Eight participants from the Mindful Care Adult Day Services program had a ball at their first field trip of 2020 — a bowling ball.

Five men and three women traveled on a New Vision Baptist Church bus to Lanes, Trains and Automobiles arcade on Jan. 17. They bowled for several hours and had a luncheon with birthday cake to honor their oldest member, Clemmie Lewis, who would turn 90 the next day.  

Lewis rolled the highest score and the second-oldest participant, 84-year-old Thessalonia Coney, came in a close second. 

“While it may be difficult to find trust and integrity in some of today’s geriatric programs, one will find them at Mindful Care,” said Cindy Peaster, one of the chaperones, whose father, Jerry Walker, is in the program.

Mindful Care is the only state-licensed adult day services program in Rutherford County for people ages 55 or older. For information, call Keneshia Sweet at (615) 542-4371.
