Senior Scribbles (April 4, 2018)

HILLSBORO senior center

The center is planning its Easter dinner at noon Wednesday with music after the meal. We can accept a few more reservations, but someone will need to call soon.

Alyssa Schmidt, physician at Hillsboro Com-munity Hospital, will be here after lunch Thursday, April 5, with a presentation. We will also play games and fellowship that day.

Every Monday and every Wednesday we play bingo after the meal.

We are also in need of volunteers to help during lunch, and those who help will get their meal the day they help free. With school dismissing soon, it might be a fun change during the summer.

Other volunteers are needed to drive for Meals on Wheels, and we offer training.

Volunteers can pick the days and weeks they would like to help and whatever days those are, the meal is free.

Anybody who would like to join in and play pool, we have two to four players every day, and they would like more people. .

We want to thank everyone for their support when it comes to keeping our center productive.

I would like to thank everyone for your prayers when my husband went through surgery last week for stents.

He is at home now, and doing well.

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