Clients at the Howard County Children's Center on Wednesday took part in a "pink out" to raise awareness about breast cancer. Nurse Kayla Martin says it helps the clients get involved and give back to the community. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. It is the second leading cause of death among women. Each year it is estimated that over 220,000 women in the United States will be diagnosed with breast cancer and more than 40,000 will die. Martin says she will also be holding a class for the female clients to discuss more about breast cancer and how to do self-exams. The children's center each year also raises money for the local relay for life and works to raise awareness about all types of cancer.
A local quilting club has donated 38 quilts to the Howard County Veterans Affairs Office. The quilts will be donated to area veterans. The fabric used to make these quilts were donated to the quilting club by Dewey, Kim & Staci Conatser and Adam & Samantha Young in memory of Raymond & Willie Dell Lindsey who had gotten the velour material when they worked at the Howard Manufacturing Plant formally in Nashville.
After the plant closed and moved overseas, Willie Dell worked at Walmart in ladies' wear and the fabric department. She loved to cook, sew, and quilt. Dell died of esophagus cancer in March 2013. She was preceded in death by her husband, Raymond who died in June 1995. He had sold insurance and used cars, also working at Nashville Funeral Home. Dell was a WWII veteran in the 86th Chemical Mortar Battalion where he received a Silver Star and a Purple Heart.
Those who worked on the quilts include: (pictured) Jean Reed, Elizabeth Crawford, and Fannie Mae Lockeby...(not pictured) Leila Lockeby, Shirley Westfall, Marie Weaver, Glenda Rice, and Columbia Winchester.
