senior center

We play bingo after lunch Wednesday, July 16. Also, Dr. Zafar will be here that day.

On Thursday, July 17, we will have Terri Pierce here with Bella, the therapy dog, sharing a program.

The Marion County Senior Center Board members will meet here Friday, July 18.

We will have a make-up meal Saturday, July 19, from a snow day back in February. We will serve egg and chee casserole, biscuits and sausage gravy, blueberry yogurt swirl, orange juice and milk. This meal will be at noon as during the week at the same price.

Please let us know ahead of time if you will be joining us that day.

We will have foot care Tuesday, July 22. Call for an appointment.

Our suggested meal prices for those age 60 and over are $3.15. Anyone 59 and under pays $5.

We are in need of volunteers to help from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. You get your meal the day you help. Please think about this. It is great fellowship and a good time to spend away from the house.

Please call the center if you can help. We are very short-handed. Anyone can help. We thank you for your support to our senior center.

We are here from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and are located at 212 N. Main St., or call 620-947-2304.

We had a short program July 3 to celebrate Independence Day. We began with the Pledge of Allegiance. I read ?You Know You?re an American? and we had some trivia. Shirley Bowers played patriotic songs and Connie Fisher led the singing.

We had a musical program by Galen Obermeyer and Mike Moran July 9. They played guitar and sang. They were a big crowd pleaser.

Later that day we were visited by two cameramen from the Kansas Health Foundation. Norma Kline guided them to various food/garden projects. She brought produce to give to the cardplayers present while being filmed. They then went to the Marion County Emergency Food Bank.

Come joins us for lunch July 23. Lydia Gates and Connie Fisher will present a musical program.

We still have some commodities to give away during July. People can get them once a month, as they are available.

For more information or lunch reservations, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 309 S. Third St.

PEABODY senior center

Summer in Kansas is still a constant surprise to me. It shows forth the old saying that if you don?t like the weather, wait a couple hours and it will be different.

So far this summer has been full of changes and actually most of them have been pleasant. I don?t mind hot weather under 100 degrees. After that it becomes a little unbearable.

Bingo will be Wednesday, July 17. Come play and enjoy a few cards of Bingo with friends.

We have had a wonderful surge of people coming to lunch with Kim Nellans back to cook, and we certainly appreciate it. However, it seems the old pattern might be coming back in play. The number of people is slowly starting to shrink again.

Please don?t forget to call and make your reservations and come down to eat with us. We appreciate the support so much, and it makes such a difference to our center.

Mark your calendar for Friday, July 25, because we are having a hamburger and hot dog cookout with all the trimmings. We will serve from 5 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. and no reservations are needed. At 5:30 p.m. Bob and the Boys will be here to play and sing, and we know you won?t want to miss that.

This is a fundraiser for the center and the cost will be by donation. You may come and eat early and listen to music, or you can come later and listen and eat at the same time. It?s your choice, just please come and enjoy and support the Senior Center.

The business meeting will be held after the mid-day meal Tuesday, July 22. We get reports from both the local board meeting and the Marion County board meeting. Those meetings are filled with information that is very relevant to seniors. Again, please plan to attend and glean the information shared.

Reservations can be called in at 620-983-2226 or come by 106 N. Walnut.

Meals are a suggested donation of $3.15 for seniors and only $5 for those not yet 60 years old. Please make a reservation and see what a delicious, enjoyable mid-day meal is served.

On Friday, July 25, we will have Danielle Decker from the Sedgwick County Zoo presenting a program for us after the mid-day meal. We know you will want to come and hear the stories of the zoo. It promises to be very entertaining.
