At Tutor’s Biscuit World restaurant last Sun. afternoon, Feb. 4, Eleanor Nicholas, the organist and piano player at many local church functions, especially at her own Glenville Baptist Church, was feted at a special Birthday Party by her many friends. In fact, her table was occupied by 15 other well-wishers, who gave her a rousing rendition of “Happy Birthday,” followed by another one sung by the restaurant’s staff. The kindly lady is always willing to help others who might need her encouragement or assistance. She is the retired from the college and has many outside interests, several of them musical. Her son, Chip, is also musically talented, being a regular performer at the Jobs Temple Homecoming each August, where his late father, “Preacher Bob,” used to bring the message for about two decades.
In the main, you can find Eleanor all around town, particularly at church gatherings where she’s asked to perform. Because she gives her time and talents so graciously to help others, she richly deserves our “Folks Who Shine” designation for this week. DHC, Sr., Publisher-Editor
