Peabody senior center

Peabody Senior Center is taking a poll to find out if there are any bridge players out there that would be interested in meeting for games and fun. We used to have a bridge party with a number of regulars, but it has not met in a couple of years and we thought that might be the “missing link” for some of you. If you are interested give us a call or come by the center at 106 Walnut in Peabody.

We have another great week planned.

Janet Blue of Marion is going to entertain us with singing May 19. Friday, May 20th Florence will be hosting the monthly County Board Meeting May 20 and those planning to attend, call Nellie Schmidt or Judy Mellott for details and transportation.

Anyone may attend whether or not they are a board member.

The monthly Wii Bowling Tournament will follow lunch May 23. It’s a great way to experience fun, friendship, and exercise.

We are always looking for new seniors to come and eat with us.

For those age 60 years and older, the cost for a balanced meal at 11:45 a.m. Monday through Friday is $2.75. Those under 60 are also invited with the meal cost at $4.50.

Many people come down early to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea and visit with friends and neighbors or practicing Wii bowling.

Come join us by just making your reservation the night before by calling 620-983-2226 and leaving a message on the answering machine. Arlene or myself are there from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday.
