It?s hard to leave home in this cold weather, but it?s worth coming to the senior center for a good, hot meal and good company.

Phyllis Soyez brought treats for her birthday Nov. 6. Commodities came in Nov. 12. A very efficient crew of Sue Clough, Jackie Hett and Vickie Kaempfe boxed everything for distribution.

Jerry Nelson was honored for his birthday Nov. 12. His sister, Robin, who volunteers here, surprised him with a cake she helped bake.

The first of the week was cold, but it feels like a heat wave now that we are back in the 40s. It?s refreshing when we get a reprieve from the chilly temperatures.

Hopefully everyone will be able to get out and put their Christmas decorations out during the warmth so that Peabody will be it?s usual beautiful self during the Christmas holidays that are so rapidly approaching.

We have set the date for the Peabody Tour of Lights for Wednesday, Dec. 10.

More details will follow, but we will start at 6:30 p.m. and then meet at the Senior Center for hot chocolate and cookies after touring the town.

This is always a fun and festive time that everyone enjoys.

The SCMC board meeting has been changed from Lincolnville to Marion this month.

It will be Friday, Nov. 21.

Our Thanksgiving brunch will be at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 26.

The breakfast consists of casserole with either blueberry coffee cake or cinnamon cake, and fruit. It is a nice way to start off the holiday weekend and be able to get an early start if you are traveling or having company. Be sure to call in your reservations early.

Peppernut sales are going great. We have two bag sizes this year so come by and make your selection. They are great for coffees or for gifts at Christmas and Thanksgiving time.

Think of including a bag for the hostess of your Thanksgiving dinner. 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.
