We want to thank everyone who came out to eat Saturday for our German meal. We don’t know how many attended yet, but we had a good time.

A big thank you goes to our volunteers who helped at the meal and to the board members for their hard work, too.

FROM THE NEW MANAGER…

AGAPE Senior Center would like to extend a huge “thanks” to Peabody’s cook and staff for the delicious meals they have been providing.

Peabody senior center

After a very active week, we are planning to slow the pace somewhat. Time enough to catch our breath because the very busy fall season is upon us.

We continue to cook meals for the AGAPE Center in Goessel so our kitchen is still in constant need of volunteers.

We surely appreciate those of you who are so faithful to help, but know there are many more who could share in the blessing of volunteering.

We are always anxious to see new people coming into our center for our meals, but also to volunteer their time to help others.

If you feel you could spare a couple hours a week, please stop by and let us know when.

We will be starting to bake peppernuts on Oct. 10 right after lunch and continue every Monday and Thursday afternoon until Nov. 17.

This is our biggest fundraiser of the year and we always appreciate all the people in the community that come out to help. We have a good time while we are baking.

Please remember to reserve your meal the day before you plan to eat by calling 620-983-2226. With the extra meals Kim is preparing each day an accurate count as early as possible is most appreciated.

Reservations are due the day before you plan on eating by calling 620-983-2226 and leaving a message on our recorder so we will be sure and include you for the meal. Menus are available at the center, 106 Walnut.
