SYAH ladies are princesses of masked frivolity

It’s the season for merriment, even when parading around six feet apart and bejeweled in a face-covering mask. The ladies of Still Young at Heart (SYAH) didn’t want to sit at home watching I Love Lucy reruns. Nope, they wanted fun, even with restrictions. 

On a delightful afternoon in December, the ladies of SYAH met at the Tate House for a Sip and Shop with glasses of bubbly to make spirits bright. Since sipping was an arduous process, shopping was the main entertainment. The Tate House is known for whimsy and glamour and their Christmas Gift Shop is a feast for the eyes, but maybe a famine for the pocketbook. 

The ladies had a wonderful time calling to each other from many feet away. It was good to see each other’s eyes again and hear familiar voices. 

Charity was on their minds too. The group collected and donated funds to support kids in Pickens County through the Children’s Weekend Snack Program. Funds are used to buy snacks for kids to enjoy over the weekend. Some kids only get nutritious meals during the school week but go hungry on the weekends. This program helps get good, healthy snacks to kids when school is out. You can bet the kids love it!

The word is out SYAH has big plans for a socially distanced play field event in early spring. Won’t that be something to look forward to? It will be time to trade heavy winter masks for gay gingham coverings. Oh, what a relief it is!

If you’re not yet a member of this fun-loving, very casual group, contact Sherry Evans at and she’ll welcome you with her masked smile.
