Marion senior center

It?s good to be back all week after two days of being closed because of weather.

Please remember the center?s policy is that whenever Marion schools close, the center closes, too. Watch television for news of closings.

We had a program Feb. 6 on what to do in a fire situation, and also how to prevent falls.

This week we had a program given by Mandy Smith of Resource Center for Independent Living.

Her area of expertise is helping people cope with low vision so they can stay in their home.

Come join us for lunch Feb. 26. The musical program following lunch will be given by Richard Dirks.

For more information or lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 309 S. Third St.
