The center is having “Show and Tell” July 15 and everyone is encouraged to bring something to share with others.

Diane Yoder and Amy Wedel from Schowalter Villa will provide a program at 12:30 p.m.

Haris Zafar will provide hearing aid checks at 11 a.m. July 20 and at 12:30 p.m., we will have a business meeting with board members.

Mary McFadden will offer footcare by appointment July 21.

Everyone is welcome to attend lunch and stay for the programs. We are always looking for people with interesting stories, hobbies or other projects to provide programs.

The center wants to thank The Lumberyard Inc. for its recent donation of paint, and to all the others who have given paint in the past to help the center.

We are grateful to our volunteers, kitchen staff, Meals on Wheels drivers and everyone who supports the center.

I would also like to thank Pat Nuss for cooking.

The cost of meals for those ages 59 and under is $4.50 and those over age 60 is $2.75.

For more information or to volunteer on projects, call 620-947-2304 before 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

GOESSEL senior center

We hope everyone is staying cool and had a good July 4.

Coming up, we will have Jesse Terry’s recital July 13, which should be very entertaining and on July 20 Mary Jantz will help us understand the changes in Medicare. These changes happen every year.

Goessel is hosting the Marion County board meeting July 15.

There seems to be some confusion on calling in to reserve lunch.

To make it more convenient, you may call in by 9 a.m. on the same day that you want to come for lunch. That will still give Sarita Blosser, our cook, time to prepare.

We just want to thank the volunteers and drivers for their time and we also encourage others to volunteer.

The center has a tai chi video if anyone is interested in checking it out.

Since this will be my last week as manager, I just wanted to say how much I have enjoyed the people I have met here.

I am sorry it didn’t work out, but I hope you give the new manager the support you gave me. God Bless.

Marion senior center

The senior center was a lively place July 2 when we held our ice cream social and cakewalk. This was a part of Marion’s sesquicentennial year of events.

A lot of children enjoyed the new concept of the calkwalk.

The following week, we experimented with the hula hoop attached to a ceiling fan having crepe paper streamers.

This was the designated cakewalk area. Marilyn Geis turned on the fan so we could see what would happen as the streamer spun and ended up wound around the fan.

Lots of people wore red, white and blue July 1 as we celebrated July 4. We gave the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, sang the national anthem and Geis read about the Pentagon in recognition of veterans.

Patriotic placemats were provided by Barbara Abbott.

Come join us July 20 for Senior Center Day. Gene Winkler will talk about iPods.

Remember our cookout is noon July 16.

For more information on programs or to make a lunch reservation, 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

Summer trudges on, but we have a great week planned at the Peabody Senior Center.

Stephen Kauder of Elbing will be here July 13 to explain and demonstrate drumming. His program will be right after we complete the mid-day meal at 11:45 a.m. each week day.

The “Great Hamburger Cook-Out” is from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. July 15. We will have hamburgers cooked on the grill with all the trimmings, plus macaroni salad, baked beans, potato chips, cake, and cool, refreshing lemonade. This is a fundraiser for the senior citizen center to help defray some of our expenses in the economic hardships that seem to be forever ongoing.

Monthly we have been enjoying a Wii Bowling tournament and this month it will be July 18.

Bingo is rescheduled to July 19 because of a conflict with a quarterly meeting of the staff.

For those with an hour or two a week to spare, we would love to have you volunteer at the center. We are always glad to have friendly, willing workers to help us in meal preparation and other tasks. Just call or come by 106 Walnut.

Reservations are required the day before the meal by calling 620-983-2226. We have an answering machine for those calling after our regular hours.
