The annual Stockdale Senior Citizens Luncheon was held Dec. 19 in the Stockdale Community Building. The event, which has been held for more than 20 years, was hosted by the Stockdale Garden Club and the Stockdale Chamber of Commerce.

It takes many hands to pull this event off, and volunteers from all over the county stepped up to help. The tables were festive with decorations made by the Stockdale Boy Scout Troop No. 137 and colorful placemats made by the Stockdale Independent School District elementary classes. Members of the Stockdale High School National Honor Society helped set up, served, and cleaned. The Garden Club purchased the tree and decorations to add to the festivity.

This year, door prizes were given to those in attendance. The door prizes went over well and kept our guests in house for a longer period of time.

Almost 300 plates were served -- in house and delivered to homebound seniors, as well as to the Stockdale Nursing Center. The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, precinct employees, and other employees of the county delivered the plates, under the guidance of Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Richard L. “Dickie” Jackson.

We could not do this without donations from businesses and individuals. Their generosity allows this tradition to continue. Citizens and church members from the Stockdale area baked and donated pies. As a result of the abundance, we sold the leftover pies, and the $94 raised went into the 2013 Senior Citizens Luncheon Fund.
