Senior scribbles, August 26, 2015


September menus are now available and everyone is encouraged to stop by and pick one up.

We will play Bingo Wednesday, Aug. 26, after the noon meal.

In addition, we are having a birthday dinner Aug. 31, and Wednesday, Sept. 2, is chair massages.

Another possible event to mark down on the calendar is footcare Sept. 15. If interested, call for an appointment time.

Haris Zafar, who does hearing checks, will be here at 11:15 a.m. Sept. 16.

We hope those who haven?t tried lunch at the center will consider coming in for a meal soon.

Volunteers are needed, along with Meals on Wheels drivers.

If interested, call the center for more information. Anyone who works will get their meal free the day they help.

We want to thank everyone for supporting their senior center. Any donations go towards keeping the facility going.

It takes a lot to run the center on the day-to-day basis.

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

We have great fellowship. Hope to see you soon.
