Marion senior center

We?ve had the beginnings of garden goodies coming in. One day when cucumbers arrived one of the women asked if they were ?breakfast? cucumbers.

This created a lot of interest in the unusual vegetable. Later, we learned that the word was ?burp-less? instead of ?breakfast.?

Rowena Olsen celebrated her birthday with us July 29, providing ice cream cups.

Frankie Turner brought in two framed paintings she had done to display on our easels.
