PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

While driving down Sunflower Road returning to Peabody this week-end, we were reminded of how beautiful our countryside is.

Almost to U.S. Highway 50, the view was magnificent, passing the ripening wheat fields and facing the rolling hills filled with trees and the shades of green, mixed like an artist had painted the picture. What a beautiful state.

Summer has really arrived with temperatures already over 100 degrees reported.

Come in at midday to the Senior Center and enjoy a delicious meal, good company, and wonderful air conditioning. It will be worth the effort to come join us.

The Kessler’s report on their cruise and trip to Florida had to be postponed due to “technical difficulties” and will now be right after lunch on Thursday, June 8.
