Marion senior center

What a roller coaster ride Kansas weather is taking us on. I understand we are healthier when we have different seasons.

We celebrated St. Patrick’s Day with much wearing of the green. We had special placemats made by Barbara Abbott and did an action story about the legend of St. Patrick.

Our cake and topping were tinted green and we explained that to our home delivery folks so they wouldn’t be alarmed.

It was also Evelyn Jewett’s birthday and she provided ice cream.

Beulah Weigart brought in the first daffodils and later on Shirley Bowers brought in more.

We had a half-price sale March 21 on all items on the craft corner counter.

Amy Kjellin talked to us about free class day April 2 at Butler in Marion. A number of people signed up for sessions.

Vivian Conyers reported receiving a phone call asking for bank numbers and other personal information. She knew better than to give this out having been well trained at the senior center.

Come join us April 6 for a presentation by Harry Hynes Memorial Hospice.

For more information on programs or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal or stop by the center, 309 S. Third St.
