Senior Scribbles (June 1, 2016)

hillsboro senior center

June is here, and we hope others will join us this summer for a meal.

Chair massages are June 1. Alisa Schmidt, medical doctor at Hillsboro Com­mu­nity Hospital is here June 2.

An identity theft workshop is at 12:30 p.m., also on June 3, and will last about 45 minutes. We hope you can join us for that, but remember to call ahead of time for a meal that day.

We have games and fellowship every Monday after the noon meal, and on every Wednesday, we play bingo after the noon meal.

We want to thank everyone who helps support our center. It takes a lot to get our monthly bills paid so any amount that you can help donate helps our center.

We are also in need of volunteers. If anyone wants to help, please call or come by 212 N. Main St.

The suggested do­nation for our meals is $3.50 for those 60 and older and $5.25 for people 59 and under.

To make a re­ser­vation or for other in­for­mation, call the 620-947-2304.

PEABODY senior center

We had quite a week with “Lunch with the Doc” and a talk by Randolph Whitely, medical doctor, and back massages by Shirley Monday to ending with a great holiday brunch Friday.

The weekend here was filled with ceremonies, class reunions, family get-togethers and, of course, couldn’t miss the dinner at the Peabody-Burns High School put on by the sophomores.

Our center was closed Memorial Day, but reopened May 31.We hope everyone had a good time over the holiday and for those of you who came from out of town, we wish you a safe trip going home.

Monday, June 6, we will do massages with Rachel in the morning before lunch and Gayla Ratzlaff, coordinator with the Marion County Department on Aging, will be here to discuss Tai Chi and do a demonstration.

Sometimes a demo is better than a thousand words, which is true for me. We are anxious for her to come.

Our birthday dinner is June 8 with Sonja at the piano. Baked chick­en will be served with all the trimmings. Hope you can come and help celebrate June birth­days.
