Peabody senior center

This week is National Volunteer Week and, like so many other organizations we could not remain open and able to serve the community without our volunteers.

They are truly a blessing to us. In light of that fact, we are honoring everyone at our midday meal, Thursday, April 25, who volunteers for us.

Those who are regular volunteers or occasional volunteers, appreciate everybody, and each person is so very important to us and our operation.

It?s hard to believe we are already moving toward May.

Hopefully with that we will finally leave Old Man Winter behind.

We will be grateful to work in the yard, take walks in the neighborhood, plant gardens, and do all the things we love doing once spring has sprung.

The countryside is beautiful now with the green of winter wheat and the trees all leafing out. We are blessed for all the moisture we have received.

The National Day of Prayer is May 2 and Linda Eden will be leading us in prayer and devotions after the midday meal Thursday.

Plan to eat with us, but those who can?t make it, they are always welcome to come in for the prayer and devotions.

The birthday dinner is May and Randolph Whitely, a medical doctor, will be discussing diabetes. This is a very important topic with the number of diagnosed diabetics in our nation. Make reservations early.

We are always so glad to have you join us.

Commodities for May will be here May 9 and, we will package them up after the meal. They will be distributed after lunch May 10 more than likely. Watch the newspaper for further information on that.

We always enjoy having people join us for lunch.

Reservations are needed the day before or after hours by leaving a message on the answering machine.

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

Come and see us, we will be watching for you.
