Singing as beautiful as angels was heard at the Hunterdale Volunteer Fire Station on Wednesday at the June meeting of the Hunterdale Seniors. Nancy Joyner was singing for them.

Nancy and her husband have entertained the seniors before, but because they both have been ill, only Nancy was able to come and sing for us. She sang with taped music because she can’t play her guitar yet. Nancy brought her 99-year-old mother, Mrs. Agnes Jernigan, with her. They all live on the family farm near Aulander, North Carolina. They own a recording studio and have a stage where they have hosted “The Red Barn Bluegrass Festival” twice yearly. Anne Griffin brought shirts, tapes, etc., she had purchased when she attended there.

Nancy is a Christian lady who sings hymns and gospel music for churches, organziations and festivals. She sang and gave testimony to the blessings she and her family have received during their illnesses.

Everyone was so happy to see her again and enjoyed visiting with her as luncheon was served.

Food was collected and delivered to the Franklin Cooperative Ministry.

At the May meeting there were memories of mothers shared. Pictures and stories were enjoyed.

On July 11, the seniors celebrated Independence Day with a picnic at the Dairy Queen in Franklin.

After the Lord’s Prayer and the Pledge of Allegiance — everyone was presented a small flag by Anne Griffin — a delicious luncheon with an ice cream sunday for dessert was enjoyed by all.

Food was also collected then for the Franklin Cooperative Ministery.

The next meeting will be on Wednesday, Aug. 21, in the fire department.
