COVID-19 Vaccine Registration for Cottagers

Good Samaritan Home would like to extend a helping hand to any cottagers wanting to register for future COVID-19 vaccination dates in Quincy. As vaccination appointments become available, please call Kayla Hoerr, Director of Social Services, at 217-223-8717 ext 4205 to schedule an appointment for registration assistance. The Adams County Health Department asks that a Driver’s License, showing proof of age and residence, be available.

Valentine’s Day Photos

Good Samaritan Home will be putting together a Valentine’s Day video of photos sent in from our friends and families! We are asking you for your help in showing love to our residents by taking a photo of you or your family holding up a hand heart. You can then send the photo to our Facebook page (Good Samaritan Home of Quincy) or e-mail it to contact@gshq.org on or before Wednesday, February 10th. A video of all the photos will be created and posted to our Facebook page on Valentine’s Day!

Laugh of the Week
A man is late for an important meeting, but he can’t find a place to park. In desperation, he begins to pray. “Please Lord, if you help me find a parking stall right now, I promise to go to church every Sunday and never drink again!” A moment later, he sees a beautiful empty spot right next to the entrance. “Never mind. Found one!”

Weekly Inspiration

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn’t do than by the ones you did do, so throw off the bowlines, sail away from safe harbor, catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore, Dream, Discover.” – Mark Twain

Scripture & Prayer Request

Psalm 40:1-3
I waited patiently for God to help me; then He listened and heard my cry.  He lifted me out of the pit of despair, out from the bog and the mire, and set my feet on a hard, firm path, and steadied me as I walked along.  He has given me a new song to sing, of praises to our God.
