Senior scribbles, June 24, 2015


This week Bingo is one of the activities planned after noon meal Wednesday, June 24, at the center.

In addition, this month?s birthday dinner is Monday, June 29.

The center is also needing donations to help get a new freezer.

The freezer we did have is no longer working and North Central Flint Hills Area Agency will cover half the cost to replace it.

We are looking into the price for a new freezer, but the center?s checking account is very low, which is why we are asking for help.

Part of the problem is we have had too many things that needed fixing recently, and our utility bill also is high.

We would be grateful for any donation amount and we can give a receipt, too. It just takes a lot of money to keep our center going.

The money for meals goes to our food program through NCFHAA.

The senior center doesn?t get any of that money, and that?s why your donations are so important in keeping the center open.

We hope you can help with whatever you can afford to give.

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.

We have great fellowship. Hope to see you soon.

June 17 was Senior Center Day. President Sue Clough conducted the business meeting. Anita Hancock played the piano while we ate. Her selections were ?golden oldies? that we all recognized.

Come join us on July 1. Grace Hett will provide a selection of piano music.

With the 21st of June, the first day of summer, also came the heat it seems, but I will not complain because I know the farmers need into their fields. As I drive around the countryside the beautiful shades of green and the “amber waves of grain” are such a beautiful site that I dare not complain about either the rain nor the heat. All is according to God’s plan and I can only stand back and appreciate the beauty of it all.

The July menus are out so come by 106 N. Walnut and pick up a copy. Review it and call 983-2226 and make your reservations for the days you would like to eat with us.

We did have a slight increase in the price. Seniors, those 60 and above, are now a suggested donation of $3.50, and all other persons are now $5.25. Either way is a bargain.

We will be closed on Friday, July 3, for July 4th Celebrations. Hope you have a wonderful long weekend and enjoy all the festivities that Peabody has planned. We are well-known for our beautiful fireworks and the city always has many other events scheduled. So come out and enjoy!

The July birthday dinner will be on Wednesday, July 8. Come enjoy fried chicken with all the trimmings and celebrate your July birthday or the birthdays of those that do have July birthdays.

This is always a wonderful meal with lots of good fellowship. Make your reservations early.

There will be an indoor picnic at the Senior Center on Friday, July 10. This is the best…great picnic food with no flies, ants, or heat! This is a win/win anyway you look at it.

Our local board meeting is Monday, July 13, at 9:30 a.m., the SCMC Meeting is Friday, July 17, and the business meeting will be Tuesday, July 21. These are good meetings to attend because they keep you breast of what is going on in the senior community.

Dinner with the Doctor features physician Randolph Whitely after the noon day meal Wednesday, July 15. Please join us.

Happy Summertime!
