Keenagers enjoy nursery rhyme competition

MOORE HAVEN — Not every person who is at least 50 years of age gets to return to preschool. Following a covered dish luncheon, Keenagers enjoyed a competition featuring nursery rhymes. It was soon evident that Laura Daniels was going to win, as she even knew what Tuesday’s Child is Full of. Sabrina and Brenda King were visiting their uncle, Kirby Sullivan, to escape Florence as it blew through North Carolina, and joined the fun of the Back to School Party, winning second and third place. Evidently, Elmore Sullivan and Margaret Brown still remembered what Peter Piper Picked and Jack Spratt couldn’t eat, as they were runners-up. All prizes were school oriented, and Elmore assured everyone he’d be passing out autographs when the Lake Okeechobee News published his photo.

Special to the Lake Okeechobee News Keenagers display prizes for the nursery rhyme competition. Left to right are Margaret Brown, Laura Daniels, Sabrina King, Brenda King and Elmore Sullivan.

The “Back to School” party, following a summer break, was held in the Fellowship Hall of First Baptist Church. The church sponsors Keenagers — for anyone 50 years old or older — to enjoy a monthly get-together. However, membership in the church — or any church — is not a requirement. Meetings are at noon on third Thursdays, and usually at the church, from September through May. Next month, weather permitting, a fish fry is planned, and will be held at Bobbi Brown’s house on Riverside Drive.
