It may be hot, but we’re having fun anyway.

We celebrated Cow Appreciation Day July 14 by first hearing some superstitions about milk.

Then we had a melodrama about paying the mortgage on a cow. Our performers included Theresa Graham, the cow; Ralph Popp as Pa with Sue Clough as Ma; Arlene Bowers was sister Sue and Jerry Kline was brother Claud. The villain, complete with cape and drawn on mustache, was Clayton Hamm. Appearing as the hero was Vern Bowers.

We had our second make-up meal cook-out July 16 with grilled hot dogs and hamburgers.

Theresa Graham, our cook, suffered the heat to provide for us.

We had a cardboard stand-up loaned to us by Judy Dannenfelser for National Day of the Cowboy July 22.

Gene Winkler gave a program on smart phones and other fantastic electronic gadgets for our Senior Center Day July 20.

Come join us Aug. 3. Our program will be provided by Jeanne Byquist and Tammy Walker with the Cancer Center in Salina and sponsored by the Avon Breast Cancer Outreach Program.

For more information on programs or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal or stop by the center, 309 S. Third St.
