What a wonderful blessing that I was able to do a Christmas show with some of my family today!
My older brother Daniel, my youngest brother Douglas and his wife Jane and daughter Jennifer, my daughter Rachel and her spouse Donny Edwards, and my lady Sheila joined me in studio for what turned out to be lots of laughs and hugs. And Smoky, Rachel and Donny’s dog was with us as well. Emily Garcia worked the sound board and I think was somewhat amused to see so many Gwilts in one place; and all getting along too! Daughter #2 (child # 3) called in from California to report on her Hanukkah and Christmas celebrations. And Jessie’s Mom, Terry also shared a wonderful story about one of her young students.
Not much else to say, other than I am most thankful for the opportunity to be able to share some of my family with you and yours. I hope that you were able to share some good times with your friends and family this holiday season.
Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa and all other warm greetings to you and yours.
Dr. Sandy C. Gregory, NCBAM’s director, and Jim Edminson, their director of marketing and public relations were my special guests this week. NC BAM has formed a partnership with the NC Office of the State Fire Marshal to bring about NC BAM’s Priority #1 Prevention program. NC BAM’s staff members are trained and ready to present “Fall & Fire Prevention” workshops. The number to call for information and assistance is 1-877-506-2226.
Also, Debi Lee of the Centralina Area Agency on Aging was in the studio preparing for her debut show as host of Radio 4 the Ages on May 4th. And from the road somewhere in Pennsylvania, Lieutenant Daniel Gwilt, Syracuse, NY Fire Department (retired) called in with some wonderfully pertinent information about fire safety for all ages. His insights were to the point and may in fact have saved a life for a listener in the audience! Finally, Jonathan Kimble, the Wellness Director from Westminster Towers spent the final few minutes with us.
If y0u have an interest in fire and fall safety for adults of all ages, listen to this informative and interesting segment of Radio 4 the Ages!
