The Macon County Senior Citizens Center held their 5th Annual Prayer Breakfast on Thursday, November 3rd. The breakfast was catered by Linda’s Cakes and Catering and began with a welcome from the Senior Citizens Center’s Director, Brenda Filson and Chairman of the Board of Directors, Shelby Linville. Linville described the Senior Citizens Center as “one of the best in the area.”

The guest speaker for the morning was Terry Ashe, a retired Army Veteran and former sheriff of Wilson County. Ashe’s speech to the crowd of senior citizens and local business employees focused on veterans and prayer. “More mothers on their knees have prayed more sons home than Generals have lead,” he told them. “I truly believe in the power of prayer.”

After Ashe spoke, Linville returned for a “special recognition.” The Senior Citizens Center added its former Chairman, Dennis Wolford, to its “Wall of Honor.” Wolford had been Chairman for 31 years before deciding to retire earlier this year. Wolford’s portrait, done by local artist Nancy Doss, will now be displayed on the Wall of Honor.

At the end of the breakfast, Linville and Filson thanked everyone for their attendance. “We appreciate every business that sponsored a table,” Linville said. This year’s breakfast saw 29 tables sponsored, more than any in the past.
