If you knit and want to participate in the purple cap project, come in for more information.

These caps are given to all newborn babies in Kansas. The purple color reminds parents that crying babies are OK even if turning purple so that no shaken baby syndrome occurs.

We?ve celebrated the birthdays of Darrell Weigart and Caleb Abbott this past week.

Flag Day was June 14 so we said the ?Pledge of Allegiance.? Then we thought ahead to Father?s Day with some trivia.

Our building was rented the morning of June 18 by the local coop. Think of us when you need a place to meet.

Shirley Bowers has brought in flowers and so have Beulah Weigart and Robin Nelson.

Senior Center Day was June 19. Sue Clough conducted the business meeting. Joan Meyer told about interesting people and events from her travels to Europe.

If you want to eat with us at noon Saturday, June 29, we will be grilling hot dogs and hamburgers outside and eating inside. Please call to make a reservation.

Join us July 3. We will have a speaker from Harden Hospice who will bring dessert.

Summer has arrived, and with it, so has the heat and wind. Guess each season has its own peculiarities and we learn to deal with it. I was driving in the country over the weekend and I have to admit the fields looked so beautiful with the ripe wheat and the bright green corn waving in the wind. Makes me proud to live in Kansas.

Don?t forget that we will be offering an evening meal at 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 26. We will have either hamburgers or hot dogs with all the trimmings. This is a make-up meal because we will be closed Friday, July 5. Reservations are required by calling or stopping by the center during normal hours.

The center is closed July 4 and 5 to celebrate the holiday. If you would like to have meals over the four-day holiday, please call us and let us know. We will deliver as many frozen meals as you need for that period of time.

We just need to know in advance so we can have enough frozen meals available.

These are delicious meals like Kim Nellans, our head cook, always prepares, but are just prepared and frozen and ready to place on a plate and microwave.

We will have a very important and informative meeting after lunch Thursday, June 27. Elder Abuse Education is the topic and we expect to get some beneficial tips for seniors.

July menus are available at the center. Come by and share a meal with us for only $3.15 if you are age 60 or older, and for those under age 60, the meal is still reasonable at $5.

The birthday dinner for July is July 11. Be sure to celebrate your July birthday with us or come help others celebrate even if you don?t have a July birthday. Just call in your reservation.

Stop by the senior center at 106 N. Walnut or call us at 620-983-2226 to reserve a meal or for information.

We also have some that come in for coffee early in the morning and you might want to join them for the ?latest news.?
