Senior Scribbles (May 16, 2012)


hillsboro senior center

Our business meeting is at noon on Wednesday and May 23, Haris Zafar of Wichita will provide hearing aid checks.

The center is closed Monday, May 28, in honor of Memorial Day.

The need for volunteers continues and anyone who helps will get a free meal that day.

Also, please come and join us for a meal. Everyone is welcome no matter what their age. Meals are $2.75 for those 60 and older and $4.50 for anyone 59 and younger. It’s a great price for a meal and, with school almost out, the whole family can come.

The coffee pot is on by 8 a.m. and we would like to see you here.

For more information on volunteering, programs, appointments or other center activities, call 620-947-2304. We are located at 212 N. Main St.
