Senior Scribbles (10-30-19)

HILLSBORO senior center

We will be getting into a new month as we welcome November and begin the holiday season.

We are looking for people that would like to serve on our board. The board meets at 12:45 p.m. on the second Monday of every month. We also do a fundraiser to help with them, but otherwise not a lot of your time is needed. If you be interested, please call the center at 620-947-2304 or stop by and let us know. We will be needing to get the names on a ballot for people to vote by the beginning of December.

We would like to see some new faces to help us keep our center going strong.

Our Thanksgiving meal will be at noon on Friday, Nov 15. Please sign up soon.

We will be closed the week of Thanksgiving (November 25-29) so our cook can take a week vacation, and we are getting some projects done while we are closed. We will send out extra meals the week before for the days we are closed so let us know if you would like one.

We hope you will join us soon at the center for a great meal and fellowship. Our suggested donations is 60 and over $3.50 and under the age of 60 is $5.25. Anyone of any age can join us for a meal.

We also can use more volunteers call for more information. Have a blessed week.

—Brenda Moss, director

Peabody senior center

Halloween is this week! Hope to see you at the Trunk and Treat on Oct 31, held on Peabody’s Main Street.

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

Gayla will be here from 8:30 a.m. – noon on Nov 13 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.

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).
