Alan's farewell lunch with the Ladies of the Club (& George)-the women at the Senior Center who loved Alan as much as he loved them.
The ladies of the Red Bird Senior Center just loved Alan. The love affair began when Alan was tasked to repair the Center’s roof damaged by a fallen tree. Fixing the roof stretched into fixing storage space, building shelves, doing normal repairs, & more. His energy & friendly nature worked its magic on the ladies—no small feat for winning over strong mountain women. They invited him to eat with them & stay & visit as long & often as possible. They laughed a lot together and, yes, Alan fell in love with them too.
