Senior Scribbles (June 25, 2014)

hillsboro senior center

Richard Dirks of Hills?boro will provide the music program Wednesday, June 25, after the noon meal.

Our birthday dinner is Monday, June 30, with music by Joy Dirks.

A makeup meal is planned for Saturday, July 19, from one of our snow days we used last winter. The meal will be a breakfast-type meal at noon.

The meal is considered a regular meal and so meal tickets will work at the cost of a weekday meal.

July menus are also now available. Our suggested meal prices for those age 60 and over are $3.15. Anyone 59 and under pays $5.

We are here from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and are located at 212 N. Main St., or call 620-947-2304.

Produce sharing began this week when Darvin Markley brought in beets from his garden. They were quickly grabbed up.

Shirley Bowers brought in day lilies for us to enjoy.

June 18 was Senior Center Day, and on this day each month the senior citizens have a business meeting. Virginia Downing is responsible for securing the program. Sue Clough conducted the meeting during which ballots were used to select a nominee from our center for the annual Sunflower Fair nominee.

Jerry Kline was selected. His name goes to the county board, who will choose from all county nominees.

We sang, ?Happy Birthday,? to Caleb Abbott whose birthday was June 15.

Barb Smith gave the program, continuing her travel to Central America and Colombia.

She talked about the Panama Canal in May.

PEABODY senior center

June is rapidly drawing to a close and we are experiencing some very special blessings.

The rains without severe storms are one, and our numbers are on the rise is the other. Thank you everyone for making the increase in numbers a reality.

We have to say thank you to all the people who have stepped up to the plate and helped us recover with both monetary and food donations. We certainly appreciate all that you do to help us sustain in Peabody.

July calendars are out and it looks like we have another delicious month of meals ahead of us. Be sure to call in the day before you would like to eat with us.

Our picnic-style lunch is Wednesday, July 2, followed by Kim Nellan?s great brunch July 3. Thursday we will eat at 9:30 a.m., so mark your calendar.

Whether you are expecting company for the usual July 4 Peabody celebrations or are heading to the lake or to relatives, you will be able to get an early start to the weekend.

The center will be closed July 4, and we will have frozen meals available for that day. If interested, let us know how many you need. The meals will be delivered July 1. We encourage those wanting a meal to be sure and call in orders early.

Birthday dinner for July is July 8. This is always a delicious meal of chicken, mashed potatoes, gravy and all the trimmings.

Meals are a suggested price of $3.15 for those 60 and above and $5 for everyone else. Either way, it is a great value, and we always appreciate your support.
