Senior Scribbles (August 24, 2016)

hillsboro senior center

We have games and fellowship every Monday after the noon meal and we have bingo every Wednesday after the noon meal.

We hope you will join us soon for a meal. We want to thank the new freshmen Tabor College students for coming and cleaning all our chairs and windows on Saturday.

We are very blessed to have there help once a year and wish them the best in their first year of college. Welcome Tabor students to the community.

We are in need of volunteers and Meals on Wheels drivers. Please call the center for more information at 947-2304. We also would like ideas for programs or if you like to present a program let us know. Volunteers get a meal the day you do.

We also need donations to help keep our center going.

If someone is interested in becoming a board member, please let us know. We meet at 7 p.m. the second Monday. As a board member, there are fundraisers that we need help with. For those who can spare some time, we would like to see you at the center. September menus are now ready, too. We thank everyone for your support to our center.

Marion senior center

We’re almost finished with our Olympic trivia questions. I had to correct my pronunciation of one equestrian word, that of dressage, so I learned something new. We thanked Ed Riffel for coming and grilling burgers for us on Aug. 12. We received some cucumbers and tomatoes one day, but the kitchen crew didn’t recognize the person, and I wasn’t here to see her.

We now have colored pencils and a stack of coloring pages for anyone to use.

Senior Center Day was Aug. 18. Sue Clough conducted the business meeting. The program was given by Peni Ens and Sharon Ewing from St. Luke Living Center.

We had an impromptu party that day with Vickie Kaempfe bringing in homemade mac salsa (with cheese) and zucchini cake.

Come join us Aug. 31 when the program will be given by Phoebe Janzen. She will show her photographs of Marion County.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

Where does the time go when we are having fun? It’s been another busy week with the Senior Board meeting, Tai Chi, and Dinner with the Doctor, which was a pleasant surprise when Joe Black, physician assistant, ate with us and then gave us a very interesting topic about sleep apnea.

Black works with Whitely. and is here on Thursdays and Fridays.

Peabody Senior Center held the SCMC meeting, which was a great success. We had several women and men representing our coun­ty with special guest, Keisha Green, from Manhattan.

Keisha brought several Keynotes, A News Magazine for Older Kansans and Their Families, to take with them and share with their diners and friends. Be sure to get one if you didn’t receive one in the mail.

The Senior Centers should have extra to pass out. A dinner of baked ham, sweet potatoes or baked po­tato was served with homemade shortbread and fresh strawberries as a dessert.

Barbara Smith presented a video of scams going around on Aug. 22, and other important matters to us. Plus, we had chair massages with Shirley Davis.

Tai chi was on Aug.23. but will not be taught Aug. 30.

The class is back on Sept. 1, 6 and maybe Sept. 13. Keep these dates in mind.

School started for the Peabody-Burns schools Aug. 23 so this will be a busy couple of weeks.

Take care to look out for children if driving because they can dart out in front of cars. Sept. 2, Our center will have a Labor Day brunch at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 2 with a breakfast casserole. blueberry muffin or cinnamon roll on the menu.
