Senior Scribbles (7-18-18)

HILLSBORO senior center

Here are some upcoming programs, so mark your calendars. Craig Dodd will speak at our center Monday, July 23, after lunch. He is running for Marion County commissioner for District 1. Then we will have Steven Owens and Don Schroeder, who are running for the 74th House Representatives, speaking at our senior center on Tuesday, July 31, after the noon meal, so call early to reserve a place if you plan on eating with us that day.

We look forward to seeing you at our center. We will be needing volunteers for over the noon lunch to help. We have a few of our volunteers who are school age, and they will be going back to school in August. So we hope we can get more volunteers to help. We also can use Meals on Wheels drivers too. You will be trained.

We still need donations to keep coming in as we run off of donations only, and we want to keep our center going strong. We are thankful to everyone who supports our center. We can give a receipt for your donation to our center.

We will be serving catfish, coleslaw, chips and cookie at the Farmers Market again on July 19th. Here at the center this is a fundraiser for us, so we thank you all for your support. Also, we are looking for new program ideas, so if you have one or would like to share one with us, let us know. For more information, call 620-947-2304.
