago. It is such a beauty, an autumnal delight: a grand -- and as Halloween approaches, leafless tree with its hundreds of orange globes set against the sky, especially the night sky. It is definitely “One Wonder” that deserves viewing!

Center Garden Club meets at noon on the second Wednesday of each from September through May. Guests are welcome. For further information, contact Carolyn Bounds at 598-3414 or any other CGC member.
