We will play Bingo after lunch Wednesday, Nov. 13, and on Nov. 14, Natise Vogt, Walton Rural Life Center principal, will speak.

Sign-up for the center?s Thanksgiving meal is Nov. 13. The meal is scheduled for noon Nov. 21.

Anyone planning to have a Thanksgiving meal delivered or picked up is asked to call ahead.

We need to order food ahead of time.

The center is also planning a soup and chili fundraiser from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. Dec. 7. The center will be with the Chamber of Commerce?s Down Home Christmas event. Stop by for a great meal, some music and we will even have booths set up for your Christmas shopping . We hope you can join the fun.

The suggested meal donation for people 60 and over is $3.15 and those under 59 is $5.

We are located at 212 N. Main St., or call 620-947-2304.

Marion Senior Center

We celebrated Halloween by singing Halloween carols. The cooks and I wore costumes. Barb Bitner was really creative. She blackened one eye and had the letter ?P? on the back of her dress. Who was she?

Bob Peterson celebrated his birthday Nov. 4 with a cake baked by Mary Hett.

Sue Clough tried the recipe for apple butterscotch cake found in the ?Rural Messenger,? which comes in every week. We challenge others to try the recipe in each issue.

Leland Albrecht brought in a huge box of chocolates for his birthday Nov. 5. Figuring out which one to choose without poking them was fascinating.

Our program Nov. 6 was given by Frank and Linda White on the ?Joy of Bluegrass.? They played recorded examples of different performers and styles.

Come join us Nov. 20 for Senior Center Day. Mark Wilcox will talk about his prize-winning violins.

We celebrate Mickey Mouse?s birthday Nov. 18.

Peabody Senior Center

The Peabody Community Foundation is hosting a get-together Wednesday, Nov. 14, at the Prescott House, 501 Sycamore St.

We appreciate the foundation because they have supported the senior center numerous times in the past. Last year, the foundation purchased new tires for the delivery van. We hope everyone will support them in return for their kindness.

Commodities will be distributed from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14.

We will bag the commodities when they arrive. Anyone who would like to volunteer their time will be appreciated.

The Marion County monthly board meeting at our center is Friday, Nov. 15.

This is a very informative meeting, and people enjoy meeting with other seniors. We encourage those interested to make their reservations early.

The annual Thanksgiving dinner for the senior center is also Nov. 15.

Our monthly business meeting is Tuesday, Nov. 19, after the noon meal.

We have a lot of people who pick up their noon meals, which we hope is convenient. The prices are the same whether eating at the center or doing carry-out.

For those age 60 and older, the cost is $3.15. Anyone who is under age 60, the cost is $5.

These are delicious meals. Our menus are available at the center or in the weekly newspaper below this article.

Volunteers are needed on Fridays. If someone could work in the kitchen or help deliver meals, we would appreciate the help.

Give us a call or come by if you are available.

Stay warm and have a wonderful week.

For more information, to volunteer or to make lunch reservations, call 620-983-2226 or stop by 106 N. Walnut.
