Senior Scribbles (August 16, 2017)

hillsboro senior center

The ice cream social was well received. Because of your support, we had a great turnout. We thank all the volunteers who helped our board members, and for all the donated pies. We are blessed with great people. We also thank our board members for all they do to keep our center going.

Our business meeting is during the noon meal Aug. 15; on Aug. 17 we will have sing-a-long after the noon meal.

We still need volunteers. Call 947-2304 for more information; you get a free meal the day you help. We are also looking for people to present programs at the center after the noon meals. We enjoy music, people who have been on trips or do interesting crafts and hobbies—just let us know.

We thank everyone for supporting our center.
