Senior scribbles, September 2, 2015


August is over and September is here with cooler temperatures not far behind.

Chair massages are planned for Wednesday, and bingo will be after lunch.

Barb Smith will talk about Bee Wise Thursday, Sept. 3, and Amanda Sheesley with Hatfield Mobility is here Friday, Sept. 4.

We hope others will join us for a meal soon.

The center is closed on Labor Day, Sept. 7.

Haris Zafar will be here at 11:15 a.m. Sept. 16 for hearing aid checks.

During the Arts & Crafts Fair, the center starting at 10:45 a.m. plans to serve verenika, cherry moos and Hillsboro sausage.

The event is a fundraiser for the senior center with all proceeds going toward needed improvements.

We want to thank everyone for supporting their senior center. Any donations go towards keeping the facility going.

It takes a lot to run the center on a day-to-day basis.
