Senior Scribbles (Aug. 28, 2013)

Hillsboro Senior Center

September menus are now available and can be picked up at the center.

Join us Wednesday, Aug. 28, for Bingo after lunch.

Remember the center will be closed Monday, Sept. 2, but frozen meals can be ordered by Friday, Aug. 30.

Thanks to everyone who recently donated fruits and vegetables. It was a great blessing and they were enjoyed.

In addition, we want to thank those who came to the fundraiser Aug. 17. All proceeds from the event went to support the facility.

Norma Cabeen, the center?s assistant cook, is retiring after many years of service.

We hope she enjoys her retirement. We will miss her.

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

Peabody Senior Center

Another month is coming to a close and it is evidenced by heat, dryness, and the start of school. Those are surely signs that fall is right around the corner.

I love the seasons that we experience here in Kansas, each one has its own distinguishing characteristics.

We will have our birthday dinner Thursday, Sept. 5. It will include oven-fried chicken with all the trimmings. Everyone is invited. If you have a September birthday, come celebrate with us. Make your reservations early.

Another date to mark on the calendar is Sept. 16. The Marion County Health Department will give flu vaccinations at the center before lunch at 10:45 a.m. They will be offering several doses including the regular one, which is for those up to 64 for $35, high dose which is for those 64 and older for $50 and flu mist which is $40.

The health department will be able to bill Medicare, Blue Cross and the state insurances. This clinic will be in addition to the one held at Peabody Elemen?tary School.

The board meeting will be at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 16. We encourage everyone to attend this meeting. It?s a good way to know what is going on at our center and to have input into activities.

Peabody Care Center will host a covered dish dinner at noon Tuesday, Sept. 17. Bring your favorite dish. This is always a good time for sharing and fellowship for everyone.

On Wednesday, Sept. 18, Randolph Whitely, medical doctor, will be here for ?Dinner with the Doctor.? He always has an interesting and informative program.

Bingo is Sept. 19. We encourage those interested to bring a couple of candy bars for the prize basket and come have fun after lunch. If you need a ride home, we will find one.

Reservations need to be made for meals the night before the next day?s meal. The center has an answering machine that picks up throughout the night, so even if you decide at 1 a.m. to have lunch, it?s not too late to call 620-983-2226 and make a reservation.
