Marion senior center

We had two programs on March 14, beginning with Dorothy Deckert from the Kansas Life Insurance Agency in Hutchinson.

Then we had lively music presented by vocalist Gerry Henderson and pianist Keith Allison. Their program included Irish songs in honor of St Patrick’s Day.

Amy Kjellin appeared to be present that day. It was her birthday so we sang to her.

Lucille Bitner gave Keith Allison a tie to wear on March 15. It said “Kiss Me I’m Irish”.

Senior Center Day was March 20 with Sue Clough conducting the business meeting .

We are hoping to find someone willing to donate a freezer to the center. Contact us if you have one.
