The tables and placemats were decorated by Barbara Abbott and there was one stray Valentine placemat filling in.

People have asked about Rowena Olsen’s poodle. Honey is now being enjoyed and loved by residents of Sterling House, an assisted living facility in McPherson.

Residents of Hilltop Manor joined us for lunch April 27. We all enjoyed Janet Blue’s vocal music program.

Kathy Goentzel is a new dining room volunteer. Her first day was when we have over 60 people eating here, so she had an interesting learning experience.

Come join us May 11. There will be a presentation by St. Luke Hospital staff.

Peabody senior center

May is shaping up to be a very busy month here at Peabody Senior Center and we are all excited about the upcoming events. Not all are set in stone yet, but we will announce them in plenty of time for you to mark your calendars and come join us.

On the first Thursday of May each year is National Day of Prayer. This year it is May 5 and it will once again be held here at the senior center.

If you would like to join us for lunch, call the evening before so we can have an accurate number to serve, but if you forget you can still call before 9 a.m. the day of.

The service will begin at 12:15 p.m. Those planning to attend do not have to eat a meal, but we would enjoy having you.

Bingo is May 10 and anyone planning to come is asked to bring a sweet treat to add to the prize basket. We are actually getting some new players, so come join us for some time with friends and “mind strengthening” exercise.

Also during the month we will have our birthday celebration, Wii bowling tournament, holiday brunch, and hopefully a pizza night. We will keep you posted on upcoming events as the details are finalized.

May’s menus are available at 106 N Walnut and we encourage everyone to stop by and pick one up. Call 620-983-2226 to reserve a meal. If we are not there just leave a message on the machine.

Anyone 60 or older can eat a hot balanced meal for a suggested donation of $2.75. For those younger than 60, the cost is $4.50. Midday meal reservations should be made by calling the center the evening before at 620-983-2226. We look forward to serving you.
