Stockdale area senior citizens enjoy festive holiday luncheon
Area Stockdale citizens and Wilson County officials enjoy the Dec. 18 annual Stockdale Senior Citizens Luncheon held in the Stockdale Community Building.
The annual Stockdale Senior Citizens Luncheon was held Dec. 18 in the Stockdale Community Building. The Stockdale Garden Club and Stockdale Chamber of Commerce hosted the event, which has been held for more than 20 years.
Area senior citizens look forward to this luncheon of turkey and all the trimmings, and to fellowship with one another in a festive atmosphere.
Almost 300 plates were served -- in-house and delivered to the homebound seniors. The Wilson County Sheriff’s Office, precinct employees, and other employees and elected officials delivered the plates to the homebound, under the guidance of Wilson County Pct. 4 Justice of the Peace Richard L. “Dickie” Jackson.
Many volunteers stepped up to cut pies, serve the dinner, wait on tables, hand out the many door prizes, and clean up. Among these were students from Stockdale High School and Junior High School. The tables were festive with placemats made by Stockdale Elementary School students.
Two turkey baskets with all the trimmings were awarded to Lela McGuffin and Jackie Garner. Contents of the baskets were donated by Lowe’s Super Market.
The Garden Club and Chamber of Commerce could not do this without the donations from businesses and the many individuals. Their generosity is what allows this annual event to continue, organizers said.
