Spring really will be here March 20. The harsh winter has not helped attendance at any senior center.

We had a nutrition site managers meeting in Peabody March 11. We shared statistics, program ideas and the occasional complaint.

Our March 12 program was presented by Gary and Karen Chaput. They are enthusiastic volunteers from Holy Family Parish at the Lord?s Diner in Wichita. There might be another group formed in Marion.

The Theo and Alfred M. Landon Center on Aging at the University of Kansas Medical Center is having its annual photo contest called, ?Images of Aging.?

The contest is open to amateur and professional photographers, and at least one person (in the photographs) must be 65 years or older. The idea is to bring attention to the many faces of older adults.

First place is $350. The contest runs from April 15 to May 15.

Come join us March 26. After lunch, officer Mike Stone will bring his K-9 partner, Legion, to demonstrate his abilities.

For more information or lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 309 S. Third St.
