We are grateful for every bit of help received for the senior center.

Our ice cream social is from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Aug. 5. In addition, we will have sloppy joes, chips, pie a la mode. The cost is by donation and all proceeds benefit the senior center for completion of recent projects.

PEABODY senior center

Our birthday dinner was held this past week, and we always enjoy seeing everyone. The best part is celebrating birthdays with those having one that month.

We have a beautiful senior who will be 99 years old this month. Yea! Hope we can all say that some day.

Piano music was played during the dinner by Sonja Koslowsky. She played several patriotic songs and of course the birthday song.

Our seniors even sang some of these songs to­ge­t­her. Peabody Health and Rehab sent their nurse to take blood pressure readings before lunch. Monday morning many seniors enjoyed a back massage given by Rachel Gfeller.

Volunteer drivers and kitchen help are always needed, even if for a back-up when someone is sick or having to take time off. Please take time and consider this. Nobody needs a special license to drive Meals on Wheels and the van is provided. No license is required to be a greeter or do dishes. Besides, we love the company.

Tina Spencer will be here July 20 to help us with the iPad.

The iPad will be something new for us to use when we register to vote. Be sure and come.

Check our menu for the week of July 25, bet you can’t resist at least two or three of these meals. Looking forward to seeing you.

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.
