We want to thank everyone who played an instrument last week at our jam session.

We plan to make this a monthly event, and I will have the date in the ?Scribbles? when the next one will be.

As August comes to a close, we are planning to play Bingo on Wednesday, Aug. 27.

Show ?n tell is Friday, Aug. 29, and then we will be closed Monday, Sept. 1 for Labor Day.

August menus are ready. We encourage everyone to stop by and pick one up.

More volunteers are needed, and for those who can, please let us know.

If someone has an idea for a program or would like to present one, we encourage them to call.

Volunteers get their meals free the day they work, and anyone presenting a program also gets lunch on us.

We thank everyone for their support.

The senior center is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. We are located at 212 N. Main St., or call 620-947-2304.

This past week we had an apple fairy leaving fruit outside our front door. What next? A watermelon fairy?

We had a make-up meal at noon Saturday to cover a February snow date.

Thanks to Ed Riffel, who grilled hamburgers and hot dogs outside on the grill, loaned to us by the VFW.

Jean Pierce on Aug. 18 brought treats for her birthday.

Senior Center Day was Aug. 20. Sue Clough, president of Marion Senior Center, conducted the business meeting. She welcomed the Lincolnville ladies who included Maxine Barton, Alta Huffington, Ruth Tajchman, Marilyn Montgomery, Cruz Carasco and Twilla Baker.

Peabody Senior Center

To all my friends that read my weekly articles regarding the Peabody Senior Center, I apologize for my long absence, and with no explanation.

On July 14, I fell in a non-work-related accident and broke my kneecap. I have had setbacks in the healing process, but I am finally able to ?man my post? again.

I’m glad to be back and have missed these weekly columns.

We will start out by announcing a menu change for Friday, Aug. 29, which is we will have our Friday before a holiday brunch featuring Kim Nellans special breakfast casserole and blueberry coffee cake.

This will replace the lunch. We like to have these brunches so those going out of town will be able to get a good start to the day and their holiday plans.

Make reservations early for brunch at 9:30 a.m. Aug. 29.

Going into September, we will have special things going on, and while we will be closed Sept. 1 for Labor Day. Freezer meals are available for that day.

If interested, call by Aug. 27 and the meal will be delivered to you.

Birthday dinner is Sept. 9. Come celebrate your September birthday with us or help someone else celebrate.

It is always a fun time with oven-fried chicken and all the trimmings. Be sure to make reservations early.

We are going to celebrate Patriot Day Sept. 11 and encourage everyone to wear red, white, and blue to honor our country.

We will also have Marion County Sheriff Rob Craft with us that day. We always enjoy his talks and the information he shares with us.

Our September menus are out and everyone is welcome to stop by and pick one up.

We are always glad to have volunteers to help us, and if you have a few hours to spare, give us a call.

Reservations can be called in at 620-983-2226 or come by 106 N. Walnut.

Meals are a suggested donation of $3.15 for seniors and only $5 for those not yet 60 years old. Please make a reservation and see what a delicious, enjoyable mid-day meal is served.
