The center wants to welcome Sherry King, who is our new dishwasher.

The next Show & Tell event is Friday, Aug. 25, and our birthday dinner is Monday, Aug. 28. 

Another activity from 2-4 p.m. Mon­day through Friday is pool playing. If someone would like to join other men playing, please stop by.

We want to thank the Hills­boro Lion’s Club for donating its Farmers Market proceeds toward the purchase of a new refrigerator.

Our next big fundraiser is Saturday, Sept. 16, during the annual Arts & Crafts Fair. For those who can offer some of their time to work that day, please stop by and sign up.

School is back in session, and as a reminder, please watch out for children of all ages walking or riding their bicycles.

September menus are now available.

We hope others will join us for a meal, and volunteers are still needed. In fact, anyone who volunteers is entitled to lunch on us the day they worked!

We are thankful to everyone who supports our senior center in one way or another.

It’s hard to believe August is almost gone—where does the time go? Don’t forget you can always order a frozen meal if you need one, as we always keep some on hand. The frozen meals are handy if you have medical procedures, shopping or just unable to fix a meal. Just give us a call, 620-983-2226.
