Fox's Den: Family clinic growing

Step into my den, pull up a comfy chair and a cup of tea and let’s chat.


The Greenbrier Family Clinic with Drs. Bowman and Clifton are announcing extended hours of service to the community starting Dec. 2.  Instead of closing their practice at 5 p.m., they will now be open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. five days a week to accommodate those working people who get home late. They are also looking to add one more Nurse Practitioner to their staff. I have an inside scoop coming soon that I’m just bursting to tell you; but I must wait for the go-ahead. Stay tuned.

Glen and Barbara Schenk and Fran Swaffert hold a meeting every second Tuesday of the month for those who are struggling to care for an Alzheimer’s loved one. There is a growing need for this kind of support group as our population ages. They meet at 1 p.m. at the Church of the Nazarene on Highway 65. Just drop in.

The Hometown Holiday Week-end of shopping in Greenbrier was certainly a success. Yes, Christmas seems like it comes earlier and earlier every year; but try to avoid that Black Friday crush by shopping early in Greenbrier.  Stay close to home for a good variety and quality of products.

Be sure to enter your float, buggy, tractor, horse, clown or event in the Lions’ Christmas parade. Find the entry forms at the high school.

The planning for Thanksgiving has not been lost either. If you can offer help to Immanuel Baptist Church for their FREE community Thanksgiving meal Tuesday, Nov. 26, call 501-679-2612 and speak with Brother Tony. I’m sure they will welcome many serving hands and goods if you have time to volunteer.

The Greenbrier High School Choir will host “Holiday Soiree” Dec. 3 in the GHS Cafeteria. Holiday Pizzazz! will feature “Quarter” refreshments that will be available during their silent auction — all you need is 25 cents! Holiday Cheer performance will follow in the Fine Arts auditorium. Don’t miss this.

They are also planning a Madrigal Dinner Friday, Dec. 13 and Saturday, Dec. 14 with tickets on sale now. Tickets are $12/ adults and $6/ children. Call 501-679-1052 or visit First Service Bank.

The EAST kids at GHS are hoping the weather is good so they can launch a balloon on Friday Nov. 15 from the lot next to Westside Elementary School. The plan is to attach a camera to study the curvature of the earth and retrieve it by GPS.

‘Til next time, give me a call or drop me a line if you would like to chat……

Please send Greenbrier news, questions, comments, or suggestions to BJ Fox in The Fox’s Den at or or call 501-679-3690.
