HILLSBORO SENIOR CENTER

Chair massages are scheduled Wednesday, June 3. For more information, call us.

We also will play Bingo June 6 after the noon meal.

Australian Sky and Weather with Clyve Herbert and Jane ONeill will be here Monday, June 22, to show us pictures. It will be a great program.

This month?s jam session is June 11. Remember, it is always the second Thursday of the month.

Footcare is the third Tuesday of the month and Haris Zafar will be here on the third Wednesday of each month.

We have big news from North Central Flint Hills Area Agency regarding the price of meals.

Because of state budget cuts, the price of meals is being raised. The other alternative would be to start closing centers or suspending the meal program.

Consequently, for those 60 and older, the cost will be $3.50, and for those under age 60, the cost is $5.25. The prices went into effect June 1.

For those over age 60 who can?t afford to pay that much, please pay what you can.

Those age 59 and younger still have a great deal at $5.25.

Please don?t stop coming. We have great fellowship and great meals.

Come join us for a meal soon.

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 hope to see you soon.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

While everyone appreciates the rain we prayed so fervently for, I think I need some Vitamin D.

We have been advised by Area Agency on Aging in Manhattan that they also are running with a deficient budget that will grow to $85,000 by Sept. 30 if some corrections aren?t put in place.

Based on this information, and according agency personnel, it will be necessary to increase the voluntary contribution supporting friendship meals to $3.50 per meal for everyone age 60 and older, and who have completed the UPR assessment.

All contributions from people who are over 60 who have a current Uniform Program Registration, which is voluntary, anonymous, and what people can comfortably afford.

Those 60 and under or those who do not wish to complete the UPR assessment will pay the full cost for their meals. This price will increase to $5.25 from $5.

Menus for June are available at the senior center.

Stop by and pick one up, then stay awhile for friendship and a meal.

You can call your reservations in at 620-983-2226

If there?s no answer, leave a message. We will return your call if you have a question.

Don?t forget we are having a fundraiser from 5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, June 10.

The menu includes hamburgers or hot dogs and all the trimmings, plus we will feature a bluegrass band. It will be fun.

The McKinney girls will provide the entertainment. No reservations are needed, and the cost by donation.

Father’s Day is June 21, and we will have brunch at 9:30 a.m. June 19. More will be announced later.

Stop by 106 N. Walnut or call us at 620-983-2226 to make reservations for any of our regular midday meals.

Meals have a suggested donation price of $3.15 for those 60 and older and $5 for everyone else.
