Senior Scribbles (August 9, 2017)

hillsboro senior center

Welcome to August. It soon will be time for kids to go back to school, start college and begin fall sports. This year is flying by.

If anyone is looking for something to do, we welcome volunteers to help at the center from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. You get your meal free on the day you help. We also are looking for a substitute cook and a substitute dishwasher; call for information.

We will have chair massages on Aug. 9, so you can call to sign up. Also from 6-9 p.m. Aug. 9 we will have our ice cream social and will serve sloppy joes, chips and homemade ice cream. We will have music by Bob Delk and the Boys, so enjoy a great evening of fellowship and help support the senior center. We hope you will join us soon.
