HILLSBORO SENIOR CENTER

Footcare is Tuesday, July 21, and hearing aid checks with Haris Zafar begin at 11:15 a.m. July 15.

Also on Wednesday, Progres?sive Home Health is doing blood pressure home health checks from 10 a.m. until noon.

We are in need of volunteers because some people can?t help any longer.

The hours would be from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., and include helping over lunch and cleaning up. As a way to thank those who volunteer, their meal is free that day.

We also could use substitute drivers for the Meals on Wheels program. If interested, please call.

MARION SENIOR CENTER

We had a big day July 8 when 60 people came to hear Tim McVay, new medical doctor in Marion.

We had just packed boxes of commodities for extra people. It was a good day.

Aileen Hanschu brought cookies for her July 2 birthday.

Think about submitting the name of a quilter to be honored Oct. 15 at the annual Marion County Senior Citizens meeting.

Come pick up a form to do this.

The crew boxing up commodities July 8 included Sue Clough, Vickie Kaempfe and Connie Riffel. Helping outside to unload were Gene Winkler and Bill Kaempfe.

Come join us July 22. The program after lunch will be a musical presentation.

For more information or to make a reservation, call 620-382-2942, or stop by 309 S. Third St., Marion.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

We?ve had a couple of changes in the schedule that I want to relay to you.

Randolph Whitely’s (a medical doctor) schedule was such that he will be coming July 22. He always has such good information to share with us including handouts for future reference. He always welcomes topic suggestions for future meetings, so feel free to come down and share information.

Our business meeting is July 21. At this meeting the local board members share with us what is coming up for the Senior Center and also what was conveyed at the Senior Citizens of Marion County meeting.

This is a good meeting to attend to find out what is going on with Seniors here in Peabody, Marion County, and even the State of Kansas. Come and join us.

We will end July with our summer brunch July 31. This will be a very request meal of Biscuits with Sausage Gravy and a Blueberry Muffin and Fresh Fruit. What a delicious way to end July. Reservations are needed.

As always you may stop by 106 N. Walnut and pick up the monthly menu or call 620-983-2226 to make reservations for the meals you would like to have.

One suggestion after making a reservation is to stop by about 11:30 a.m. and visit with your friends and neighbors for a bit before eating in the dining room together.

If not interested in the dining room now and then, meals can be delivered to your home by our driving staff, or you can come in at either 10:45 a.m. or noon and pick up your meal.

Our intent is to provide you the opportunity to have a good meal each week day.

Our meals are a suggested donation of $3.50 for those 60 and above, and only $5.25 for all others. Please make plans to join us for our midday meal. We are sure you will enjoy it.
