Senior Scribbles (June 8, 2016)

hillsboro senior center

Games and fellowship continue after lunch on Wed­nesday, June 8, with bingo. The jam session is Thursday, June 9, and if anyone plays a musical instrument, we en­courage them to join in on the fun. Our fire safety program planned Friday is rescheduled to Monday, June 13. We hope others can join us for lunch, and then stay for any of the programs or ac­tiv­ities at the center.

We need substitute drivers for the Meals on Wheels program and volunteers to help at the center. Whenever someone volunteers, they receive a free meal the day they work. We also want to thank everyone who helps support our center. It takes a lot to get our monthly bills paid. Any amount donated helps our center.

The suggested do­nation for our meals is $3.50 for those 60 and older and $5.25 for people 59 and under. To reserve a meal, volunteer or make a donation, please call 620-947-2304 or come by the center at 212 N. Main St.

PEABODY senior center

It’s hard to believe we are already into June. These last few days have been magnificent. The only drawback I see are the weeds and seed­lings are back, but they just to seem to multiply.

Our first farmers market was from 5-6 p.m. Monday. We had local produce, jams, jellies, breads, sweets, and Kay Jones had fudge by Mona C’s. Kay is also one of our volunteers. Rachel Gfel­ler was here Monday doing massages. She does this as a volunteer and do we appreciate her back and hand massages.

Gayla Ratzlaff, Marion Coun­ty Department on Aging coordinator, joined us Monday to discuss and demonstrate Tai Chi moves.

Our birthday dinner is Wednesday, June 8. This is a dinner people won’t want to miss. We have the best baked chicken and all the trimmings, including birthday cake. Nine seniors are celebrating this month.

The center’s board meeting is in the morning on June 13, and later our guest speaker is Mitze Bailey. She plans to discuss “Heartland Enriching Life,” about Hos­pice. If anyone has questions after her presentation she will be here to answer them.

Flag Day is June 14 and commemorates the adoption of the U.S. flag in 1777. It is also a good time to remember the men and women who have and continue to fight for our freedoms.

Fundraiser Day is from 5:30-7 p.m. June 15 at the center, 106 N. Walnut.

We look forward to your visit. It’s because of everyone’s support that we are able to keep the center going.
