HILLSBORO senior center

This week we will have our jam session Thursday July 12 after the noon meal. Then on Tuesday July 17 we will have our board business meeting after the noon meal.

We are also looking for program ideas so if anyone has one, please let us know. We also need volunteers to help over lunch and also with Meals on Wheels. Call for more information at 620-947-2304.

We also want to thank everyone who has been donating to our center. We thank you so much. We still need donation as we only run off of donations and it takes a lot to keep our center going with payments for our utility bills and our insurances. Our center pays our dishwasher too so all that adds up. So we are greatful for everything we receive.

We also want to thank our board members for all your help and support to keep our center going strong and all our wonderful volunteers who help us too. We are blessed with having them at the center. We look forward to having you join us at the center soon.
