Peabody senior center

Birthday dinner this week welcomed guests from the Marion area, Eugene and Betty Just, Evelyn and Clifford Hett, Joyce Olson and Wanda Williams. They came to help me celebrate my birthday as well as other birthdays. All of us enjoyed the meal and our time together. Dr. Whitely gave a program on frostbite, Rachel Gfeller gave chair massages and Sonja Koslowsky played the piano.

The Light Tour on Wednesday evening was great. Many residents from Westview Manor, Peabody Health and Rehab, Indian Guide and some from the center were able to see the beautiful lights here in town. We appreciate USD 398 for providing the bus and the driver, Mr. Young. Paula Edmunds drove the Peabody Rehab bus so everyone riding with her could enjoy the evening. We ended the evening with hot chocolate, coffee and lots of snacks. Board members were at the center to greet, serve and visit with all those who came.

The board meeting is on Monday, Dec. 17.

We will have Christmas Dinner with a baked ham dinner on Tuesday, Dec. 18.
