Marion senior center

We?re enjoying the balmy weather during June, a leisurely time, and a great opportunity to join us for lunch at the senior center.

We have a cookout planned Saturday, June 29. This will make up one of our snow days when we were closed.

We welcomed Evelyn Jewett back after a long recuperation at home.

Fred Puttroff celebrated his milestone birthday on June 3. He turned 60 years old and Mary Hett had baked cookies for treats.

One of the people we deliver meals to, Elsie Reiswig, sent back a bunch of yellow iris with our driver.

Mary Lake was our speaker June 5. She wrote a novel called, ?Departings,? and explained the process of getting it published. She also read an excerpt from the book.

We purchased a copy of the book to be checked out. Margaret Pickering, a classmate of Mary?s, was a guest.

Mary Rogers brought in photos of her paintings of local landmarks. We hope to see an actual painting soon.

Peabody senior center

We had quite a bit of excitement at the Peabody Senior Center June 10.

Phil Cihiwsky of San Diego, Calif., is walking across the country in support of Meals on Wheels and Senior Meal Programs.

His itinerary had him walking through Peabody so we were able to have a reception for him and also had a meal prepared for him as he was scheduled to spend the night in Peabody.

We were all excited as we did a very impromptu reception and meal and let the people eating lunch know we were having the special meal in his honor.

Everyone that was available to attend seemed to have a good time.

Our monthly birthday dinner is Wednesday, June 12, and we will honor all the people with June birthdays.

We will have a presentation about Oliver tractors, which should prove to be very interesting. Please try to join us.

The local board meeting is June 17 and we encourage anyone interested in our senior center and the events we are having to come and participate.

Everyone?s input is important in having a center people can participate in and attend.

Show ‘n Tell is Tuesday, June 18. Bring in whatever is of interest to you that can be carried in and share the item with us.

There are always lots of diversified things that people bring in and share with us.

Please gather up something that you enjoy and share it.

You can contact us at 106 N. Walnut or call, 620-983-2226.

Please come by for a meal or to drink a cup of coffee and visit, or just say, ?Hello.?

Remember you may make reservations even during the night for the next day by calling.

Volunteers are also welcome.

Meals are a suggested contribution of $3.15 if you are 60 or older, and $5 for people under age 60. Come try us, we aren?t the ?old? people of yesteryear.
