Senior Scribbles (4-10-19)

HILLSBORO senior center

We will celebrate National Volunteer Week so please thank your volunteers.

And thank our board members, too, as they are all volunteers.

We will have Krista Matlock here on Friday April 12 from Studio 23 dance.

Paul Ship, from Kansas Legal Service will be here on Tuesday, April 16 for health care decision days. Call for an appointment time to speak with him after the noon meal.

We hope you will join us soon for a meal at the center.

If anyone has program ideas let us know.

We are also looking for another sub for our dishwasher and a sub for our cook so we have a couple of people to call in case one of the subs cannot help. Stop by the center for an application and more information.

Have a blessed week.
