Marion senior center

Groundhog Day is coming soon and more of this mild winter weather would be acceptable.

It’s helped to bring in nice crowds to the senior center most days.

We had treats on Jan. 23 to celebrate Darrell and Beulah Weigart’s 63rd wedding anniversary. Their daughter, Julie Neuwirth, was present to observe her birthday too.

We welcomed residents of Hilltop Manor eating here Jan. 25. Our program was given by Ted Hayes of the Kansas Sports Hall of Fame in Newton.

He talked about well-known Kansas athletes and our work ethic which helped them excel in sports.

Come join us Feb. 8. The program after lunch will be given by Midwest Hearing.

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

Peabody senior center

The Peabody Senior Center is going to make Valentines for the local nursing home.

We thought this would be something fun for us to do and maybe touch those “young at heart.” Everyone loves to receive a special Valentine.

Our birthday dinner is Feb. 9 9, and will be our cook’s wonderful oven-fried chicken that everyone waits for each month.

We will also have a blood pressure check before lunch that day from 11 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. that Peabody Care Center does for us each month.

Be sure to arrive early enough to take advantage of this wonderful free service.

After lunch Jean Newfield will present a program about crosses. She is always informative and interesting. Be sure to call early enough to be included on this special day.

We are located at 106 N. Walnut and regular hours at the center are 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.

We do extend those hours when we have special events or activities.

Please call in your reservations for a meal the day before you plan to eat at 620-983-2226. We have an answering machine that will pick up if we are not here.

Meals are a suggested donation of $2.75 if you are 60 or above and $4.50 if you are not yet 60. — Ruth Lott, site manager
