Peabody senior center

March is almost here. Will it come in like a lion and go out like a lamb? Who knows.

With the winter we have just experienced, we know it is just a wait-and-see game. Who could imagine that we could have the mild winter that we have just experienced?

Throughout Lent we will have a pastor from our area giving an inspirational devotion each Wednesday after lunch.

These are very uplifting and we encourage others to come share a meal and stay for a wonderful short message of hope. Marilyn Cox will be speaking March 7.

Our monthly birthday party is March 6. If you have a birthday in March come celebrate with us and, if not, come help those who do have a wonderful day and meal. As always we will have Kim Nellan’s delicious oven fried chicken and all the trimmings for that special day.

We have several special things lined up for the month of March so come join us and learn some new information and visit with your friends over lunch.

Meals are served each weekday at 11:45 a.m. and we would love to have you call and reserve a meal with us.

March menus are now available.
