Senior Scribbles (June 22, 2011)


hillsboro senior center

The senior center is this week’s meal vendor at Hillsboro Farmers’ Market starting at 5 p.m. June 23 on the William F. Schaeffler House Museum grounds, corner of Grand and Jefferson streets.

The menu will include pulled pork sandwiches, potato salad, fruit salad, cookies, tea and water for $6.

The center is having its birthday dinner June 27 with Janet Blue of Marion providing entertainment at 12:30 p.m.

We would also like to thank everyone who donated pies for the Bike Across Kansas fundraising event. In total, 30 pies were donated and all proceeds will help with on-going expenses and repairs at the facility.

One such on-going financial concern is the need for roof repairs. Any donations or memorials toward this cause would be appreciated.

The center has a new commercial stove, which was made possible because of an anonymous donor. We are grateful for the additional money needed to buy this needed appliance.

Join us for a meal. The cost for those ages 59 and under is $4.50 and those over age 60 is $2.75.

For more information or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-947-2304 before 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

— Brenda Moss, director

For those who would like to leave a message for members of the Kansas Congress about cuts in Social Security and Medicare, call 888-722-8514 and follow directions. This information is from the American Association of Retired Persons, also known as AARP. I made my calls and it is easy.

Peabody senior center

As I sat on my front porch looking around my neighborhood recently, I saw the trees fully leafed out in various shades of green, lawns superbly manicured and the array of flowers in bloom, and it caused me to ponder the miracles of God.

It’s hard to remember the cold winter, the many snowstorms or especially the 21 inches of snow.

Activities in the near future will include Nancy Pihl of the Marion County Extension office June 27, who will be speaking to us about nutrition and health.

We are having a hamburger cook-out July 15 to help defray some of the costs at the center.

Circle that date on your calendar and watch for additional information in the weeks to come.

We encourage people to join us for a wonderful mid-day meal and good company at the Peabody Senior Center.

Persons 60 years and older can have a nutritional meal for $2.75 and those 59 and under pay only $4.50.

Meals are available Monday through Friday at the senior center if you have called in your reservation the day prior to joining us.

Meals are served at 11:45 a.m. each day. Please call and reserve your meal at 620-983-2226 or stop by the facility at 106 Walnut St. We have an answering machine that is checked daily if you call during a time that we are not open.
