Senior Scribbles (Jan. 15, 2014)

Hillsboro Senior Center

We are hosting the Marion County Senior Citizen board meeting Friday, Jan. 17, and our business meeting is Tuesday, Jan. 21, during the noon meal.

Everyone is invited to play Bingo Wednesday, Jan. 22, after lunch.

The center?s winter fundraising gala event is scheduled for Saturday, Jan. 25, at the Milk & Honey Bed and Breakfast, with the time to be announced. The cost is $100 per person.

Entertainment at the event will be provided by Glen and Sheila Litke. All proceeds will go to replace the center?s air conditioning/heating units.

We hope others will join us for this worthwhile cause. If interested, please call the center for reservations.

The birthday dinner is Monday, Jan. 27.

We will be closed Monday, Jan. 20, for Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

The center needs a few more volunteers to include Meals on Wheels drivers. Training is available for that position.

Anyone who helps will get their meal free the day they work. Meals on Wheels drivers receive a free meal each day the week they deliver meals.

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.

We thank everyone for supporting the center.

We were thankful for the newspaper coverage Jan. 3 of our Elvis event.

We have designated January as ?Bring a friend, neighbor, relative or stranger off the street in for lunch,? day.

For Elvis? birthday on Jan. 8, we celebrated for him and Thelma Blosser. She brought home-baked cookies for treats.

We also showed the move, ?Clambake,? loaned to us by Elvis fan, Lanell Hett.

The Area Agency on Aging sent us a letter reporting a very good score on our 2013 site assessment.

Join us and win a game and claim a prize. We would love to have you. Also, everyone who likes liver and onions is reminded not to forget to sign up to eat with us before we play.

Of course we will be offering an alternative for those who don?t care for the liver and onions entree.
