Peabody senior center

It’s hard to believe it’s August already.

Everyone around here is either canning their produce, giving it away or selling it. We have wonderful people in town who are willing to share their extra produce with our diners so they can have fresh food at home.

We were glad that our center was used as a place to vote this past Tuesday. It brought back many good memories of the days everyone used to vote here.

We will be celebrating our Birthday Dinner on Wednesday, Aug. 8.

The board meeting is on Monday, Aug. 13.

Grief Share will be from 3-4:30 p.m. on Aug 14.

The SCMC Board meeting will be held in Burns on Friday, August 17.

We hope you can stop by and have a cup of coffee with us, stay for a meal and enjoy good conversation. Meals are $3.50 for 60+ and $5.25 for 59 and under. Take advantage of our Meals on Wheels program, please call for information at 620-983-2226.
