We had a lot of fun at our Christmas dinner and singalong with music by Ann Shepherd.

As we finish out December and start a new year, Bingo is planned Wednesday, Dec. 28 after lunch.

The center will be closed Jan. 2 for the New Year holiday.

Lavina Schroeder of Goessel is here Jan. 3 to show us some of the craft items she makes.

Garvie Schmidt with the Mennonite Brethren Foundation will offer a presentation at 12:30 p.m. Jan. 4.

From the senior center staff, we hope everyone has a happy New Year and many blessings in 2012.

We are still needing volunteers to help from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and those who help will receive a free lunch that day.

January calendars are ready for pickup at the center.

Marion senior center

It’s countdown to Christmas as I write this. We had one bad weather day Nov. 20 with a small crowd of brave souls coming in. Remember that we are closed only when Marion schools are closed because of weather.

Suzanne Thole celebrated her birthday with us Nov. 15 and Keith and Norine Holtsclaw brought in cookies for their anniversary Nov. 16.

We hosted the monthly county board meeting Nov. 16 making 87 enchiladas that morning.

We have a mystery CD found when opening the Elvis Christmas CD, discovering instead “18 Songs by Kalisa.” If someone wants that back, stop by and claim it.

Senior Center Day was Dec. 21. Music was provided by the Marion High School Singers, directed by Dave Clark. They were exuberant. Mary Hett brought in cookies to share and we had special placemats, previously made by Barbara Abbott.

Come join us Jan. 4 for a program on couponing. We are closed Jan. 2.

For more information on programs or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal or stop by the center, 309 S. Third St.
