Senior Scribbles (Sept. 19, 2012)


hillsboro senior center

We want to thank everyone for making Saturday’s fund-raising event such a success and to those who volunteered to help.

All proceeds from the meal will support the center. The Schniggle-Fritz Band played some wonderful music.

Haris Zafar will be here at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, for hearing aid checks. Also on Sept. 19, the center’s business meeting, with its board members, will be during lunch. We are grateful to our board for all the hard work they do to keep the center operating. Everyone is welcome.

Esther Funk entertained us last Wednesday and Friday on the piano. She did a nice job. If anyone has an idea for a program, let us know.

October menus are now available.

The center needs Meals on Wheels drivers and volunteers. We have one driver who is ill. Volunteers are also wanted to help set tables and clean up after lunch. Meals are free and drivers get their mileage paid from the North Central Area Agency on Aging.

For more information on volunteering or center activities, call 620-947-2304. The deadline to make reservations for lunch is 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

Peabody senior center

What a wonderful transition into fall we have been experiencing. The warm days, cool nights and the rains of last week have been so pleasant. Hope all of you are enjoying the changes as much as we have at the Peabody Senior Center.

Mark your calenders because beginning Oct. 8 and continuing through Nov. 15 is the center’s peppernut baking season.

We will be baking every Monday and Thursday after lunch and when the kitchen people have finished their clean-up duties.

Making peppernuts is our biggest fundraiser of the year and, we have a lot of fun doing the work. We always need both men and women for the different tasks so if you can, please come give us a hand.

We will have a booth at the Peabody City Park Celebration, sponsored by the Peabody Historical Society.

We will have a drawing for a Kindle e-reader at the end of the festivities Sept. 29.

The e-reader is wonderful to have for people who enjoy reading. They can hold up to 1,500 books and games. For those who aren’t sure they would enjoy one, children or grandchildren would be delighted to receive one.

Tickets are on sale at the senior center or can be purchased Sept. 29 at the center’s booth.

Come and join us for a noon day meal at 11:45 a.m. each weekday.

We have delicious, balanced meals each day at a suggested donation of $2.75 for those 60 and over and $4.50 for those who 59 and under.

To make a meal reservation, volunteer or to ask a question, call 620-983-2226.

Have a great week.

Marion senior center

What a day we had Sept. 6 when the truck from the Kansas Food Bank in Wichita pulled into our parking lot.

In pouring rain and background lightning, we gave away everything in 40 minutes.

It’s not often we get birthday treats for a 96th birthday, but we did Sept. 10 for Irene Richmond. She eats with us every day.

We observed Patriot Day by pledging allegiance to the flag and singing the national anthem on Sept. 11.

Pastor Jeff Lee of the Aulne United Methodist Church talked about his life experiences and background. The audience was quite attentive.

Come join us Sept. 26 when pastor Jeremy Lange of the Marion Presbyterian Church will talk about the mission trip to Haiti his church group participated in.

For more information on renting the building, 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.
