    The Log Cabin Quilters met Thursday, July 7, at the Levy County Quilt Museum. Fellowship is always great each Thursday. We visit with each other, catch up on each others activities, doctor visits, latest projects and vacations. We learn of sick friends that need to be added to the prayer list and are so thankful for everyone who comes to meet each week.
      Greg and six boys were out Tuesday and as we have had rain the grass is green and growing.  The flowers are so pretty and blooming. Thanks Lancaster.

  • Special to the Citizen
    Haven Hospice volunteer Shellie Shelton truly embodies the meaning of care and compassion.
    Shelton drives Haven patient Mary Wardlaw from Bronson to Chiefland and back every month to shop at Walmart. Shelton helps Wardlaw move about the store and pull items from the top shelf, as Wardlaw is unable. Shelton and Wardlaw enjoy the travel time together and have found they have a lot in common. Wardlaw would not be able to do her monthly shopping it if wasn’t for Haven on Wheels.
