We?ve celebrated spring flowers, piano music, mothers and doing for others this past week.

Gary and Karen Chaput got commodities in Council Grove and found an eager crew waiting. Jerry Kline, his friend from Ethiopia, Caleb Abbott and Harold Triggs helped unload.

Shirley Moore, Sue Clough, Clayton and Wanda Hamm boxed everything up to be distributed. We still have commodities available.

We talked about real mothers on May 10, compared to those on television, and heard some ?momisms,? things all moms tell their children.

Then we sang, ?M is for the Million Things She Gave Me.?

Shirley Bowers brought in a vase of iris to share with us. She also played the piano for us.

Senior Center Day was May 15. Sue Clough conducted the business meeting before lunch. Then Shirley Bowers and Kay Lindsey played piano duet music. American Legion representatives Dick Varenhorst and Gary and Karen Chaput gave a presentation on that group?s programs and projects.

It was also Jean Bailey?s birthday and she brought treats.

Come join us May 29. Our program will be given by Robert Clark of Schowalter Villa. He plays the piano by ear, doing music of the 20s, 30s and 40s.

We are closed May 27 for Memorial Day.

May is moving by very quickly. People are so busy with their yards, graduations, family and friends making it a delightful time of the year.

Hope everyone is enjoying the beautiful weather.

Don’t forget to sign up to come down at 9:30 a.m. Friday, May 24, for the annual Memorial Day weekend brunch.

We all enjoy getting together early for Kim?s wonderful breakfast casserole and cinnamon rolls or coffee cake, and fruit.

It gets the long weekend started early so everyone can go about their week end plans.

We will be closed Monday, May 27, in observance of Memorial Day.

Frozen meals will be available. Just contact the center so we can deliver them on May 23.

Please note that the pork cutlet that was on the menu for Thursday, May 30, has been changed to a ham slice. We are sorry for the change but availability was an issue.

Our July menus are now available so please come by and pick one up. It?s a good way to decide which meals to come and share with us. We have a good month planned with lots of activities to participate in also. We would love to see you.

We serve balanced meals each weekday at 11:45 a.m. for a cost of $3.15 for those 60 and older or $5 for others. Either way, it is a value.

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