Senior Scribbles (Mar. 27, 2013)


It?s the last week of March and we are ready for April and warmer weather.

We won?t even mind the April showers. We will have our Easter dinner on Wednesday, March 27, but no more reservations can be taken. Anyone who would like to pick up their meal, though, can do so by giving us a call.

As a special day, we are asking others to wear their Easter hats on Friday, March 29.

We also hope everyone has a Happy Easter on Sunday.

April menus are available this week and can be picked up at the center.

Remember we are having a breakfast fundraiser from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 6, at the center. Please come and join us.

We want to thank everyone who supports our center.

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.

Volunteers are needed and if others can help, please call the center at 620-947-2304.

For more information about volunteering, appointments or making lunch reservations, call 620-947-2304.

We have a new plant in our entryway given to us by Ampride. It is a very large philodendron from which cuttings may be taken.

Our commodities crew were very efficient March 14. Clayton Hamm went to Council Grove to pick up commodities and was first in line.

Jerry Kline, Gene Winkler, Mark Brown and Wanda Hamm helped unload. Shirley Moore and Sue Clough did most of the sacking. Virginia Hammond happened in and helped by putting plastic bags together in twos.

Evelyn Jewett experienced two days of birthday treats when friends from Lindsborg and McPherson came on March 15 with mini cupcakes. Evelyn provided ice cream cups March 18 and a friendly leprechaun made cookies.

Connie Fisher led us in singing, ?When Irish Eyes Are Smiling,? on St. Patrick?s Day.

We missed Barbie?s birthday March 9, but heard about middle age versions we might see: Bifocal Barbie and Wrinkle-Free Barbie included.

We enjoyed hearing piano students on Senior Center Day by Wanda Williams. Join us April 3 for 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.

Wednesday will be our final Lenten Service and Larry Timm with Gracepoint will lead us with the devotion.

We want to thank everyone who has taken time to lead in these devotionals each week. They have been inspiring and helped lead us up to the Resurrection celebration.

We will be having our Good Friday brunch at 9:30 a.m. March 29. Be sure to make your reservations early so Kim Nellans, our head cook, will be able to make her delicious breakfast feast and have enough for everyone.

Birthday dinner for April will be April 9 and we will have an interesting program on advance directives. This is an important topic and one we should all be informed about.

The center received a check from the Peabody Community Foundation for new tires on our van. We use this van daily to deliver the meals for the ?Meals on Wheels? program. The old tires were getting pretty worn.

We were very grateful to receive this gift and want everyone to know we were a recipient. The foundation does a wonderful job of dispersing grant monies to organizations with special needs and the community is fortunate to have this benefit available.

Our new menus were available Monday, so stop by and pick up a copy.

If you need to make a reservation call us.

We need reservations made the night before someone plans to eat so there is ample food prepared.

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.

We look forward to seeing you.
