After a siege of sickness, we?re seeing people back eating with us. They said they are glad to be back.

We celebrated Norma Kline and Thelma Blosser?s birthday Jan. 10. An anonymous person decided we needed ice cream, too, and went to Carlson?s Grocery to buy some.

Clayton Hamm and Larry Blosser went to Council Grove Jan. 13 to pick up government commodities.

A forklift wasn?t available so the drivers formed a line and manually unloaded the boxes.

People here who helped to bag them were Shirley Moore, Caleb Abbott, Sue Clough, Val Morgan, Jon Thole and Jerry Kline.

Senior Center Day was Jan. 16. Sue Clough conducted the business meeting.

The program was given by Jeremy Armstrong, administrator at St. Luke Hospital.

Come join us Jan. 30 when Lane Smith, Marion?s new chiropractor, will give the program.

After being closed Monday in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, we will be scrambling to make up some numbers for the week.

Please plan on coming down and enjoying good food and good company for the remainder of the week.

We will play Bingo Thursday, Jan. 24, for prizes. No need to bring anything other than a willingness to have fun and win a prize.

Kansas is celebrating its 152nd birthday Jan. 29 and we will remember this at our noon meal that day.

Also on Jan. 29 there?s a make-up meal in the evening for the day we had to close because the water pipe froze and broke.

We will have ham and beans with cornbread between 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

It will be a come-and-go event, but we will need to have reservations made so there is ample food.

Gayla Ratzlaff, coordinator with the Marion County Depart?ment on Aging, will be at the center Jan. 30 to assist people with the Homestead Tax and LEIP.

Please call the center at 620-983-2226 to make an appointment for her to help you.

We look forward to seeing you at 106 S. Walnut St. or call us.
