HILLSBORO SENIOR CENTER

Tickets are still available from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday, May 2, for any ladies interested in attending a tea party and fashion show at the center.

For those planning to attend, we encourage them to wear their tea party hats, too. Mark your calendars for this one because tickets are going fast.

Activities this week include Bingo after lunch on Wednesday, April 22, and Arbor Day is Friday, April 24.

Our birthday dinner is April 27.

For those unaware, we need another air-conditioning/heating unit replaced.

If anyone would like to donate to help cover the cost of this replacement unit, please let us know.

Anyone who donates toward the purchase of this unit will get a receipt.

We?ve had a lot of large expenditures, causing the center to be low on funds.

Any help will be appreciated.

A lot of people support our center and we are grateful to them.

Thanks should also go to our board members for the hard work they do in keeping the center going.

We are still needing volunteers to help during and after lunch. Anyone who can help will get their meal free that day.

Come join us for a meal soon. The suggested cost for people 60 and older is $3.15, and for those 59 and younger, $5.

For more information or to volunteer, stop by 212 N. Main St. or call 620-947-2304 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

We hope to see you soon.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

April showers are sure to bring May flowers.

The rains we have received are a blessing, and especially because we haven?t had any storms associated with them.

We have been having larger numbers of people eating with us this month and we are so appreciative.

Perhaps the nicer weather is partially accountable for the increase but whatever it is we are grateful. Sherri Wilson of Florence is cooking for us and she?s doing a wonderful job. Come by and have a meal with us you will enjoy it.

The Volunteer Appreciation dinner was last Tuesday and we hope you came down, but if you didn’t make it, we want you to know how very much we do appreciate the help that we receive from our friends and neighbors.

We really can’t stress enough that we couldn’t do it without each and every one of our volunteers. Again, a big thank you.

Our May menus are available at the Center at 106 N. Walnut. Have a cup of coffee with us and pick up your copy.

Don?t forget we are celebrating Cinco de Mayo May 5 at the center. Dress in your favorite Mexican apparel and enjoy lively fun and Mexican food.

We may even find time for a Mexican hat dance or a siesta.

Our meals on only a suggested donation of $3.15 for seniors 60 and older and all others just pay $5.

For more information or to make a reservation, call 620-983-2226 or come by 106 N Walnut to pay us a visit.
