HILLSBORO senior center

We welcome June and are ready for summer. We hope for dry weather for awhile to be able to enjoy outside.

This week we have foot care on Tuesday morning. Call for an appointment time.

We will have show and tell on Friday, June 7.

We have our board meeting at 12:30 p.m. on Monday, June 10.

We are needing volunteers, Meals on Wheels drivers, a sub cook and a sub dishwasher.

We would like to have another person in case our other sub cannot help when they need off so just let us know if you interested

We will be having a make-up meal on Saturday, June 22. This will be served just like a regular meal at noon. Call soon if you like to join us so we can get a count.
