Senior Scribbles (Aug. 21, 2013)

Hillsboro Senior Center

The center is hosting Marlene Fast on Thursday, Aug. 22. She plans to discuss Tabor College alumni.

We hope everyone can join us starting at 5:30 p.m. Friday, Aug. 23 for the center?s fundraising event. Sloppy joes, pie and ice cream will be served until the food runs out at a cost of $7.

Entertainment is being provided by the Cottonwood River Band.

Please consider coming out for a great evening of fellowship and food.

Other activities include Haris Zafar of Wichita, who will be here at 11 a.m. Wednesday, Aug. 21; the monthly business meeting also that day and the center?s birthday dinner Aug. 26.

Anyone can join us at the center for a meal. The suggested donation is $3.15 for those age 60 and older and $5 for those under 60. It is a great price for a great meal.
