Thumbs up to Enid First Church of the Nazarene for putting its faith in action last Sunday.
Approximately 130 attendees headed to a neighborhood in east Enid to clean up debris from yards, mow eight lawns, clean out a window air conditioning unit and scrape, prime and paint a house.
The church started the Garfield Neighborhood Initiative almost four years ago, after the construction of Garfield Elementary School was announced.
More thumbs up for a local nonprofit speech and hearing center expanding services after hiring a new audiologist with skills not previously available in the region.
Audiologist Kim Tinius joined Hedges Regional Speech and Hearing in early April.
Tinius comes to Enid from a privately operated audiology and speech pathology clinic in Tulsa.
“In our clinic, I’m planning to bring in cochlear implants for patients when hearing aids are not enough,” Tinius said.
Thumbs up to some local women for making lemonade when life gave them lemons.
Lemonade Ladies is a brand new group designed to help middle-aged or older women through issues like depression and emotional trauma.
After fighting her own battle with depression, Shelley Stutchman said she saw a need for a support group for women ages 40 to 75. With the help of two friends, Lemonade Ladies was born.
The Lemonade Ladies said any women from age 40 to 75 are welcome to come to a meeting. The group meets at 6:30 p.m. on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month at 2017 Windmill Lane.
For more information about meetings, call Stutchman at (580) 603-1372 or send an email to lemonade email@example.com.

Last, but not least, thumbs up to country music star Reba McEntire for performing before a sold-out audience on the first anniversary of the downtown Enid Event Center.
This was the hottest ticket in town. Congrats on a successful show!
