Golden Hearts gathered recently at Fairview Baptist Church.

Golden Hearts at Fairview Baptist Church met recently.

Approximately 48 people were in attendance including guests from First Baptist Church in Noble. Since April is the deadline for paying taxes, the theme and table decorations were a light-hearted take of “Our Money Went to Pay Taxes.”

The menu consisted of beans, home-fried potatoes, spinach, slaw and cobblers. The placemats were cut from grocery sacks and empty cans served as vases for the flowers on each table. Deryl and Betty Kastner of Noble, along with their team, provided the music.

The group also told of their volunteer work with the Disaster Relief Ministry of the Union Baptist Association from Norman.

In addition to serving at disaster sites in Oklahoma this past year, the unit also was called to help at disasters in Alabama, Missouri, North Dakota and Michigan.

The unit has the following help capabilities: chain saw trailer, mud out trailer, feeding trailer, and shower trailer. They related that the travel and work was hard but was very rewarding, and they encourage more volunteers take the training to become a part of this ministry.

Golden Hearts meet on the first Friday of the month at Fairview Baptist Church for a meal and fellowship. Senior Citizens from around the area are invited to attend. For more information contact the church at 273-8790.
