Peabody Senior Center

This will be a quiet, friendly week at Peabody Senior Center. Come eat a nutritious mid-day meal at the center, and take a break from the flurry of holiday activities.

The center will be closed on Friday, New Year’s Eve.

Weather has not been a problem so far this winter.

Remember that on any day USD 398 cancels school because of inclement weather, the senior center will also be closed.

No meals will be delivered that day.

A heartfelt thank you to all of our staff, volunteers, patrons, and supporters in 2010. We look forward to serving our community in the new year.
