The “Name That Tune” program was a lot of fun with good piano playing by Darlene Schroeder.

We also have a very good line of programs for July.

Starting the month off is Bing July 6. Other activities and programs include:

• Jesse Terry recital July 13;

• Changes in medicare will be discussed by Mary Jantz July 27;

• Hillsboro Police officer Brad Richards will talk about the K-9 unit and Rico.

We desperately need volunteers in the kitchen and also drivers for the Meals on Wheels programs. These volunteer positions are what helps to keep your center open.

Regarding the hot weather, we hope by the time you read this, it will have cooled off and rained.

Lunch reservations are needed the day before by calling 620-367-2275.

Marion senior center

Summertime is here. Why did we look forward to it? I remember now—at least the streets aren’t icy like in the winter.

A cakewalk and ice cream social was July 2, which is part of the year-long sesquicentennial celebration.

Our penny jar is full and people are guessing the money amount. We welcomed Hilltop Manor residents June 29 and retired United Methodist pastor Robert Priest gave a presentation on his mission trip to Zimbabwe.

Come join us July 13 when Linda Sardou will bring her sugar gliders. They are small, furry animals from Australia.

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.

Peabody senior center

The July 4 celebrations are over and it’s time to settle back into the routines of summer.

Consider including coming for lunch and good company at the senior center each weekday at 11:45 a.m.

The center’s birthday dinner is July 6 and we will have Andrew Topham sharing his recent trip to several European countries. Hearing about these trips have been like reading a good book—almost like being there. We have really enjoyed all the adventures and pictures.

Bingo is July 12 and anyone planning to come is asked to bring a candy bar or two and get in on the fun.

Looking ahead to July 15, we will be having a hamburger cookout at the center from 5 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.

The cost is by donation and no reservations are necessary.

Proceeds will go toward expenses at the center. We will have hamburgers with all the trimmings plus macaroni salad, baked beans, potato chips, and cake.

Call us at 620-983-2226 to make your daily reservations for the next day.

If we are not available our answering machine will make sure that your reservation is received in a timely manner.

We appreciate you making your reservations early so the cook knows how many meals to prepare.

Arlene Unruh, co-site manager
