Senior Scribbles (May 1, 2013)

hillsboro senior center

We would like to thank everyone who came to our fundraising event Thursday. The pulled pork supper was served to more than 120 people with all proceeds benefitting the senior center.

Everyone said they enjoyed the meal and music, provided by Bob Delk and the Boys.

We are also grateful to our senior center?s board of directors for their hard work in making the event so successful.

With the end of April, a new month is starting. We sure hope Old Man Winter is gone as we look forward to warmer days ahead.

Show ?n Tell is Friday, May 3. Everyone is asked to bring their Mother?s Day memories. We are playing Bingo after the noon meal on May 8.

Later in the month, Mary McFadden of Peabody will be having footcare on May 14.

Haris Zafar will be at the center at 11 a.m. May 15 for hearing aid checks.

We hope you can come and enjoy a meal with us soon. May menus can be picked up at the center or by calling.

For those who need a menu mailed, call and we will get one to you.

Come join us for a meal and fellowship. For those who know of someone new to the community or those with a friend or relative that hasn?t been here, please invite them.

The cost is $3.15 for people 60 and older or $5 for those 59 and under.

Marion senior center

We had our first bouquet of flowers brought in April 18. They were grown by Shirley Bowers. It was also ?Poem In Your Pocket Day,? and we had several people who read or recited poems to include Joyce Jackson, Sue Clough, Joan Meyer, Jean Pierce and others.

Jim Osborn ate with us April 19 and then gave a farewell because he?s moving to California.

Following another blast of winter on April 23, Thelma Blosser brought candy to reward everyone who ventured out.

We had two volunteer recognition events April 24. The Marion County Department on Aging honored the newsletter crew and those who drive people out of town in the van.

I recognized the meal delivery drivers, dining room volunteers and daily reservation hostesses. We could not operate without them.

Come join us May 8 for the Answers for Older Kansans workshop speakers.

It?s hard to believe we are already in May.

National Day of Prayer is May 2 and Linda Eden will be leading us in prayer and devotions after the midday meal Thursday.

Plan to eat with us, but those who can?t make it, they are always welcome to come in for the prayer and devotions.

Commodities for May will be here May 9 and, we will package them up after the meal. They will be distributed after lunch May 10 more than likely. Watch the newspaper for further information on that.

We always enjoy having people join us for lunch.

Reservations are needed the day before or after hours by leaving a message on the answering machine.

We are located at 106 N. Walnut in Peabody or call 620-983-2226. Call or come by for additional information, to make a reservation, or volunteer your services.
