Volunteers are still needed from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. If interested call.

AGAPE senior center

Another week has come and gone here at AGAPE Senior Center. However, it was a busy one. I attended the one committee meeting in Hillsboro Nov. 8, and I would like to thank Hillsboro for its hospitality.

I got a lot of new ideas from surrounding senior center managers.

“Thank you ladies (for your help).”

We also had a good turnout for flu shots despite the cold, wet weather. Jenny Shipman was here Tuesday from the Alzheimers Assoc. in Wichita.

We received information about the organization, and anyone can pick up a pamphlet at the center if you did not get to attend.

Gayla Ratzlaff, director of the Marion County Agency on Aging, wrapped up Medicare Part D on Nov. 10. For those who missed out, they can call her office to schedule an appointment.

This week will be another busy one. We will be hosting the pool tournament Nov. 17 and would like to say, “welcome to Inman.”

Also Maryann McFadden will be here for foot health care from 9:30 a.m. to noon, also Nov. 17.

We will then be having our Thanksgiving dinner. For those attending feel free to bring a small dish of family favorites to share.

We are planning on 51 to 60 people, and I am sure our volunteers that day would welcome any extra help in the kitchen.

I would like to thank all of those who have heard my pleas for help in getting our numbers and have responded. It shows just how much everyone cares about our center and seniors.

I would also like to put out another plea. We need more volunteers to help in the serving at our center. If you have time for just a few hours a month it would be greatly appreciated.

Please remember to call before noon the business day before dining with us. To make a meal reservation, call 620-367-2275 or stop by 101 Wheat St., Goessel.

We enjoyed four cast members from the Marion High School musical, “Cinderella,” who were here Nov. 9.

The evil stepsisters were played by two husky males and they were hilarious.

Remember to wear your Mickey Mouse sweatshirt, watch or whatever on his birthday Nov. 18.

Come join us for our Thanksgiving meal Nov. 23. We will also be having some Thanksgiving programming too.
