Remember a children’s book called, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day?” That’s what July 12 was for us. None of our regular volunteers were available, so we had to find substitutes. Then some had to leave early. We want no more days like that.

The winner of the penny jar contest was Larry Blosser. He guessed $21.91 and the actual amount in the jar was $21.90.

Peabody senior center

Our hamburger cookout was a huge success and I wanted to take this opportunity to thank each of you who came out and supported us.

In this heat we were a little leary about having the event, but we ended up serving 74 people.

We sincerely appreciate your support. I believe the only thing “over-cooked” were Bill and Alan working the grill.

The Wii bowling tournament that was canceled on Monday has been rescheduled for July 27. Perhaps more will be available on that day.

We serve meals Monday through Friday at 11:45 a.m. For those wanting to attend, please call the day before you plan to eat so the cook is aware of how much food to prepare.
