WINCHESTER HAPPENINGS

Patsy and I will lead a walking historical home tour and walk through the cemetery, weather permitting, beginning at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 27 (by the way, that is my sister Janice’s birthday). We will meet at the gazebo in the middle of Winchester.

As most of you know we have been experiencing some increased vandalism in town. During the Caramel Festival, we had atheft of a borrowed skeleton where someone removed the head and threw the remainder over the fence. Thanks to Sam Osborne who retrieved the parts. Also, I had purchased mums for the flower pots in town and one of them came up missing. Pretty aggravating.

We have lots of requests for healing prayer. Bill Parker was recently a patient in Clermont Mercy but is now home. Beverly Stephenson was a patient at Bethesda North and should be home by now. Xavier Roberts, the grandson of Methodist Pastor Gregg Roberts is 17 and a senior at Hillsboro High School has been diagnosed wth Hodgkin’s lymphoma. He had started chemotherapy but was in intensive care in Dayton Children’s Hospital (as of Sunday) with an infection.

Kathy Perkins was recently a patient at Adams County Regional Medical Center being treated for pneumonia. She is home but having significant breathing problems. Pastor Dan and Cheryl Harrison are spending time with his parents. His mother was diagnosed with acute leukemia and is not doing well. His father was also hospitalized but is doing better. Keep all of these folks and families in your prayers.

The Winchester Clinic Office will open on Monday, Oct. 5. Cherry Cousins, CNP is rejoining ACRMC as the Nurse Practitioner and will maintain a primary care practice seeing patients of all ages. Office visits will be scheduled weekly on Monday and Tuesday from 2-7 p.m. and on Wednesday and Thursday from 9 a.m.- 2 p.m. Nurse follow-up visits will be available on Fridays. I am excited that Cherry is coming back to Winchester.

Winchester’s Past (Florence Bryson): The Purcell family have pictures in the new Winchester History book. The three children all grew up here and graduated from Winchester High School. The two boys both served in WW II and after the war the family moved to Dayton. The father, Charlie Purcell was born in 1886 and served in WW I. He married Nellie Wasson who was born in 1896. Nellie was the daughter of James and Mary Wasson. She and Charlie were divorced and he died in 1954 and is buried in the Winchester cemetery. Nellie died in Dayton in 1984 and is buried at Springboro. Both boys, Kennesaw, born in 1921 and died in 1979 and Philip, born in1922 and died in 2003, are buried in the Dayton area. Luvah born 1926 is a widow and currently lives in Dayton.

Remember that we depend on information from others which is due by Sunday evening and can be sent by calling 937-695-9977 (leave a message) or by email @ japorter45697@sbcglobal.net.
