Senior Scribbles (January 27, 2016)

Hillsboro Senior Center

We are at the end of January already, and now it?s time for February. We hope warmer wea?ther arrives soon.

Bingo is after the noon meal Wednesday, and Kansas Day is Friday, Jan. 29. Bring something with Kansas on it to share. Chair massages are Wednesday, Feb. 3, and if in?ter?ested, call for information.

Footcare is the third Tuesday of every month. Ha?ris Zafar conducts hearing aid checks at 11:15 a.m. on the third Wednesday of each month.

More volunteers are need?ed at the center. Those wanting to help can choose a day each month that works best for them.

We want to thank all the businesses, groups and individuals who donate money or time in keeping the center door?s open. It takes a lot of both and we are grateful.

We want everyone to remember that during the winter months if Hills?boro USD 410 closes, we are closed, too.

For more information, stop by the center at 212 N. Main St., or call us at 620-947-2304.

Marion Senior Center

Since it?s snowing as I write this, I need to remind everyone that the senior center is closed only if Marion USD 408 schools are closed because of inclement wea?ther. So watch the television for this. When we are closed we must make up the meal not served.

We continue our 11 a.m. Friday exercise class led by St. Luke Hospital physical therapists here at the center.

Senior Center Day was Jan. 20. President Sue Clough conducted the business meeting. The program was given by Bob and the Boys: Bob Delk on guitar, Eugene Just, pianist, and Steve Hanneman, trumpet and keyboard.

Come join us Feb. 4 for a special program after lunch.

Remember to come tonight for the center?s ?Soup Glorious Soup? fund?raiser. We are serving from 5:30-7 p.m. and no reservations are necessary.

Kansas Day is Friday, Jan. 29, and the center is celebrating with a biscuit and sausage gravy brunch at 9:30 a.m. Reservations are need?ed so the cook will have plen?ty of biscuits ready to go.

We make Valentines each year for people in our nursing homes, and those who have home delivery meals.

This year, the tradition will con?tinue, and anybody interested in helping is asked to come by the center on Feb. 4 and Feb. 9. It?s a great way to make someone else smile and feel worthwhile.

Our birthday dinner is Feb. 10 to celebrate February birthdays. Reservations are needed.
