HILLSBORO SENIOR CENTER

We want to thank everyone who attended the Hills?boro Farmers Market Thursday and had a meal. We served about 125 people even with the rain, and we are blessed to have the support for our Senior Center. We have a lot of expenses and we are grateful for donations. It was a big help.

To keep our center open, donations are important. Anybody who would like to contribute can receive a receipt for tax purposes. Memorials in the center?s name may also be made, if that is a person?s wish.

Join us soon for a meal and stay for one of the programs, too.

Volunteers are needed for the Meals on Wheels delivery program. If interested, please call.

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

Hope to see you soon.

?Brenda Moss, director

MARION SENIOR CENTER

Those of us involved in the workings of the senior center know that strange things go on here. Earlier this month, Sue Clough, who often closes up, remarked about a beeping noise coming from a storage closet.

One day when she and Gayla Ratzlaff were here they heard the beeping. An old fire alarm on a shelf. They could not turn it off, smother it or crush it. They called the police who have answered other odd calls from here. Mystery solved. No more beeps.

We thank Harlow Warneke for grilling burgers June 5 for us.

Joan Meyer shared the annual letter she gets from Belgium thanking Ameri?can troops for the D-Day victory.
