hillsboro senior center

Tuesday was the deadline for getting state and federal income tax forms submitted and I hope everyone got their taxes done in time.

This week we have a business meeting at noon Wednesday, April 18, with board members.

Show ?n Tell is April 20 and we ask that people bring their quilts to share.

We will have our ?Shoot-off? fundraiser at 6 p.m. April 28. The menu will include barbecued pulled-pork, potato salad, fruit cups, cookie and water for $6. At dusk, Charlie?s Fireworks will sponsor a fireworks display, previewing new fireworks available for July 4. It will be a blast and hope you can join us for the fun while supporting the center.

If anyone is looking for a place to have coffee, stop by the senior center. The coffee pot is always on and the center is a good place for meetings or get-togethers. Let us know if we can help set something up for your group.

We have great meals and look forward to others joining us for lunch and fellowship. Meals are $2.75 for those 60 and older and $4.50 for anyone 59 and younger.

Reservations are due on or before 9 a.m. the day of the meal.

This week is National Volunteer Week, which makes it a wonderful time to thank volunteers for all they do.

Coffee and refreshments were served Monday to let our senior center volunteers know how much we appreciate them and how grateful we are for their help.

For more information on volunteering, programs, appointments or other center activities, call 620-947-2304. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

Peabody senior center

This has already been a very busy week at the center and we hope everyone has been enjoying the activities.

We had our local board meeting Monday and then Tuesday we had our business meeting followed by playing bingo. That is always a fun time.

Mary Ann Conyers with Marion County Home Health is presenting a program Wednesday. These are interesting programs because they always have valuable information.

That way we can make educated decisions should the need arise. We hope you have made plans to attend.

The county board meeting is Friday, April 20, in Ramona and for those planning to attend, . contact Judy Mellott.

Volunteer Appreciation Month is in April and, we at the center certainly appreciate our volunteers. We know so well that without volunteers we would be unable to operate, which is why on April 26, we will have an appreciation lunch for our volunteers.

If you are a volunteer please make plans to attend and if you are not a volunteer please come down and help us honor those who are. We will also have a program presented by Rodger Charles with the Peabody Township Library on World War I. This program comes highly recommended.

Please remember the importance of calling to make your reservation the day before you plan to eat. It is very difficult for our cook to prepare the correct amount of food if she doesn’t have ample notice on how many will be attending.

We are located at 106 N. Walnut or call 620-983-2226. If you call after hours we have an answering machine that will pick up and you can make your reservation that way.

We keep an ongoing reservation list and menus if something sounds especially good to eat.
