We’ve had an interesting up and down week, but we are close to normal again thanks to Harlow Warneke whom we called on June 7 to come grill hamburgers. We also called Teresa Enck to help in the kitchen.

For now CJ Vanderzanden and his daughter Kimberly are cooking for us.

Harlow was back on the June 12 for his scheduled grilled burger day. Thanks to Marion National Bank we served Chingawassa baked beans also.

The Bluestem Art Guild will be setting up an art display on June 22. The display will stay up until taken on June 28. Come in and enjoy the artwork. Madonna Schafers will talk about the Art Guild on June 26.

Come join us on Saturday, June 22 for a make-up meal at noon with Harlow’s Grilled Burgers, baked beans, potato salad and watermelon. This is to make up one of the days we were closed due to winter weather.

Please consider delivering meals on wheels just one day a week.

We hope all you dads had a great Father’s Day. Last Friday we read trivia, songs, and how Father’s Day began. We passed out a special pen and little gifts for our special guys.

Don’t forget Farmer’s Market every Monday evening. Gayla passed out Farmer’s Market Checks last Wednesday. If you didn’t get here to pick them up, you can give her a call and she can mail them to you. You must be 60 or over and meet the income requirements necessary. You can reach her at Marion Senior Center at 620-382-3580.

We welcome you to join our exercise program. We meet on Mondays and Thursdays from 9:30 – 10:30a.m. You can bring your own weights if you want to use them during our exercising.

Allison or Sarah, Peabody Health and Rehab, will be here to do therapy exercise with us on Wed. June 19 at 10:15-11a.m. So if you need a little help, they will come up with an exercise for you. Again, this program can be for you, so please come.

Commodities will be available at the center from 12:30-2pm on Wednesday, June 19.

I’m always looking for ideas for a program. Do you have a favorite hobby or some other idea. Let me know if you think of something.

Our July menus are available. Come and see us, have a cup of coffee and stay a while. Meals are $3.50 for 60+ and $5.25 for 59 and under. Be sure to call and make a reservation. Take advantage of our Meals on Wheels program, please call for information (620-983-2226).
