Peabody senior center

Nancy Pihl with Marion County Extension will be here April 17 with an amusing talk on ?Who Gets Grandma?s Yellow Plate??

The Marion County board meeting is April 19 at Tampa and will have information important to all of us. Reserva?tions for this meeting can be made by contacting Judy Mellott or the Peabody Senior Center and are due April 17.

Like other site managers, I also went to the advanced training in Manhattan. Some interesting information and tips for improving the center were discussed, but there is also ?doom and gloom? to share.

During the meeting we received a handout, ?The Formula for Sustainable Centers,? which states centers need 44 average daily meals to maintain a cook and center manager. Unfortunately, our center is not at that level.

Meals are $3.15 for people 60 and above and $5, including dessert and drink, for those younger than 60. Please consider joining us. All that is needed for a reservation is a call the day or night before the next meal.

Volunteer Week is April 21 through April 27 and, we will be honoring our volunteers on Thursday of that week.

We are located at 106 N. Walnut in Peabody. Our telephone number is 620-983-2226. Call or come by for additional information, to make a reservation, or volunteer your services.

We would appreciate seeing you whatever the reason.
