Sight Seekers come together during the holidays

Sight Seekers, a community support group for the visually impaired in Lebanon, hosted a special Christmas party for its members Thursday.

The group, founded several years ago by Christine Beasley and her husband, James, meets on the second Thursday of each month March-December at Market Street Church of Christ.

At regular meetings, the members of Sight Seekers participate in a variety of activities, including arts and crafts. At a recent meeting, they took a trip on the Music City Star. For Christmas, they decorated wreaths.

“This group is Miss Beasley’s heart, and it shows,” said Janice Waters, who is Beasley’s niece and now helps coordinate the group.

“She is determined. She will do everything in her power. She is a God-fearing lady, and God has really and truly blessed her, and he has blessed us through her.”

The Christmas dinner included a spread of finger foods. Group members also had activities and gifts.

Volunteers from the community, particularly those who are related to members of the group, help the program work each month. Volunteers are already planning some activities for 2017. The group will next meet March 2017.

“We work together and do whatever they need us to do,” Waters said.
