Senior Scribbles (5-30-18)

HILLSBORO senior center

We need more volunteers. Now that school is out, if anyone 14 years or older would like to help, let us know. Call 620-947-2304 for more information.

We hope you will join us soon at the senior center. We also want to let people know that the center is run on donations only. The suggested meal donation goes to the North Central Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging for our food and also pays wages for the site manager and head cook. It does not pay our monthly bills to keep our center open.

We are needing more donations because we have been low the past few months. We are going to need a new hot-water heater, and that will take a lot of money. If you can help, we will be grateful.

We need to keep our center going, for it offers great fellowship and sometimes is the only meal our seniors have. We thank everyone for your support.

Anyone of any age can eat at the center. The suggested donation for age 60-plus is $3.50 and for age 59-and-under $5.25. For more information, call 620-947-2304 or stop by 212 N. Main St.

Marion senior center

We welcomed members of the county board May 18. We also thanked Norma Kline for providing coffee cake for the group, and Shirley Moore brought in a bouquet of irises.

We had our first make-up meal Saturday, May 19. Thanks to Harlow Warneke for grilling the burgers. Three of us wore tiaras: Thelma Blosser, Lucille Bitner and me. Thelma even got into her prom dress and wore it. We had the TV on for the royal wedding and had cupcakes made by Jan Wiens. We signed a wedding card and enclosed meal tickets in case the royal couple comes to Kansas.

We also sang “Happy Birthday” to Lucille Bitner that day. Loan Meyer brought treats for her birthday on May 23. Myrta Billings came that day for a wrap-up session of her nutrition lessons and led us in exercises.

We welcomed Teresa Ends as our official substitute cook as well as a weekly volunteer.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

A special thank-you to all veterans. We hope you were able to participate in some of the celebrations that went on in Peabody. This is a time of class reunions, special dinners and a beautiful Memorial Day service at Prairie Lawn Cemetery.

One of the most beautiful sights at night is the “Dis­play of Flags” with a light shining on each flag representing a veteran who is buried there.

Mark your calendar for 5:30-7 p.m. Wednesday, June 13. Peabody Senior Center invites the public to a dinner featuring grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans and scrumptious desserts. The proceeds benefit the senior venter. Cost by donation.

Wednesday, May 30, we will have a program called “Exercising Your Brain,” given by Dawn Miller, “Angels.” Dawn will also be in charge of our Caregiver meetings. Several of us have been a caregiver and would have liked to had help. This is a chance to meet with other caregivers so you know you aren’t alone.

Volunteers are always needed. If you have a couple of hours once a week, we could sure use your help.

Stop by and pick up our June menu, have a cup of coffee or an ice tea and stay for a good nutritious meal for $3.50 for age 60-plus and $5.25 for age 59 and under. Be sure to call and make a reservation.

Take advantage of our Meals on Wheels program; call 620-983-2226 for information.
