SENIOR SCRIBBLES (7-25-18)

HILLSBORO senior center

We have the August menus ready, so stop by to pick one up soon. We also need volunteers. Please call the center for more information at 620-947-2304.

We hope you will join us soon at the center. We want to thank everyone for supporting our center at the Farmers Market meal last Thursday.

We have show and tell on Friday July 27. Bring anything to share or if you have any fair memories since this is fair week. We also have our birthday dinner on Monday July 30.

We will have Don Schroeder and Steven Owens here to speak on Tuesday July 31. They are running for the 74th House of Representatives. They will speak after the noon meal, so call soon if you’d like to join us for a meal that day or you can just come and hear them speak after the meal at 12:30 p.m. We thank them both for coming to introduce themselves to us at the center.

The center is going to need to purchase a steam table soon. Ours is not working well so we need donations to help purchase one. And then we still need those donations to help keep our center going strong as we only run off donations to pay our bills and insurance. We pay our dishwasher too, so this all adds up.

We are grateful for everyone who supports our center. We have great fellowship and some for people this is the only meal they have so we want to keep our center going strong. If anyone has any program ideas let us know. For more information, call 620-947-2304.

Marion senior center

We’ve had some nice items brought in to share this week. One was a gorgeous flower arrangement from the Edmund Steiner funeral service.

Then a woman whose name we didn’t get (give us a call!) brought in many crocheted items for our Craft Corner to sell.

Janie Westerman brought in T-shirts printed with our senior center name as a fundraiser. Most were bought immediately. Watch for news of another shipment.

Jerry Kline asked to speak at noon one day so he could express appreciation for all Sue Clough does at the senior center.

Senior Center Day was July 18. During the business meeting it was decided to raise the rent for the building to $75—still a bargain.

Thanks to Connie and Ed Riffel for doing extra meal deliveries recently while one of our drivers was on a trip.

We will host U.S. Sen. Jerry Moran at a townhall meeting here at 9:30 a.m. or 10 a.m. Saturday July 28.

Come join us on Aug. 1 when we have a presentation by Marion Assisted Living personnel.

Peabody senior center

The rain has been such a welcome relief for our area and looks like this week may give us a little break from the heat.

This has been a very busy month for us. We will have a program on Friday July 27 with Peabody Chief of Police Bruce Burke bringing a guest speaker. His program will be about “Keeping our Seniors Safe.”

Don’t forget—August voting will be held here at the Peabody Senior Center.

Our August menus are printed and ready to go. Stop by and pick one up, have a cup of coffee, stay for a meal and enjoy good conversation. We look forward to seeing you. 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. Call for information at 620-983-2226.

We are needing kitchen volunteers. Please take a day or two out of the month to volunteer. You won’t be sorry.
