  • Have you met ... Helen Mumphrey

    Music has been a part of Helen Mumphrey’s life since she began “piddling around on the piano” at age 3.

    At age 9, she began taking piano lessons with Mrs. Dewey Akers.

    “At that time, it was 75 cents a half hour,” Mumphrey recalls. “It was still hard to come up with it, but my mother did. She made sure I got that training.”

    Though she learned to read music, she initially learned to play the songs she was taught by memorizing the movements of Mrs. Akers’ hands when she introduced each piece of music.

  • Oysters make a tasty chowder, much like clams

    When we had our Ghent Woman’s Club meeting and Christmas get-together in early December, we were asked to tell what some of our Christmas memories were and what we would be doing for Christmas. Since our theme was “Christmas Memories,”  it was a wonderful evening of reminiscing for all of us. We discussed our family’s holiday meal traditions, as well.  We had such a good time.
