The center’s business meeting is Nov. 9 with board members in attendance. Nominations for board replacements will also be made and narrowed down to three people. The final vote is Nov. 16.

Two board members, Velma Hadley and Ray Matz, have completed their terms and six people were nominated to fill their positions. They include Ruby Hilt, Ann Marie Wiebe, Willie Ensz, Ron Warkentin, Izzie Klassen and Ann Driver.

We hope everyone can join us for lunch and come and meet the nominees.

We had a wonderful Halloween party at the Goessel Senior Center.

Among those attending were: Motorcycle Mama, Queen of England, Spiderman, Farmer Brown, Bobbette, A clown, Little Red Ridinghood and, yes, even Santa.

There was a lot of laughter, pictures and fellowship. It really warmed my heart to see so many participating.

Marion senior center

We’ve had an interesting period going from October to November, and a blast of cold air also.

We were glad to have Beulah Weigart coming in to eat since having surgery. Plus, Ivanlee Timm and Mary Ann came in to celebrate her birthday and their anniversary. Ivanlee is presently in St. Luke Living Center.

Fork Day was Oct. 27. People brought in their favorite fork and we learned the history. For example, clergy considered forks to be against God’s natural laws. Then we sang our traditional song.

Bob Peterson celebrated his 60th birthday with us on Oct. 28, reaching the milestone age to eat here for $2.75.

A mystery jigsaw puzzle, with missing pieces, is being assembled, and the story about it is being read each day.

We had a good Halloween with a lot of costumed people. In addition, placemats were made by Barbara Abbott with nut caps by Marjorie Dornbush and Cathy Clyde and nut cup candy provided by Wilma Gilmer. We sang pumpkin carols with Sue Clough and Shirley Bowers.

Ron and Connie Shipman provided musical entertainment Nov. 2. Ron plays the guitar and Connie plays the fiddle with both singing vocals.

Come join us Nov. 16 for Senior Center Day. Bennie Holtsclaw will perform. Another Teddy Bear is Nov. 14.

Everyone is encouraged to find their Mickey Mouse stuff for his birthday Nov. 18.

For more information on programs or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal or stop by the center, 309 S. Third St.
