Senior scribbles, Jan. 14, 2015


We will play Bingo after the noon meal Jan. 14, and Jan. 16 is Show ?n Tell.

For those wanting to participate in Show ?n Tell, bring anything to share.

We will be closed on Monday, Jan. 19, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Footcare is Jan. 20. Haris Zafar will be here Jan. 21 to provide hearing aid checks.

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. We have great fellowship and a lot of fun.

We are also looking for program ideas. Anyone who has a program is asked to let us know. The day of the program, the presenters meal is free.

The cost for a meal is $3.15 for those age 60 and older, and those 59 and under, the cost is $5.

We want to thank everyone for supporting our center.

We also have some big expenses coming up to include putting a return air vent in now.

We also need to replace another air conditioner and heating unit this year.

Anyone who would like to donate would be helping so much and everyone who uses the facility would be grateful.

We are a not-for-profit making all contributions tax deductible.

Last year we replaced one unit, but we have another unit needing to be switched out.

For more information or to volunteer, call 620-947-2304 or stop by the senior center, 212 N. Main St. The center is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

I?ve spent this week with very little voice or a squeaky one. Or as one caller later said, I sounded ?pitiful.?

We welcomed the coffee/lunch bunch back Jan. 6.

There were eight women who get together often as present or former Marion residents and classmates.

Barb Smith has presented the Marion Memories book set to us. They are great to look at.
