Senior Scribbles (4-3-19)

HILLSBORO senior center

Welcome to April.

We will have Dr. Schmidt here speaking on Thursday, April 8 during lunch.

National Volunteers Week is Sunday, April 7 – Saturday, April 13 so thanks to all our volunteers for all they do to help at our senior center.

We would also like program ideas, too. Let us know if you know of any.

We are also looking for a chest freezer or upright freezer for our center if anyone has one they like to donate. We are getting a lot of commodities in and need the extra freezer space.

We will be having Easter dinner on Thursday, April 18. Please let us know soon as our cook needs to order the food the week before to have everything ready. It fills up fast. The program will be our sing a long that day!

If anyone has any holiday decorations they like to donate we could use some new ones for all the holidays. We leave our Christmas tree up all year and change the seasons or holidays and also decorate the tables and in our front lobby.

We hope you all have a blessed week.

—Brenda Moss, director
