Senior Scribbles (Dec. 4, 2013)

Hillsboro Senior Center

We hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends.

On Wednesday, Dec. 4, chair massages will be offered. The center will also have a sign up for its Christmas dinner Dec. 19.

Reservations are filling up quickly, so please call by Dec. 11.

We will also be having a soup lunch fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 7.

In addition, we will have booths set up for Christmas shopping. We hope others can come enjoy the great meal and do some shopping.

Doors open at 9 a.m. for shopping.

We will be closed Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, Dec. 24-25. Those who might want frozen meals on those days are asked to let us know by Dec. 18.

We want to make sure our cook can get the meals together to be delivered or picked up Monday, Dec. 23.

Volunteers are needed for ?Meals on Wheels? when the regular driver is sick or takes time off.

Help is also needed from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. and that day?s meal is free to those working. The suggested meal donation for people 60 and over is $3.15 and those under 59 is $5.

We are located at 212 N. Main St., or call 620-947-2304.
