Senior Scribbles (4-17-19)

HILLSBORO senior center

We hope everyone will come enjoy a great meal at the senior center soon.

We are needing more volunteers and sub meals on wheels drivers. We are also for another sub cook and sub dishwasher in case our other subs cannot help when we call them. You will get paid training for both positions.

Call for more information at 620-947-2304. We have a great place to work and great fellowship.

We will have our Easter dinner on Thursday, April 18. Please call soon as it will fill up fast. We also need to know if you would like to pick one up or have it delivered.

Our program will be our sing a long. We hope everyone has a blessed Easter with friends and family. We want to thank everyone for your donations to help get our center going strong.

We also want thank all our volunteers. We couldn’t do this without all your help and support.

Remember anyone any age can eat at our center the suggested donation is 60 and over 3.50 and under 60 is 5.25 still a great price for a great meal.

We are also looking for program ideas, too. You get a meal when you present a program at our center.

Does anyone do barn quilt painting or any kind of painting class? I thought I would make a sign up sheet that we could do after lunch sometime or even before lunch.

Please call and let us know.

We hope everyone has a blessed week.

Marion senior center

We came into the Senior Center on April 4 and exclaimed “Janie’s back”. The place was transformed by Easter decorations put up by Janie Westerman, back from Georgia. Her friend Rebekah Hogue came along to help.

We also found cake left for us by the group that rented the building the previous evening. And Max Ewert brought cookies for his birthday.

Robert and Edie Jones provided cookies on April 5. I brought ice cream cups on April 8 for my birthday. We party a lot at the Senior Center .

We observed National Volunteer Week on April 10. The Department on Aging, honored 17 people who assemble the newsletter, unload and box government commodities and gives rides to appointments.

I honored 21 people who volunteer in the kitchen and dining room, deliver meals on wheels, check in people who come in to eat, play the piano and do other various jobs.

Come join us on April 24 when Teresa Mills, director of the Marion City Museum, will be our speaker. Harlows grilled burgers are on the menu.
