Senior Scribbles (June 29, 2011)


hillsboro senior center

The center would like to thank the Arlan and Brenda Penner family and all the volunteers who helped with the meal at last week’s Farmers’ Market. We sold out of food and it was a great success. The proceeds will help with expenses and repairs at the center.

The senior center would also like to thank all those who came out to support the facility.

As we get to the end of June, we have Bingo June 29 following lunch.

Friday, July 1, we have July 4 trivia and the center will be closed July 4.

July calendars are out and ready to be picked up at the center. We would also like to thank Pat Nuss for filling in as head cook. Also thanks to our senior center board members for all their support and fundraising ideas that keep the center going strong.

If anyone has any paint they would consider donating to the center, or anyone interested in helping to paint, we would be grateful. We are planning to paint the inside walls at the center.

We have several projects to tackle and help would be appreciated.

We also want to encourage everyone to 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 volunteer on projects, call 620-947-2304 before 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

GOESSEL senior center

We would like to thank Lois Janzen and Sarita Blosser for taking over for me last week. I picked up some bug somewhere.

Hopefully it will be back to normal now and hope everyone comes to listen to Darlene Schroeder play for us in “Name that Tune” along with the birthday party June 29.

June 6 is Bingo day. Things seem to be going smooth at the center and we would like to see others there, too.

Hope everyone has a safe and happy July 4.
