Peabody senior center

I must admit I?m pleased to find out that people actually read my scribbles because it was pointed out that our ?July? menu was out. Egg on my face.

The funniest part was that Judy Mellott, who always sets up our menus on the computer and brings the original in for our distribution, was on vacation last week. Only now are we able to distribute the June menus. Guess it never pays to ?jump the gun.?

Nevertheless, June menus are ready to be picked up. July menus will be out at a later date.

We hope everyone had a pleasant and meaningful Memorial Day.

We started the Memorial weekend off with our traditional brunch and it was well attended. Hopefully you shared in the wonderful food and fellowship with us.

June is shaping up to be a good month full of delicious food and interesting informational talks and fun activities.

?Dinner with the Doctor? will is Tuesday, June 4, and on Thursday, June 6, we will have a new activity called ?Poem in Your Pocket.?

Just write a poem or bring a favorite poem to lunch and we will recite or read them. Sounds like it will be an interesting event.

Mark your calendar for Saturday, June 1, for our biscuit and sausage gravy fundraiser to help the senior center with plumbing expenses.

We will be serving biscuits and gravy and cinnamon rolls from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. Anyone who would like to volunteer or donate supplies, please call.

Our birthday dinner for June is June 12. For those with a birthday in June birthday, plan to come celebrate with us. Of course everyone else is invited to help celebrate, too.

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.
