Celebrating Fathers

| June 22, 2015

COSHOCTON – Windsorwood Place celebrated Fathers’ Day with a country and western theme on Saturday afternoon, June 20, as “Elvis” entertained the residents and guests in attendance and Bob Bigrigg played a mean “air guitar” to the soundtrack of “Rocky Top”. In a solemn moment, everyone participated in thanking veterans as several veterans that reside at the facility proudly displayed what is called “The Honor Flag”, which is the flag that lists all those lost on September 11, 2001. Pictured is Elvis impersonator Eric Bressi with residents Lister Endsley and Lewis “Ed” Baker, who both served in World War II. Baker was a POW of the Germans for well over a year. Activities Director Marla Myers organized the day for the residents with western style food, cowboy hats, western garb and more.

About the Author ()

I live with my beautiful wife Nancy on a small farm just outside Coshocton. We have been married for thirty two years and have two grown children, Jessica and Jacob. Jessica is married to Aaron Mencer and they are employed with Coshocton City Schools. Jacob is a sophomore at Kent State University. I graduated from River View High School, have a Bachelor’s Degree from North Carolina Wesleyan University and am actively involved with the Roscoe United Methodist Church, serve on several local committees and am a member of the Coshocton Kiwanis Club, having served as Past-President. I love reading, especially military thrillers, the Civil War and history in general. My goal is to write a novel. My wife and I are also AdvoCare distributors and encourage anyone wanting to lose weight, gain energy and better health to explore AdvoCare at our website; www.fortunes4advocare.com. I love the media field, innovative technology and have worked in newspapers for over 30 years – in fact, my first job was delivering newspapers. The Beacon is a dream made possible by the support of this community and a great team. I hope to continue serving Coshocton County for many years.
