Senior scribbles, Jan. 21, 2015


With the recent closing of Heartland Foods, we want to remind to everyone that we have great meals at a great price, too.

The center is open to anyone at any age. All we need to know is how many, with reservations due by 9 a.m. the day of lunch. Meals can also be picked up, too.

Haris Zafar will be here at 11:15 a.m. Jan. 21 to provide hearing aid checks.

Gayla Ratzlaff, coordinator at the Marion County Department on Aging, will also be here Jan. 21 to talk about her Boston trip.

Our birthday party is Monday, Jan. 26.

We want to thank Morris and Joan Hope for donating a flatscreen television at our senior center.

Because of their generosity, everyone can see the television when watching sports or other programs. We are even thinking about starting a movie day.

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 planning some fundraising events, so watch for details. With so many expenses coming up, we hope people will support the center by having lunch with us or making a donation.

We are always looking for program ideas. Anyone who has a program is asked to let us know. The day of the program, the presenter?s 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.

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.

Thank you very much for supporting the center.
