Senior Scribbles – June 6, 2018

HILLSBORO senior center

This week Dr. Alisa Schmidt will be here Thurs­day, June 7, and we have games and fellowship every Monday after the noon meal. On Wednesday, we play bingo after the noon meal.

Come say goodbye to our cook, Jessica West; her last day is June 6, as she will be moving. Welcome our new cook, Kendra Henry. We look forward to having her with us, but we will miss Jessica a lot and wish her the best.

We are still looking for volunteers; call the center for more information. If anyone has program ideas, let me know.

Our center had to purchase a new hot water heater, so we hope more donations will come in to help cover the cost. We run by donations, which have been lower recently. But, we are grateful to all who donate to our center. We can give you a receipt for your donation.

Remember, we have meal tickets you can purchase; they make great gifts.
