Senior Scribbles (April 26, 2017)

hillsboro senior center

Volunteer Week continues and it’s during a time when those who can help are greatly needed.

Another need is for programs. If someone wants to present a program, let us know. Whether volunteering or offering a program, we want people to know they are appreciated and will receive a meal free of charge the day they help. A substitute head cook is also a need. For more information on any of the positions, please call or stop by the center.

For those who haven’t been to the center, or for others who haven’t been here in a long time, please stop by and see us.

Meals are $3.50 for anyone age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and younger.

For more information, call 620-947-2304, or stop by 212 N. Main St., Hillsboro.

We continue to help people celebrate their birthdays. They often bring treats. Lynne Watts celebrated April 14 and Shirley Moore belatedly observed her birthday April 18.

We had an efficient crew to unload and box up government commodities on April 19. They were Vickie and Bill Kaempfe, Al Ash, Gene Winkler, Sue Clough, Roger Steward, Kathi Beeton, Andy Ash, and Gary and Lila Un­ruh.

Senior Cen­ter Day was on April 19 with Sue Clough con­ducting the business meet­ing. Irene Richmond asked that her reserved parking space be used now by Jean Bailey.

Harlow Warneke grilled hamburgers for us that day, and Shirley Moore brought in her first iris.

Our program on April 19 was given by Denise Greene, director of the Better Busi­ness Bureau. She talked about their services and also about the many scams to be aware of.

We are hoping someone has a freezer to donate. Call us if you can.

Come join us May 3 for a musical program by Charles Good and Robin Carr of Lincolnville.

Meals are $3.50 for those age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and younger.

For more information or to make a meal reservations, call 620-382-2942 or stop by 309 S. Third St.
