HILLSBORO SENIOR CENTER

We hope everyone has a happy New Year, and will take time to come and join us for a meal soon.

Hat Day is Friday, Jan. 2, and any hat will work.

Scott Schultz with SS Concrete Solutions will talk about his business Jan. 6.

Volunteers are still needed so please let us know if you can help from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.

Anyone who helps will get their meal free that day.

For those who might have a program they want to share, let us know, and we can set up a day. Presenters get their meal free.

We enjoy music, trips, crafts, quilting and other adventures.

The coffee is always ready.

As always, we are so grateful for those who support our senior center.

For more information or to volunteer, call 620-947-2304 or stop by the senior center, 212 N. Main St.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

Christmas is the biggest birthday party of the year, and it?s here.

Be sure to have a wonderful Christmas with family and friends, but remember all the while the real reason for the season.

Thanks go to each one of you for the support you have given the Peabody Senior Center this past year?either by volunteering, monetary gifts, produce gifts during gardening season, giving programs to keep us abreast of interesting facts or just coming down and sharing a meal with us.

It takes everyone doing something to keep us up and going.

Again, we thank you for helping us to remain open and active.

This is a short week for us since we will be closed Thursday and Friday, but we will reopen Monday.

Don?t forget to make your reservation for New Year?s Eve day when we will have pizza for lunch and then musical entertainment by Bob and the Boys.

This is always a very exciting lunch and program for us.

We will be closed New Year?s day, and then we will have the January Birthday dinner Wednesday, Jan. 7.

Make plans to join us a few extra times now that all the hustle and bustle of the holidays is past. Certainly our numbers need a big boost at the beginning of this new year.

Stop by the Peabody Senior Center at 106 N. Walnut to pick up January menus.

You may come by or call 983-2226 to reserve your meals.

The meals are delicious and reasonably priced at $3.15 for those 60 and older and $5 for everyone else.

There are not many places you can get a good, nutritious meal for those prices. Give us a try.

We look forward to seeing you.
