Senior Scribble (April 25, 2018)

HILLSBORO senior center

We are working on getting the May menus out. Sorry for being a little later this month, but thank you for your understanding.

This week we have bingo on Wednesday, April 25 with Bluestem Pace. We have Show & Tell Friday April 27. Our birthday dinner is at noon Monday April 30.

We hope you can join us soon for a meal at the center. Also as school is getting out, would anyone 14 years or older like to volunteer at the center this summer? Call for more information at 620-947-2304.

We also need sub drivers for our Meals on Wheels, too. Call for more info for that, too. We can get you on the same day or days of the week each month so you know what day you help. We do train you.

Also if anyone has a program they would like to present at our center, let us know. We look forward to seeing you at the center. We do love music or people that have been on a trip or have stories to tell. We enjoy all programs so let us know if you like to share with us.

We would like to thank all are wonderful volunteers and Meals on Wheels drivers for all you do to help at the center. We are greatful for your beautiful smiles and hard work.

A reminder that anyone any age can come eat at the center. The suggested donation is 60 and over $3.50 and 59 and under $5.25. It’s a great price for a great hot meal. For more information, call 620-947-2304 or stop by 212 N. Main St.

Senior Center Day was April 18. The business meeting was conducted by Sue Clough, president of Marion senior citizens. We discussed forms of fund­raising.

It was also Volunteer Recognition Day with the theme, “Volunteers are the heart of our team.” These include our delivery drivers, dining room help, those who check in daily diners, our pianists and other volunteers who make the senior center work. We also sang a song written for the day, led by Sue Clough and accompanied by Keith Allison.

Miller is also helping to plan a time when we will start a caregivers meeting for those who are caring for a loved one. We will need your help in deciding what would be a good time to meet and if it is needed once a month or more often.They have set up some of these meetings elsewhere and they are more than willing to help you and give you ideas with no cost to you. Everyone is welcome.

Peabody Senior Center will hand out commodities from noon to 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 25. Be sure to come in and get them as they are first come, first serve.

We will serve two meals on Thursday, April 25. The evening meal is a make-up meal because of closing for bad weather in February. Don’t want to miss this one. Menus are listed in the menu list below. Don’t miss this one.

We will welcome two therapists, Matthew and Alex, from St. Luke Hospital Friday, April 27, as they will share their knowledge of what you can expect from therapy. They are going to demonstrate how they do dry shots to help relieve our pain (I know as I have had to have therapy the last few weeks and this was done to me. It really helped.)

May menus are ready to be picked up. Come have a cup of coffee with us. You really make our day when you stop in and visit a spell.

Where else can you get a good nutritious meal for $3.50 for age 60-plus and $5.25 for those age 59 and under.
