hillsboro senior center

Chair massages are April 6, and after the noon meal is bingo. In addition, Alyssa Schmidt, medical doctor, is here April 7. Show and Tell your wall hangings is Friday, April 8. We will celebrate National Volunteer Week April 10-16. Please thank volunteers for all they do. We want to thank everyone who donates to our center, too. It takes so much money each month to pay the bills and every donation helps. If someone would like to volunteer, call the center at 620-947-2304 for inform?a?tion.

Anyone who does help will receive their meal free the day you help. For those who know of somebody new or just someone that might want to come try our center, invite them for a meal, which is free.

We want to thank all our volunteers, which also in?cludes people helping in the kitchen, Meals on Wheels drivers, our board members and so many others.

Barb Bitner and I went to mandatory annual training in Manhattan March 24. We each took the advanced training. Sue Clough also attended.

Our program March 30 was given by Sheri Schmidt, her children Amber, Aiden and Abram, and her mother, Belinda Engler. They sang in various groupings, A cappella, and Amber performed an interpretive dance to a song Sheri wrote. The boys had a good time playing pool with Warren Smith.

Easter morning was quite the surprise. I expected a few snow flurries not 4 inches. Still, it was a beautiful sight, and a blessing for the firefighters and the farmers.

The Easter Egg hunt went on as planned because by the time the hunt started, the snow was all but gone.

This is Volunteer Appre?ciation month with our dinner on April 11. We hope everyone can attend the dinner and show how much all of us appreciate how much volunteers do to help us at the center. It would be hard to do all that needs to be done without them.

Mark your calendar for April 13 the birthday dinner April 13. It?s a good time to celebrate April birthdays, but don?t forget to make your reservation either.
