Senior scribbles, May 13, 2015


Our next jam session is May 14, and birthday dinner is planned May 18, because we are closed for Memorial Day on May 25.

Footcare is May 19. Please call for an appointment.

Haris Zafar is here May 20 for hearing aid checks.

We again want to thank everyone for donating money to our center to help with the air conditioning and heating unit needed.

Our monthly expenses total about $2,000 for gas, cable and utilities.

It takes a lot to run the center, and that?s why fundraising events are so important.

Volunteers are still wanted so if you can help, please let us know.

In addition, we are looking for volunteers to come and clean chairs around the tables. If interested, please let us know.

I also wanted to thank everyone for their prayers. My biopsy is May 19 and I hope to have the results.

Come join us for a meal soon. The suggested cost for people 60 and older is $3.15, and for those 59 and younger, $5.

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.

We had our carpet cleaned at the center and it is much nicer. It?s great when things are cleaned and refreshed.

Thanks to all the people who helped us clear out the furniture and then came back to replace it the next morning.

If anyone happened to see a coatrack in front of the senior center and thought it was being disposed of for clean up week, we would love to have it back.

We had placed a few items in front of the center while the carpet was cleaned and the coatrack disappeared.

We also want to thank the people who painted the bench in front of the center, the trash can, and the flowers planted in the planter.

It makes our place and Main Street look great.

Commodities will be distributed from 12:30-2 p.m. Wednesday, May 13, here at the center.
