Senior Scribbles (July 12, 2017)

hillsboro senior center

This week we have chair massages on July 12; call for more information. On July 13, we’ll have a jam session after the noon meal. On July 14, we have beautiful piano music during our noon meal by Esther Funk. On July 18, we welcome the North Central Flint Hills Area Agency on Aging board members here for the annual meeting. On July 19, Dr. Zafar will be here at 11 a.m. for hearing-aid checks.

Please remember to drink plenty of water during these hot days. We are still in need of volunteers. Call the center at 947-2304 if you can help; you get a free meal the day you volunteer. We also need substitute drivers for Meals on Wheels and are looking for a substitute cook and dishwasher to fill in as needed.

Thank-you to all of our wonderful volunteers, board members and everyone who helps support our senior center. If you can donate a little extra money to help the cause, we would greatly appreciate it.

I want thank everyone for continued prayers for my husband, Rick. He is doing well, but has a long recovery ahead of him. We are blessed to have great friends and family in our lives.

We celebrated ahead of the July 4 holiday with a short program on July 3. We recited the Pledge of Allegiance and sang the national anthem. We also shared some trivia. We sang “God Bless America,” led by Connie Fisher and accompanied by pianist Keith Allison. Earlier, Shirley Bowers played patriotic music on the piano. We had Girl Scout cookies and ice cream from Carlsons’ Grocery.

After the Fourth, Shirley Bowers brought in her patriotic teddy bear to display. Roger Bitner shared day lilies from his garden.

Myrta Billings gave the July 6 program about nutrition for older people, highlighting the use of herbs and spices.

Come join us on Senior Center Day on July 19.
