Senior Scribbles (May 2, 2018)

HILLSBORO senior center

Here it is May, and how quickly times goes by.

We are needing volunteers to help at the center, and with summer vacation almost here for our school age youth, maybe some might want to help.

The only requirement is that students be at least 14 or older. If interested, stop by and pick up an application or call us.

The center is having its make-up meal at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 5.

The menu will include scrambled eggs with ham and cheese blueberry pancakes hashbrowns, milk and orange juice.

Please let us know if you would like to be included in this make-up meal.

Meal tickets can be used for the make-up meal.

A reminder that anyone any age can come eat at the center. The suggested donation is 60 and over $3.50 and 59 and under $5.25. It’s a great price for a great hot meal. For more information, call 620-947-2304 or stop by 212 N. Main St.

Marion senior center

We continued honoring volunteers with Gayla Ratzlaff and Lanell Hett of Department on Aging recognizing the newsletter crew and those who do transportation. They had a party on April 23. Sue Clough has honored two special volunteers during the week—Jerry Kline and Larry Blosser.

Thank you to Margaret Hett for making walker bags to give away.

Harlow’s Grilled Hamburger Day was April 25, and we had a big crowd. The group from the Lutheran church came as did residents from Hilltop Manor. Gayla Ratzlaff gave the program.

Earlier in the day the commodities were delivered and boxed up for distribution. Those helping were Sue Clough, Gene and Doris Winkler, Bob Crawford and Teresa Eads.

Come join us on May 9 for the second session of Myrta Billings “Eat Smart, Live Strong” series.
