Peabody Senior Center

We are moving through July and it’s amazing that we are already half way through the first half of the 2013.

I recall as a child it always seemed you had to wait such a long time for any upcoming event, and with aging it seems that the event is over before you can even complete preparations. Guess just another sign of the aging process.

We will be having Bingo on Thursday this week, which is always a good time. Grab a candy bar or other treat and come eat lunch with us and stay for the fun after lunch. Be sure to make a reservation.

The county board is Friday, July 19, at Lincolnville. Call the Area Agency on Aging in Marion, 620-382-3580, to make a reservation due by Wednesday.

Our business meeting is July 23 and will feature our cook Kim Nellans’ wonderful pizza. Be sure to call in your reservations because that is a meal that requires exact numbers to have enough for everyone to enjoy.

Kevin Paul Allen of Allen Eye Associates with us to talk about “Seeing Well as You Grow Older.”

We believe this will be interesting and an informative presentation.

We are being blessed with fresh produce coming in from the local gardens now, and everyone is certainly enjoying that special part of summer.

Thanks to all who are sharing with us. We really appreciate you.

Please come by 106 N. Walnut or call 620-983-2226 to make reservations or to get information about our Senior Center. We would love to see you.

Meals are at 11:45 a.m. and are by reservation, so we will be sure to have ample food for everyone.

Give us a call or come by, we’ll be glad to see you.
