We will have Bingo March 28 following lunch.

Palm Sunday is April 1 and on April 3 at noon is the center?s Easter dinner. All those planning to attend are asked to reserve their meal as soon as possible.

Peabody senior center

Spring is here and Sunday afternoon while driving I noticed all the wonders of the season with the flowers blooming, the birds singing, the trees budding and the lawn mowers mowing.

We are continuing with our Lenten services each Wednesday after lunch for the next two weeks. This week, Jim Truax, a local missionary to Indonesia, is speaking and on our final service April 4, Pastor Robert Kloth of the Luthern Church has the service. These are most inspiring devotional times that we have shared and I think everyone has really enjoyed them.

The Wii bowling tournament for March will be Thursday.

Come join us. No talent or skill is needed. It?s a time to spend with friends, get some exercise and get out of some housework.

April menus are available and we encourage you to pick one up and visit us for lunch.

If you have not come to lunch with us in the past, or if you’ve just been away for awhile, come back and have lunch with your friends again.

If you have some time on your hands and would like to volunteer it will help us out, but it will also help you, too. Studies show that people who volunteer are healthier and happier.

Remember to reserve your meals the day before you plan to eat. Meals are served each week day at 11:45 a.m. at a suggested donation of $2.75 for those 60 and above and $4.50 for those 59 and under.

We are located at 106 N. Walnut or call 620-983-2226. If you call after hours we have an answering machine that will pick up and you can make your reservation that way.
