ELIZABETHTOWN — The Rev. Chris Denny welcomed the Retired School Personnel of Bladen County to the Elizabethtown Presbyterian Church for their September meeting and he sang a hymn for the invocation.
Katherine Inscoe Taylor conducted the meeting as Trish Inscoe served coffee and donuts.
The speaker for the morning was Brandi Tedder DeVane, RN, who talked about the subject “What About Your Health?” She said that in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle it is important that you eat a balanced diet and have some form of regular exercise. Seniors should go to a primary doctor routinely, engage in scheduled social activities, routinely adhere to a sleep schedule and use good hygiene, and drink plenty of fluids. Vitamins can help.
Taylor distributed committee assignments for this year and Rufus Lloyd gave a legislative report. Brenda Smith Sykes was welcomed as a new member. Dorothy Peterson was recognized and commended for her 32 years on the planning board of Elizabethtown and Juanita Jones for piano playing for 60 years at First Baptist of Bladenboro. The meeting was adjourned by Taylor.
