Senior Scribbles (August 30, 2017)

hillsboro senior center

We want to thank the Tabor College students for doing volunteer work at our center last Saturday. They did a great job.

We are also needing more volunteers at the center from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m., and we need Meals on Wheels volunteers, too.

Anyone who volunteers will get their meal free the day they work.

Another area where help is needed is in the kitchen with a substitute cook to fill in when the regular cook is not working.

The end of August is almost here, and we welcome September. The center is closed for the Labor Day weekend Monday, Sept. 4.

Footcare is Sept. 5, and anyone interested in this service needs to call for an appointment.

We will be serving a meal for the annual Arts and Crafts day on Saturday, Sept. 16. This is a fundraiser for the center.

The center’s men are looking for more pool players from 2-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For those who enjoy the game and want to play should let the other pool players at the center know.

There haven’t been enough players, so they haven’t played much. We want to thank everyone for supporting our senior center.

For more information, call 620-947-2304, or stop by 212 N. Main St., Hillsboro, KS 67063.
