On Thursday, June 27, the Woodlawn Community Center opened it’s doors at 10:30 a.m. with 40 neighbors and friends present.

Cecelia Anderson invited everyone to join her in saying the "Pledge of Allegiance."

With Anita Weathers at the piano, everyone enjoyed singing "God Bless America."

Bruce Ray gave the opening prayer, praying for friends and neighbors who are sick and unable to attend.

Group singing was led by our song leader, Janet Ray, ending with "Amazing Grace."

This Thursday was really special. The Community Center enjoyed the day with Kern Kennedy and "The Camp Ground Express Band."

Some of their songs and music included: Beer Barrel Polka, Sometimes, Hillbilly Rock, The last dance, I hear the train a’coming, A whole lot of shakin’ going on, Waltz around Texas, Boot scooting boggie, Cold cold heart, Crying in the rain, Golden Slippers, Kansas City, Don’t tell me when it’s over, Little Darlin’ and So long now.

The Center also enjoyed Donna Gipson and Clay Faulkner, (The Sunlinners) singing "Crazy Arms."

After enjoying the program, George Wilson thanked the band and singers for coming and gave the closing prayer, blessing the food for potluck.

Everyone enjoyed their dinner and fellowship.
