WP Community Living set to host appreciation event

June 5, 2014


Zane Parker II, local volunteer and devotional leader, will be hosting a Friends and Family Appreciation Day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday at West Point Community Living Center on North Eshman Avenue.
The event is to give friends and family of past and present WPCLC residents an opportunity to fellowship together. Hamburgers and hot dogs will be provided, along with singing.
Parker said he has been visiting and providing ministry and Bible study at WPCLC for 11 years.
“I’ve met a lot of residents’ friends and family over 11 years,” Parker said. “In the last three or four years, I’ve noticed friends and family visit less.”
He said the appreciation day is a way to thank families for visiting their loved ones at WPCLC, and encourage them to visit more in the future.
Parker said he comes to WPCLC every Friday and offers a devotional to the residents. When he moved to West Point 11 years ago, he started regularly visiting WPCLC, and one of the residents asked if he would come and do a Bible study.
“We did it that first Friday, and they asked me if I’d start coming back on a regular basis,” he said. “Now we do it every Friday.”
Parker works as a research lab technician at Mississippi State University, and said his employers allow him to work four 10-hour days so he can have Fridays off to come to WPCLC.
