Senior Scribbles (March 21, 2018)

HILLSBORO senior center

We hope you all are getting used to the time change.

We want to thank everyone for your support for our motorcycle raffle. We made the money we needed to, and Sharon Dies was the winner of the raffle drawing.

We also want to thank everyone who came to our breakfast fundraiser last Saturday as we had a great turn out. We also want to thank the chamber for having their luncheon with us on Tuesday. We enjoyed meeting and seeing everyone. We look forward to doing that more often.

This week we had our business board meeting on Tuesday March 20. We will have show and tell about anything on Friday, March 23.

We hope you will join us soon at the senior center for a meal and great fellowship. We are needing volunteers over lunch. Call if you can help at 947-2304. We also want to invite anyone any age to join us at the center. The suggested donation for 60 and over is $3.50 and 59 and under is $5.25, a great price for a hot meal. We thank everyone for your support to our center.

For more information or to find out about volunteering or program ideas, call 620-947-2304 or stop by 212 N. Main St., Hillsboro.

Anybody who helps gets a meal that day as our way of saying thank you.

—Brenda Moss, director

We invite you to come to our center Friday, March 23, for a special program provided by Clyve and Jane Herbert of Australian Sky & Weather, from Australia and Hillsboro. They are storm chasers and come to Kansas each year to take photos of our storms an,d with a little luck, a tornado or two.
