hillsboro senior center

We hope everyone is enjoying the summer time; stop by and enjoy a meal with us soon.

We will have bingo after lunch June 14 and will have sing-a-long after lunch June 15. On June 16, Esther Funk will play music during lunch. Haris Zafar will be here June 21 at 11 a.m. for hearing aid checks.

We thank everyone for supporting our senior center. Thanks to everyone for your prayers for my husband, Rick, who is doing well but will have a long recovery.

We still need volunteers at the center from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.; volunteers get a free meal. We thank everyone who came to the farmers’ market last Thursday to help support our center.

Meals are $3.50 for anyone age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and younger.

Gayla Ratzlaff will be here June 15 at 11 a.m. to distribute farmers’ market checks. To qualify, you must meet income guidelines and be 60 years or older. These checks can be used at any farmers’ market in Kansas to purchase fresh fruits and vegetables.

Our Board meeting was June 12; Grief Share was June 13; our birthday dinner will be June 14, Sonja Kos­low­sky will be at the piano and Rachel Gfeller will be doing chair massages. The SCMC meeting will be June 16 in Hillsboro. Dinner with Dr. Whitely. Pizza is set for June 23.

We are still collecting pictures honoring our mothers and fathers, do you have any to share?

Thank you for supporting our centers by eating with us. Please come as often as you can. What worries our seniors more than anything is that they hope the center will still be here for their children and grandchildren. That will only happen if you come.

Meals are $3.50 for age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and younger.

For more information call 620-983-2226. For those who can’t come in, call and we will deliver.
