hillsboro senior center

It’s already August, where has the time gone? Come have a meal with us and take one meal off from cooking. We have great fellowship and food, too. We’d love to see you here at the center.

We are planning chair massages for Aug. 3; call for more information. Physician Alisa Schmidt will be here Aug. 4 after the noon meal. She will be coming the first Thursday of every other month.

We will have a fundraiser Aug. 5; it will be our sloppy joe and ice cream social with music by Bob Delk & the Boys. It will be from 5:30-7:30 p.m. This will be by donation. We hope you will come enjoy a great time and help support the senior center.

We have foot care Aug. 16. Call for an appointment. Audiologist Haris Zafar is here at 11 a.m. the third Wednes­day of the month.

We want to thank everyone who donates to the center every month. We also thank all our volunteers and board members for their work. We need more volunteers and Meals on Wheels drivers, so please call or stop by the center for more information.
