New LC Senior Service project director gives a shout out

Dear Editor,

What a way to be introduced to the Community. I am Debra Hardin, the new Project Director for the Limestone County Senior Services. Being new to the Groesbeck area, I was so proud to be a part, although new, still a part of this community recently. As the Project Director for the Limestone County Senior Centers, we seniors asked the community to donate for the Hurricane Harvey victims. Amazing turnout for 24-hour notice, the community came through shining like the stars they are. We had a pickup truckload FULL of much needed items. OUR GOAL IS TO BE A BLESSING to the ones in need. Thank you to Limestone County Senior Citizen Volunteers for your time and contributions. To all who contributed Big and small beginning with Devi Wilson, Jeff Melasky to Mimi n Carolyn, Pat Ogden, BROOKSHIRES, Appraisal district Employees & family, Mi Rancho, Iris McMahon, Judy Terry, Katherine Capps, Laura Avery, and other anonymous drop offs. There are many displaced families that evacuated into Waco and Dallas area hotels and many ways to assist from providing personal hygiene, clothing and New undergarments to assisting with temporary shelter placement. I’d like to Thank Marina Guzman with Mi Rancho Mexican restaurant in Groesbeck who has prepared meals for delivery to surrounding town hotels that are housing victims of the flooding of hurricane Harvey. I want to give a BIG THANK YOU to Sara Rodriguez and her family for all the behind the scenes work they did, and driving our supplies to Houston for us. Sara and her husband also donated a flat bottom boat to the Fire Department to use in rescues. God bless the Citizens of Limestone County for contributing their time and efforts to assist those in desperate need of rescue STILL! We here at the Senior Center thank you all with our hearts full of amazement. Once again Texas citizens came through in a pinch. We are still accepting donations at the Senior Center, 510 W State Street in Groesbeck.
