We want to thank the Marion County Senior Center board for having its meeting here last Friday.

Activities this week include Bingo after lunch Jan. 25 and on Jan. 27 is Crazy Hat Day. We are encouraging anyone to wear silly or funny hats that day.

The center?s birthday dinner is Jan. 30 and will recognize anyone who had a birthday in January.

The center?s next fundraising event is Feb. 18 at the Milk and Honey Bed &?Breakfast, 1362 E. U.S. Highway 56. The cost is $100 per person. Everyone is asked to bring someone to this Valentine?s Day dinner and, entertainment is included.

Join us during the week for a cup of coffee and fellowship or to play cards, work a puzzle or enjoy a board game.

Anyone at any age is welcome to join us for lunch, enjoying the fellowship. We know everyone has a great story to tell.

We want to thank everyone who supports the center, to all the volunteers, and to Pat Nuss, head cook, and Gail Fallon, assistant cook.

Marion senior center

What an amazing winter we have had so far, which is reflected in some nice crowds eating here.

If you have a group of children, or even adults, looking for a project, how about decorating some placemats for the center?

Purchase a pack of 50 plain colored mats and have fun decorating.

Our quilt is still in need of bids, the most recent is $60. Come see it.

Senior Center Day was Jan. 18. We had a good crowd for lasagna and spinach salad.

?Bob and the Boys? performed favorite tunes after lunch. The group consists of Bob Delk, Eugene Just and Steve Hanneman.

Come for lunch Feb. 1. The presentation after lunch will be given by Good Shepherd Hospice.

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

We are excited to have an art presentation by Showalter Villa in Hesston Jan. 26 after lunch.

This is a new program they have started so come and experience it with us.

Their programs are always very interesting, so I’m sure none will be disappointed.

After the program we will have our monthly Wii bowling tournament, which is always a lot of fun. No experience necessary, just put a smile on your face and an attitude of “fun” in your heart and you will have a good time.

Beverly Dillon of Peabody will be here Jan. 27 with a presentation recognizing Kansas Day.

Something new at the center is a viewing machine for those who have trouble reading papers and letters because of vision problems. The family of Bill Krause donated the machine to us to be used by those in need. Their gift is appreciated.

Stop by 106 N. Walnut during regular hours Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. We do extend those hours when we have activities and we welcome people to use the viewing aid whether on a regular basis or for a specific occasion.

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.
