Senior Scribbles (April. 3, 2013)

hillsboro senior center

We hope everyone had a happy Easter as we welcome in April.

Glad the snow is over, even though many of us would have preferred rain instead. Either way, we are grateful for the moisture.

Come join us Wednesday, April 3, when Jack Hobbs shares his antique tractors following lunch. Another activity to consider at the center on April 10 is Bingo, also following lunch.

The center is hosting a community breakfast from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 6 and hoping to see a good turnout. We will be serving waffles and sausage for $6.

April is also National Volunteer Month and I would like to thank all our volunteers for everything they do. This includes the center?s drivers for the Meals on Wheels program and our kitchen volunteers.

In addition, we want to thank our board members because without their support, we couldn?t run the center. For those who happen to see one of these volunteers, please acknowledge their time and energy in helping this community?s senior center.

We welcome everyone to join us for lunch. The cost is $3.15 for those age 60 and over and, $5 for people age 59 and under.

For more information or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-947-2304, or stop by 212 N. Main St.

We hope you saw the quilt display at Marion City Library in March. One of them was hand quilted by our own ladies.

An efficient crew of people prepared the Marion Senior Citizens? newsletter on March 25. Lanell Hett coordinated the work. Those coming in to help were Wanda Hamm, Jane Makovec, Elsie Reiswig, Evelyn Jewett, Al and Gloria Ash, Fred Puttroff, Reign and Marlene Anduss and Sue Clough.

Residents of Hillsboro Manor joined us for lunch March 27.

Our speaker after lunch was Amy Kjellin of Butler County in Marion. She told about the April 6 Free Class Day at the school.

I went to Manhattan March 28 for the yearly mandatory training for site managers. It was my first year at the advanced level, meaning more handout material.

Come join us April 10 for lunch, followed by a program.

For information on volunteering, renting the senior center building or making a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 309 S. Third St.

Peabody senior center

March is but a memory and, hopefully, spring is on its way. I?m really ready to be able to get out and work in the flower gardens and the yard now.

Judging by the people I see starting to work in their yards some must be sharing the same sentiment. Also don?t forget it?s time to start walking outside again and remembering our heart healthy routines.

We have a really good menu scheduled for April so for those who haven?t picked up their copy yet drop by the center.

We hope everyone will enjoy any number of these midday meals and call in a reservation to join us. We are blessed to have a wonderful cook and senior center and would love others to enjoy it as much as we do.

The birthday dinner is Tuesday, April 9.

We always have a delicious oven-fried chicken dinner with all the trimmings.

We also offer free blood pressure checks by the Peabody Care Center on that day each month.

If you have an April birthday, please plan on celebrating it with us. If not, please sign up to help those who do have a memorable day. Leslie Sweasy with Harden Hospice of Kansas will also bring in information and forms on advance directives.

The local board meeting is April 15 and, on April 16 we will have a covered dish dinner at Peabody Care Center, 407 N. Locust St. Bring a covered dish and have lunch with friends at the care center.

We need reservations made the night before so there is ample food prepared.

We are located at 106 N. Walnut, Peabody. Our telephone number is 620-983-2226. Call or come by and check us out.

Meals are $3.15 for people 60 and above and $5, including dessert and drink, for those younger than 60. Hope to see everyone at least several times during the month.
