hillsboro senior center

Our heartfelt thanks go to everyone who attended the fundraising event Saturday at the Milk & Honey Bed and Breakfast in Hillsboro. We also wanted to thank Joyce Barkman for having the fundraising dinner at her place and Robert and Anita Brookens for providing the entertainment. All proceeds will go toward the center.

Programs this week include Haris Zafar of Wichita at 11 a.m. Wednesday, March 20, offering hearing aid checks followed at noon by a business meeting during lunch.

Hillsboro Police Chief Dan Kinning will be here Thursday, March 21, talking about telephone scams.

This month?s birthday dinner is Monday, March 25. Anyone celebrating a birthday in March is encouraged to join us for lunch.

Volunteers are needed from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Those who can help one or more times a month would be appreciated. Anybody who volunteers will get their lunch free that day.

Join us from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. April 6 for the next fundraising event. We are having a waffle and sausage breakfast.

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.

We are continuing with our Lenten devotionals throughout March. Easter is March 31.

Pastor Rodger Charles from First Baptist Church, will be presenting, and this will also be the first day of Spring, which represents ?New Life.? Then on the final Lenten devotional we will have pastor Larry Timm from Gracepoint in Peabody. We hope others will join us.

We will have Bingo Thursday, March 21, right after lunch. Bring a couple Easter treats for the prize basket.

Linda Eden will be hosting the rescheduled ?World Day of Prayer? Friday, March 22. It goes without saying that we can pray at any time, so this time will be just as special as it would have been March 1.

We will finish up March with our regular holiday brunch on Good Friday, March 29, so everyone will have a little extra time for their Easter holiday plans.

Kim Nellans, our head cook, will be preparing a breakfast casserole with eggs, potatoes, and ham. We will also have cinnamon rolls or blueberry coffee cake. It is always such a delicious way to start off a holiday weekend.

Happy holidays to everyone and please plan on joining us at the senior center for fun, food, and fellowship.

Those who don?t attend are missing out and we are missing them if they aren’t here, too.

We are located at 106 N. Walnut, Peabody. Our telephone number is 620-983-2226. Call or come by and check us out.

Meals are $3.15 for people 60 and above and $5, including dessert and drink, for those younger than 60.
