Mt. Zion Club went on a field trip to Clinton riding the OATS bus; the OATS driver picked each lady up at their home. We made it to Clinton at 11 a.m. with shopping at the Samaritan Center with each lady getting a bargain. June Marshall met us there. After a sightseeing trip through the park, some didn’t know Clinton had a park. We ate lunch at the Golden Corral and then shopping at Wal-Mart, then being delivered to each home. Was a very enjoyable day, we think more people should take advantage of going on the bus. Especially with the gas prices, there was room in the back for all of our purchases. Mt. Zion Club will meet with Marge Zink Oct 17. Plan to make lap robes and walker bags for a selected nursing home, more details later. Bring a lap robe ready to assemble if possible.

Dixie Peterson and Marge Zink kept doctors’ appointments in Lee’s Summit on Tuesday. They met Stacy in Clinton who took them out to lunch and shopping before the appointments.

Mabel Siegismund thinks she has traded places with her children. Three out of five children gathered to take pictures of her going on the OATS bus. Reminding her she always took their pictures the first time they rode the school bus. Mabel hopes they enjoyed their bus ride as much as she enjoyed her day.

Julia and John Snethen have been busy running the Oats Bus and Julia keeping doctors’ appointments. Julia took Cheryl Farrell to the doctors’ on Thursday after her two surgeries and found out she is cancer free. The Lord does work miracles. Julia, Cheryl, Shella and friend, Tabby, attended the Renaissance Festival on Saturday, and Julia wore a pair of tennis shoes that she hadn’t wore in about 10 years and she got blood blisters on her feet. Now she has trouble walking. See Julia, you need to break them in again.
