HILLSBORO SENIOR CENTER

We will be playing Bingo Wednesday after the noon meal, and on Oct. 27 is our birthday dinner at noon. All of us at the center hope others will be able to join us soon at the senior center.

In addition, we would like to thank everyone who donated to our senior center.

We are grateful for the help and support.

Volunteers are always needed and for those who can spare some time, please call us for more information.

The center?s board members deserve a ?thank you? for all they do at our center.

It takes a lot to keep the center going, so please thank them for their help and support.

The November menus will be out soon.

We are back to collecting craft items for Marion Elementary School.

We are the people who save everything, and the school acknowledges this.
