Senior Scribbles (6-20-18)

HILLSBORO senior center

We hope everyone had a great Father’s Day this week. We will have our business board meeting Tuesday June 19. On Thursday, June 21, we will have sing-a-long after the noon meal. On Monday, June 25, we will have our birthday dinner at noon. We hope you can join us soon for a meal at the center and cool off in these hot temperatures.

We want to thank everyone for supporting our center. We run off donations only, so we needed those donations to purchase a new hot-water heater, which was a big expense, and we pay the utility bills, insurance and all repairs at the center.

The money we get from the meals goes to the North Central Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging to pay for the food, the head cook and site manger. If you can help with a donation, we will be grateful and can give you a receipt for the donation.

We will be serving the farmers market meal Thursday,June 21, at the senior center. We will be serving catfish, coleslaw, chips and water for $7. This is a fundraiser for us, so come support our center.

We are looking for a substitute head cook to fill in when our cook needs off for vacation or illness. You will be trained for this position; call or stop by the center for more information.
