Senior Scribbles (April 18, 2018)

HILLSBORO senior center

We want to thank Jessey Hiebert for coming and sharing the ALICE program with us. It was very good and a lot of good information for everyone. This week we will have our board business meeting after lunch.

We will have audiologist Haris Zafar here at 11 a.m. for hearing aid checks. We will have sing-a-long after the noon meal on Thursday, April 19. We hope you will join us soon at the center.

We also want to thank everyone for your support to our center. We are needing extra volunteers to help from 11:15 a.m. to about 1:30 p.m. over the noon lunch. You get a meal the day you help. Also we need Meals on Wheels drivers from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30/11:45 a.m. You get a meal the day you help with the deliveries and you will be trained.

So please let us know if you can help at 620-947-2304 Monday through Friday 8 a.m.-2 p.m. We want to thank our board members for all your help and support to our center.

A reminder that anyone any age can come eat at the center. The suggested donation is 60 and over $3.50 and 59 and under $5.25. It’s a great price for a great hot meal. For more information, call 620-947-2304 or stop by 212 N. Main St.
