Hillsboro Senior Center

Jean and Arnie Boyd provided entertainment Tuesday after lunch.

Haris Zafar, an audiologist, of Wichita is here beginning at 11 a.m. Jan. 18 for hearing aid checks. Also, Marion Home Health is providing foot care. Call for an appointment time.

We are having a sing-a-long Thursday, Jan. 19, and Friday, Jan. 20.

Hillsboro’s center is hosting the Marion County Senior Center board. We are still in need of substitute Meals on Wheels drivers and also volunteers to help over lunch and clean-up. Please call for more information.

Thanks to everyone who helps support our center.

The center welcomed new board members.

Board members are vital to the center’s success and, without them, the center would cease to exist.

These board members do a lot to keep the center running smoothly.

The suggested meal donation is $3.50 for ages 60 and older, and $5.25 for everyone else. For more information, call 620-947-2304, or stop by 212 N. Main St., Hillsboro.

Peabody Senior Center

As I write this, I pray all of us have gotten through this storm successfully. We always worry about the what ifs, but have faith.

Wednesday, Jan. 11, we had a great birthday dinner with many birthdays to celebrate. We were given an informative program about our grocery store by owner Mike Crow and N.M. Patton. They talked about the future of the store and other things going on in Peabody.

The week quieted down with the cold winds but we had many brave ones come in.

This Monday our center was closed for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, but we were put on alert Friday afternoon in case the ice storm causes Peabody to lose electricity.

Our board met Jan. 17.

Rachel Gfeller provided chair massages Jan. 18. The same day, Renae Riedy will present part three of her program on enhancing aging

Dinner with the doctor will be Jan. 20. Also, the Senior Citizens of Marion County board will meet at Hillsboro.

Have a good week and take time to enjoy the sunshine and each other. We look forward to seeing you, stop in and have a cup of coffee with us.

If you can’t come in, call and we will deliver. Meals are $3.50 for age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and un­der. For more information, to schedule a program or make meal reservations, call 620-983-2226.
