Senior Scribbles (Mar. 13, 2013)

hillsboro senior center

We sprang forward, so remember the many activities planned this month.

Three events to mark the calendar for include: Bingo on Wednesday, March 13; a presentation on Thursday, March 14, by Sharolyn Tibbets, one of our board members, and on Friday, Show ‘n Tell.

For those wanting to participate in Show ‘n Tell, please bring quilts to share.

St. Patrick’s Day is Sunday, March 17, and everyone is reminded to wear green.

Tickets are still available for the center’s fundraising event at 6 p.m. March 16 at the Milk and Honey Bed & Breakfast. The cost is $100 per person and includes dinner and entertainment. All proceeds will go to help the senior center.

Volunteers are always needed and for those who can spare one or two days a month, give us a call. Anyone who helps will have their meal free the day they work.

We welcome everyone to join us for lunch. The cost is $3.15 for those age 60 and over and $5 for anyone age 59 and under.

Thank you for supporting your senior center.

For more information about volunteering, appointments or other center activities, call 620-947-2304.

I’m glad to be back writing this column after four snow days in February resulting in nothing to report.

We had birthdays to catch up on, too. Evelyn Obermeyer brought treats March 1, Rhonda Brenzikofer, March 4, and Kathy West, our head cook, March 5.

She made hanky pankys and pumpernickel bread with a savory topping.

We have a Walk Kansas team again, the Senior Center Sensations. We accepted the challenge to go across Kansas and back or 846 miles.

Team members include Caleb Abbott, Jerry Kline, Sue Clough, Rhonda Brenzikofer, Shirley Bowers and Janet Bryant, captain.

Our program on March 6 was “Looking Back” with Norma Kline, Jean Pierce and Joan Meyer. Norma told about the house she lives in, a Victorian home.

Jean and Joan have been friends since first grade and grew up in Marion.

Remembering place and events intrigued the audience.

Senior Center Day is March 13 with a program following lunch.

For information on volunteering, renting the senior center building or making a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 309 S. Third St.

A quick note to remind everyone commodities will be available from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. March 14. The last time we had commodity distribution, some of our regulars did not come in. We would like people to mark their calendars. We don’t want anyone left out.

On Wednesdays we’ve been having Lenten devotions. We only have three Wednesdays left before Easter and will include Marilyn Cox presenting March 13, Rodger Charles, March 20, and Larry Timm presenting the final devotion March 27.

The center is hosting the Marion County board meeting on Friday, March 15. We encourage everyone to consider attending these meetings as they are filled with information for seniors. It could be enlightening.

Everyone is invited to attend, but be sure to make your reservation for lunch.

We will be having the monthly business meeting for our group Tuesday, March 19, after lunch.

Because of the snow at the end of February, the World Day of Prayer had to be postponed. It has been re-scheduled for Friday, March 22, immediately after the midday meal. Make reservations early for this inspiring prayer time. The people of our community work hard for this presentation.

Meals are served each day at 11:45 a.m. and require a reservation so our cook are sure to prepare enough food. Meals are a suggested contribution of $3.15 for persons age 60 and over, and are available to anyone for $5.

You need not be 60 to eat with us. This price includes drink and dessert.

Spring is on its way—I know because I had lost an hour’s worth of sleep last weekend.

For more information or to make a lunch reservation, the center’s telephone number is 620-983-2226.

We look forward to seeing you at 106 S. Walnut St.
