Senior Scribbles (July 13, 2016)

hillsboro senior center

We have games and fellowship Mondays after lunch. On Wednesdays after lunch everyone is welcome to stay for bingo.

Our jam session is after lunch Thursday, July 14, and at 5 p.m. we are serving a meal at the Hillsboro farmers market in Memorial Park. The menu for this fund­­raiser includes pulled pork, cabbage salad, cookie and water for $6. Pro­ceeds will help pay for recent improvements at the center.

Footcare is Tuesday, July 19, and those interested are asked to call for an appointment. Haris Zafar of Wichita is here at 11 a.m. July 20 for hearing aid checks, and July 22 is Show & Tell.

Bring your quilts or home­made items to share. We hope you can join us soon at the center. We thank everyone for their donations.

It’s what helps to keep us going. The money for the meals goes to North Central Flint Hills Area Agency and the donations stay at the center, which is what we use to pay our monthly bills, which is why fundraisers are so important.

The suggested do­nation for our meals is $3.50 for those 60 and older and $5.25 for people 59 and under.

To reserve a meal, volunteer or make a donation, please call 620-947-2304 or come by the center at 212 N. Main St.

Here’s hoping you survived July 4. It was very lively here in Peabody with the dog show, flea market downtown, carnival, re­unions and fireworks galore.

I think that is what Pea­body is known for is their fantastic firework display.

This week is a short week for us at the center we were closed on July 4. Our holiday brunch went well. We had quite a few seniors attend. We decorated the center and our window for the holiday, tables were decorated with tablecloths and star candles. It was a fun morning.

Upcoming events include our birthday dinner July 13; Senior Citizens of Marion County meeting July 15; busi­ness meeting July 19; din­ner with Randolph White­ly, medical doctor; and July 20 Tina Spencer, Marion County clerk will be here to help us with the iPad.

Please come and be a part of our center. We always need volunteers to help fill in driving or when some one has to go to the doctor. Our center thanks the community of Peabody for all its support.

The suggested price for meals is $3.50 for people 60 and older, and $5.25 for those 59 and younger. Meals are available by home delivery, pick-up, or dine-in. Please call for a reservation. Frozen meals are also available.
