Marion senior center

We ended the month of June puzzled by a mystery kitchen utensil for sale at the Craft Corner.

Lanell Hett bought it, called her dietician daughter-in-law, Ann, and discovered it was an egg separater.

To make sure, we went to the kitchen, got an egg, and with supervision by Connie Fisher and me, Lanell cracked that egg. To my surprise, the weird wired utensil worked.

Gene Winkler brought birthday treats for us June 30.

Darvin Markley brought in beets, cucumbers and squash.

The newsletter crew gathered to assemble another issue, supervised by Lanell Hett and Gayla Ratzlaff, coordinator with Marion County Department on Aging.

The crew consisted of Fred Puttroff, Norah Richter, Evelyn Jewett, Elsie Reiswig, Mary Ann Timm, Pat Busey, Irmagene Goodman, Mary Hett, Marilyn Geis and Shirley Moore.

Shirley Bowers decorated the table in the entryway with July 4 items and put small American flags on the vases of flowers on the tables.

Come join us July 16 on Senior Center Day. Bennie Holtsclaw will provide entertainment.

For more information or lunch reservations, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 309 S. Third St.

The center will serve hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, baked beans, dessert and drinks. This promises to be a really fun time.

No reservations are necessary, and this is also a come-and-go event.

The cost is by donation and everyone is welcome.

We?ve had a change in schedule for ?Dinner with the Doctor.?

He will be here July 9 instead of July 16 because of a conflict in scheduling.

Anyone interested in coming and didn?t have a reservation for July 9 is still welcome to attend the presentation.

The board meeting is at 9:30 a.m. Monday, July 14. The county board meeting will be July 18 in Hillsboro.

Bingo is after lunch July 17. Plan to stay and play.

We have several options available for a mid-day meal on weekdays.

Those interested can dine with us at 11:45 a.m. or they can have their meal delivered to their home, or some may elect to pick up their meal either at 10:45 a.m. or noon.

Let us know your choice when you make a reservation.
