We hope everyone had a Happy Mother’s Day and got to see some of their children.

Our center wants to honor our mothers the rest of this month by bringing in pictures of them for display.

Looking at the book that Phoebe Janzen wrote and published, we thought it would be fun to see pictures of our mothers. We just started this week so we are looking forward to seeing how many we will get. So far we have 50th Anniversary pictures; a photo of a mother on her wedding day; a mother in her 80s and some from 1941. A lot of us here at the center have lost our parents, which gives a chance to cherish times gone by.

We had a nice crowd to celebrate Birthday dinner on May 10. Sonja Koslowsky entertained us with piano music.

Our Board meeting is be was May 15; Dinner with the Doctor, featuring Randolph Whitely, local physician, is . May 17; the SCMC meeting is May 19; May 23 is the business meeting and on May 24 Myrta Billings, program assistant with the Marion County Extension Office is sharing different topics with us.

We are closed Monday, May 29 for Memorial Day. Remember to order frozen meals for the holiday week-end by calling. We can deliver them or they can also be picked up.

Meals are $3.50 for age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and younger. For more information call 620-983-2226. For those who can’t come in, call and we will deliver.
