PEABODY senior center

This has been a busy week but we are enjoying the weather, and it looks like it is time for wheat harvest and more planting.

We had Rachel here for our massages Monday, and Gayla Ratzlaff was here to discuss Tai Chi and gave a demon­­stration. We have a lot of seniors anxious to start this program.

Our birthday dinner was a lot of fun and many attend­ed. Sonja played music during the dinner and after­ward everyone sang a selected songs from our song books. I always look forward to our birthday dinners, it’s almost like having monthly reunions with new ones joining in.

Something we need to bring to the attention of seniors living at home is that the town of Peabody began their farmers market from 5-6:30 p.m. Please contact Gay­la Ratzlaff at the Marion County Department on Ag­ing at 620-382-3580 to see if you qualify to receive checks for purchasing your fruit and vegetables at the farmers market. The checks come in $5 increments.

Our board meeting was Monday in the morning, and then our program today will be presented by Mitzi Bailey from Heartland Enriching Life (Hospice). Dinner with the Doctor is Wednesday, June 15. We always appreciate the time he takes to speak with us about current concerns. In addition, there is a question and answer time following his presentation.

We are having a fundraising event from 5:30-7 p.m. June 15. Homemade potato salad, grilled hamburgers and hot dogs, plus all the trimmings will be served.

Come and help support our center as the fundraiser helps to pay the bills. Be­sides, look at all the people you can see and visit with that you haven’t seen for awhile.

The suggested price for meals is $3.50 for people 60 and older, and $5.25 for those 59 and younger. Meals are available by home delivery, pick-up, or dine-in. Please call for a reservation. Frozen meals are also available.

For more information or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-983-2226 or stop by 106 N. Walnut St.

Peabody’s farmers market is from 5-6:30 p.m. in downtown Peabody on the west side of the street. Some 11 vendors are signed up.
