Senior Scribbles (July 18, 2012)

hillsboro senior center

Hearing aid checks will be available July 18 by Haris Zafar beginning at 11 a.m., followed by a business meeting with the Senior Center board of directors during our noon lunch.

Business meetings are a good way for everyone to learn what is happening with their center.

National Lollipop Day is Friday, July 20, and everyone is urged to stop by for a treat. Like most unneeded, but fun holidays, no one is sure about the origins of National Lollipop Day, other than it?s a great time for something sweet.

Marion County Fair days begin July 25 and we hope others can come and join us for a meal and fellowship.

We want to say, ?thank you,? to Newton Masonic Lodge 142 for donating a fridge and freezer to our center. We are grateful because the freezer we had went out and we were in desperate need of another one.

We could use help painting various areas around the center. Anyone who would like to volunteer would be welcome.

Volunteers are also needed to help set tables for lunch and clean up from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Those who help get a free meal the day they work.

Janis Wright, senior center head cook, will be doing a needle weaving class at 1:30 p.m. July 24.

A sign-up sheet is available at the center or people can call.

For more information on volunteering, classes or other center activities, call 620-947-2304. The deadline to make reservations is 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

Hope to see you at the center soon.

Our wish for garden produce was granted when Shirley Bowers brought in tomatoes one day. I went to the grocery store and bought bacon to go with my tomato.

Arlene Bowers has a July 4 birthday, so she brought treats in for us the next day.

Raymond and Nadine Koegebehn brought their grandsons, Hayes and Kline in July 6. After lunch each boy played the piano for us.

The ONE Committee, senior center managers in Marion County, met here July 10. We shared statistics and program ideas.

Lenore Dieter provided piano music for us July 11 with light classics. We ended by singing, ?God Bless America.?

If you have jigsaw puzzles to loan or give us, we are tired of the ones we have.

Everyone can just step outside to know summer is back in Kansas with three-digit temperatures playing havoc on the corn crops, gardens and comfort of people right now, but fall is on the way.

Our business meeting is Wednesday, July 18, at the center. The menu has changed to barbecued pork because Kim Nellans, our head cook, was unable to get chicken in her last order. Pork is the other white meat and healthy for us with Kim able to “come to the rescue” again.

Another menu change because of a scheduling conflict is Friday, July 20. We will be having a chef salad, breadstick, Mandarin oranges, cookie and milk. On July 26 we will be serving up chicken enchilada, rice, tossed salad with dressing, cantaloupe and milk. We have just reversed the menus on these two days, so you might want to mark your calendars.

We look forward to seeing you at the center. Our numbers have dropped off since the heat has increased, but it is still imperative that we reach our daily goals. We always have a delicious midday meal that you can share with friends and visit and not eat alone. Come join us for the fun.

The county board meeting is Friday, July 20. It is open to everyone and is very informative. If you would like to go, contact Judy Mellott or the center to make arrangements.

To make a meal reservation, volunteer or to ask a question, call 620-983-2226 or come by 106 N. Walnut St.
