Senior Scribbles (10-23-19)

HILLSBORO senior center

We will have sing-along on Thursday, Oct. 24. 

We will have a show and tell fall stuff on Friday, Oct. 25.

We will soon have the sign-up for our Thanksgiving dinner which will be at noon on Friday, Nov. 15. Please sign up by Monday, Nov. 4 as our cook needs to know early. 

We will have our birthday dinner on Monday, Oct. 28, and then we will have a Halloween party on Oct. 31.

We will have the November menu out soon. We are also going to be closed Nov 25-29 so our cook can take a week of vacation. We also have some projects we need done at the center, and this will give us time to get them done.

We will be sending out meals the week before for everyone that would like one for the days we are closed except for Thanksgiving day which we don’t need to cover. I will send reminders about this for you all. We hope you will understand and we are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

Please come and join us soon for a meal and great fellowship soon .

Peabody senior center

Seems like this month, like all the other past months, is really going fast. Halloween will be here before we know. Hope to see you at the Trunk and Treat on the Oct 31, held on Peabody’s Main Street.

We are back on schedule to do Peppernuts. We will be doing them on Oct 21, 24, 28 and 31, right after lunch.

Shan Copeland will be here to dine with us on Thursday, Oct. 24, and share what BlueStem can do for you.

Gayla will be here from 8:30 a.m. – noon on Oct. 25 to help us with our different Medicare Part D Prescriptions. You can call here at the Center and let her know what time you can be here. It helps her to know who will want to take advantage of this opportunity since a lot of us come back each year to reassess what we want to do this year. If you miss this date she will also be here on Nov 13.

Volunteers, if you could help one day (2 hours) a week, it would help us immensely. We could use a couple of you to help in the kitchen, again one day a week – Monday and/or Thursday. It would be great if once in a while you could work for one of our steady volunteers, for a month, just to allow them a break. It would be one day a week for a month —think you could do that?

Don’t forget you can get the Free Press at Peabody Market and CK Pharmacy,

Be sure to stop by, pick up our November Menus and check out our improvements since the flood.

Meals are $3.50 for 60+ and $5.25 for 59 and under. Be sure to call and make a reservation. Take advantage of our Meals on Wheels program, please call for information (620-983-2226).
