Senior Scribbles (July 2, 2014)

hillsboro senior center

We are so happy we have our new air conditioner. It was installed June 27 and it will keep us cool and help a lot.

All of us are grateful for the donations received to make it a reality.

New windows also will soon be here.

July is already here, and this year is moving along fast.

We hope you will join us sometime soon at the senior center.

Activities and events in the near future include a meal Saturday, July 19. This is a make-up meal for one of our snow days back in February.

The make-up meal will be a breakfast meal at noon, and is the same price as the other week day meals. We hope to see you.

For those who have ideas for a program, we are interested.

Let us know when you might be willing to share, and you get your meal free that day.

Maybe some people need something to do. We encourage them to volunteer at the center.

Bingo is July 2 and Rex Savage will be talking about wind farms July 3.

We are closed Friday, but if you need a frozen meal, let us know.

We thank everyone for their support.

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

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

PEABODY senior center

I want to thank everyone who has rallied to help us ?revive? the center.

We had a great month and our upward trend should continue with everyone helping us.

The support has been appreciated.

The year is half over and what a strange beginning we had for 2014.

Seems like everything has been ?extreme? with the weather.

The winter was so cold and was almost never ending. Now we have been blessed with so much rain and cool weather.

It has been pleasant, and I vowed not to complain about the weather if we could ever get past the cold.

So far I haven?t had any complaints.

We will have brunch at 9:30 a.m. Friday, July 3.

This will be our cook, Kim Nellans, delicious breakfast casserole with either cinnamon roll or coffee cake. It is worth the trip.

The birthday dinner is Tuesday, July 8, and Fay Wagner will be singing and talking to us.

The meal is chicken and all the trimmings.

Our local board meeting is July 14, and the county board meeting is July 18, at Hillsboro.

The business meeting is July 22 and will be here at the center.

Everyone is encouraged to attend all of these meetings. They are informative for all seniors.

Also scheduled July 25 is Danielle Decker with the Sedgwick County Zoo.

Danielle has been with the zoo for a long time and has lots of fun and interesting things to share.

Meals are delicious at the senior center.

Come and join us by calling 620-983-2226 the day before you plan to eat, and we will set a place for you.

Meals are $3.15 for those 60 and older, and $5 for all others.

It?s a great value for everyone.

We also offer a service where you can pick up a ?to go? meal at either 10:45 a.m. or noon.

Just call in as you normally would and specify what time you would like to pick up the meal and we will prepare it for that time.

It is a great feature if you have a designated lunch hour or plans that take you elsewhere at lunch.

Happy July 4 and summer.

The center is at 106 N. Walnut St. in Peabody.
