Senior Scribbles (1-17-18)

HILLSBORO senior center

We hope everyone is staying warm on these colder January days.

Our sing-along is Thurs­day, Jan. 18. Additionally, the center plans to host the Marion County Senior Cen­ter board meeting Friday, Jan. 19.

The center continues to need volunteers. If anybody is interested in volunteering, please call the center.

Tickets for a motorcycle are still being sold with the center’s goal at selling 300 tickets. This is for a good cause and all proceeds are for the senior center.

We welcome anyone at any age to join us for lunch. Our meals are $3.50 for age 60-plus and $5.25 for age 59 and under.

We look forward to seeing new people at the center, and for those already attending meals and activities, thank you very much.

For more information or to find out about you can volunteer, call 620-947-2304 or stop by 212 N. Main St., Hillsboro.

Marion senior center

Just a reminder to watch for weather changes on television be­cause if the area schools close, so will the senior center.

Dawn Miller of Angels Care Home Health spoke to us Jan. 4 about blood pressure.

Roger Bitner brought treats for his birthday on Jan. 5. That same evening, an enthusiastic crowd welcomed Elvis impersonator Marc Baker of Wichita. He gave a program of many hits including gospel. His sound technician also played some rousing piano music. Thelma Blosser provided cookies to celebrate her birthday at the Elvis event, too.

Come join us Jan. 24 for a program by Randolph Whitely, a local physician.

Meals are $3.50 for age 60-plus and $5.25 for age 59 and under. For more information or to make meal reservations, call 620-382-2942 or stop by the center at 309 S. Third St., Marion.

Cold enough? We all knew the cold weather was coming, but that still doesn’t make it any easier to take.

Some residents from Peabody Health and Rehab came to dine with us Jan. 9.

We also had a birthday dinner Jan. 10 with a lot of people taking part in the celebration. Randolph Whitely, a local physician, gave the program. Sonja played the piano and Rachel Gfeller provided back massages. We were closed Monday for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

Free blood pressure checks are planned at 11 a.m. Jan. 17, and will be given by a nurse at Peabody Health and Rehab. They will be here once a month, so we hope everyone will take advantage of this opportunity.
