Senior scribbles, November 12, 2014


We will play bingo Nov. 12, after the noon meal.

For those who enjoy music, play an instrument and want a good meal, then plan on attending the jam session Nov 13.

We always have a good time.

Show ?n Tell is Nov. 14 and those interested can bring something to share.

Footcare is Nov. 18 and people are asked to call for an appointment time.

Haris Zafar also will be here at 11:15 a.m. Nov. 19 for hearing aid checks. Appointments are not needed, and he is here the third Wednesday of the month.

The center is having its Thanksgiving dinner at noon Nov. 21.

For those wanting to reserve a spot, please call by Nov. 17 to sign up because we can only take so many people.

Our signup sheet is available at the center and it is filling up fast.

We can only seat so many in our dinning room and we apologize, in advance, for any inconvenience this causes.

We hope you will join us soon at the senior center.

Volunteers are needed to help from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. in the kitchen. Anyone who volunteers will get a meal free the day they work.

Anyone who can spare a day or two each month is encouraged to let us know.

Volunteering is a great way to meet people.

For more information, call 620-947-2304 or stop by the senior center, 212 N. Main St.

We observed Halloween with a quiz about Halloween candy, and a joke about the broom groom and the broom bride.

I was a witch with a flowing cape and ghastly wig.

Seems like school just started, and here we are on the countdown to Thanksgiving.

We are busy at the center making and selling peppernuts for the holiday season.

The time for baking is drawing to a close with our last day to bake Thursday, Nov. 13, but there is still plenty of time to come down and buy several bags for your own enjoyment or holiday gifts.

We are offering two sizes this year?a large bag for $8 and a small bag for $5.

Although we have ample stock currently, don’t wait until we are sold out.

There will be an evening meal of chili and cinnamon roll cake on Nov. 12, served from 5 to 6:30 p.m. This will be a make up meal for the Friday after Thanksgiving when we are closed. No one needs to come at an exact time, but people will need to have a reservation so the cook will have an ample supply of chili.

Our local board meeting will be on Nov. 17, and everyone is welcome to attend. Input is always appreciated.

The Marion County Senior board meeting will be at Lincolnville Friday, Nov. 21.

Reservations can either be made through the Marion Area Agency office or here in Peabody.

Our other important meeting will be on Nov. 25 when we have our local business meeting and share our plans and ideas with all the participants of the senior center.

Brunch is usually held the day before holidays when we are closed, and we will have one at 9:30 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 26 before Thanksgiving.

We will feature a breakfast casserole with either blueberry casserole or cinnamon cake and fruit.

Please mark your calendar and give us a call to make your reservation early at 98-2226.

Thanks to everyone for the support given to the center throughout the year.

We have many wonderful people who eat with us and volunteer with us and support us financially.

We really appreciate it and can’t say, ?thank you? often enough. Everyone is amazing and we are thankful?but especially at this Thanksgiving season.

Please come by 106 N. Walnut or call us at 620-983-2226. We look forward to seeing you.

For seniors, the cost of a meal is suggested at $3.15 or $5 for those under 65.
