Senior Scribbles (10-17-18)

HILLSBORO senior center

On Tuesday, Oct. 16, we have our chief of police Dan Kining coming to talk after lunch.

On Wednesday, Oct. 17, we will have Dr. Zafar here at 11 a.m. for hearing aid checks.

On Thursday, Oct. 18, we will have sing a long after the noon meal.

We will have flu shots from 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. on Thursday, Oct 25. Hillsboro Hometown Pharmacy will be giving them at the center.

We are needing volunteers so please let us know if you can help.

We also are looking for new program ideas, too. Call 620-947-2304 to let us know if you have any.

We also want to remind you in these upcoming winter months that if the school is closed the senior center will close, too. We will have that on the 3 news channels for you.

We have meal tickets you can purchase. They make a great gift idea.

Thank you everyone for your support to our Senior Center.

Thank you so much volunteers for all your hard work. We can always use your help, so if you can spare a couple hours, come to the center and we will put you to work. It takes many hands to make this project a success.

On Tuesday, Oct. 23, we will have Bingo with Shaun Copeland.

On Thursday, Oct. 25, Peggy Goertzen will be coming to our center and give a program on “The Prisoners of War”. Peabody had several prisoners held here, and they would work for farmers during the day and then come back to the Heckondorn building at night. Please take the time to help collect your memories and share them with us.

Gayla Ratzlaff is scheduled to come to Peabody from 8:30 a.m.-2 p.m. on Oct. 25. You can call us and schedule an appointment with her.

We can still use volunteers, so if you can spare one day a week, 2 1/2 hours, would be awesome. You do make a difference!

Come on by and have lunch with us. October menus are now available.

Meals are $3.50 for 60+ and $5.25 for 59 and under. Be sure to call and make a reservation.
