MARION SENIOR CENTER

We ended the month of December with treats brought by Shirley Bowers and New Year’s Eve decorations and cake provided by Becky Hogue and Janie Westerman. We put out a jigsaw puzzle of one thousand pieces, the first one we have worked on for several months. Now we’re ready for the year 2020 as we provide Meals on Wheels and welcome those who come in to eat lunch every day. Please note that Elvis will be here to perform at 7 p.m. on Jan. 31.

Grief share is from 3-4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 14. Don’t forget that we will be closed on Jan. 20. for the Martin Luther King Holiday. There will be no Meals on Wheels delivered. Gayla Ratzlaff will be here from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Jan. 29 for LIEAP and if you bring your tax information, she will take them with her and then let you know when they are finished. Call us at the Center (620-983-2226) and set up a time that will be good for you, it takes her about 15 min. per person, We can always use volunteers in the kitchen. Give us a call if you can spare a couple of hours. It’s more fun when there are two working in the kitchen. Stop by and have a cup of coffee on us, we look forward to seeing you.
