Senior Scribbles (Aug. 24, 2011)


hillsboro senior center

We would like to thank the city of Hillsboro for advertising our recent fundraiser on the big sign, the Hillsboro Free Press for the large ad and Julie Klenda for the farm eggs she donated to the center for our community breakfast fundraiser.

About 180 people were served at the breakfast.

As we get close to September, we would like to invite everyone, regardless of age, to come in for games, gab and goodies from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday. We will have coffee and sweet treats every day.

Some activities coming up include the monthly birthday dinner Aug. 29 and “Name that Tune” at 12:30 p.m.

Bingo is planned Aug. 31.

Anyone new to the community is invited to join us at the senior center for a good meal at a good price.

The cost of meals for those ages 59 and under is $4.50 and those over age 60 is $2.75.

For more information, or to volunteer on projects, call 620-947-2304 before 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

AGAPE senior center

We thank the board members and other volunteers for helping us serve meals to senior citizens on Monday through Friday.

Since we do not have a manager or cook, our food is being prepared by the Peabody Senior Center cooks. Thanks to them for doing this.

We have an immediate need of a site manager. The part-time job is three to four hours per day, five days a week and includes some paperwork.

If interested, call the North Central-Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging toll-free at 800-432-2703 if you or someone you know is interested.

We also need volunteers to help serve meals and help transport the meals to Goessel from Peabody.

Because our meals are prepared in Peabody, our menu is the same as theirs, so check their menu to see what we will be eating.

Call 620-367-2275 before noon on the day you would like to join us for a meal to make a reservation. Also mark your calendars for Aug. 31 when Lloyd Vogt of Hesston will be telling us about antiques.

Bring your favorite antique that day to tell about it or learn about it from him.

Everyone is invited to take part in meals and activities at the senior center.

Marion senior center

Because there is no official holiday to observe in August, we combined several things on Aug. 11.

Theresa Graham, our cook, made fresh peach cobbler so Paul and Carolyn White brought ice cream to go with it. We used decorated placemats provided by Barbara Abbott, and it was Kool-Aid Day, so we had orange Kool-Aid too.

Harold Conyers celebrated his birthday with us Aug. 12, bringing treats. We had goulash that day. It was noted that the Daily Guidepost devotion the day before was about goulash.

Sign up for flu shots, which will be given here at the center. We need at least 25 people and then a date will be set with the Marion County Health Department.

Senior Center Day was Aug. 17. We had a musical program given by Henry Desair. He played his guitar and sang. It was also Pencil Day. Everyone got a new pencil, which we raised in a cheer for cursive writing. The pencils were then sent to Marion Elementary School.

Come join us Aug. 31. Tootsie Snelling will talk about butterflies. Wear your butterfly jewelry or other butterfly clothing that day.

For more information on programs or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal or stop by the center, 309 S. Third St.
