People continue to bring in their flowers to share?peonies, iris and roses. Flowers seem to be extra bright and beautiful this spring.

We welcomed residents of Marion Assisted Living who came to eat with us May 1. We had 64 people eating here that day.

Carlson?s Grocery Store donated some cookies this week. We mostly have fruit for dessert so an extra cookie is appreciated.

Our penny jar got full and taken to the bank to be counted. There was $44.87 in the jar and Wanda Hamm guessed $45.65 to win. There?s no real prize except the satisfaction of winning.

Keith Allison played the piano for us May 2, playing by ear many familiar songs.

Senior Center Day is May 16. Gayla Ratzlaff, Marion County Department on Aging coordinator, will bring up to date information on pertinent issues.

Happy Mother?s Day to all the mothers on Sunday. Please take a few minutes to thank your mother, wife, daughters, daughters-in-law, and every other mother you know for the love that they display or displayed in your life and that of their children.

It is such an honor to be a mother, but also a tremendous responsibility, so it is nice when someone acknowledges the efforts put into that privilege.

The May birthday dinner is Thursday, so if your birthday is in May come join us for a delicious chicken dinner, and if it’s not your birthday month then come help the others celebrate theirs.

We are also going to have Dan D?Albini with Marion County to speak to us about disaster and the responses to it. We think this will be a very interesting and an informative presentation. We also have free blood pressure checks at 11 a.m. provided by the Peabody Care Center before the birthday dinner.

Our local board meeting is at 9:30 a.m. Monday. Everyone is welcome to be present.

The monthly business meeting is May 15 after lunch. Along with it, we will also have Carrie Truax presenting a wonderful story of life in Indonesia. She, husband, Jim, and their family were missionaries to Indonesia for many years and have wonderful experiences to share.

Spring is here, with a taste of summer already showing up, and we know it is wonderful to be out in the yard working and cleaning flower beds and planting gardens, but you still have to eat, so make your reservations and come down at 11:45 a.m. and relax a little before you go back to work.

Please make reservations the day before at 620-983-2226.
