Senior Scribbles (November 1, 2017)

hillsboro senior center

We are still needing a head cook. If interested, please stop by and pick up an application. More information is available at the senior center.

In addition to needing a cook, we also have volunteer positions open from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m. Anyone who works will get their meal free the day they work.

We are short of people and could really use help.

During the week we have activities that are fun for just about everyone. On Mondays, we have games and fellowship. Wednesdays we play bingo after lunch and Thursday, Nov. 2, Dawn Miller from Angel Home Care will be here.

Don’t forget that Sunday, Nov 5, daylight saving time ends. Be sure to “fall” back on time.

The Golden Notes Singers are here Tuesday, Nov. 7, and plan to entertain after lunch. Wednesday, Nov. 8 is chair massages with Barbara. If interested, call for more information.

We look forward to having people join us soon. We thank everyone for their support, and for those who don’t know, we offer great fellowship.

Please remember anyone at any age can join us at the center for a meal. The suggested donation for 60 and over is $3.50 and 59 and under is $5.25. We hope you will join us soon.

Marion senior center

I want to publicly thank Norma Kline for helping me do assessments at our big meeting Oct. 19. Between us, we assessed 30 people.

Marlene Bernhardt brought treats for us on her birthday Oct. 23

We had residents from Hilltop Manor, plus Shirley Carlson, who came to eat with us Oct. 25.

Our program was given by Donna Kreutziger. She was entertaining tour guide on the trip to Alaska taken this summer with her husband, Warren.

We would like another Meals on Wheels driver, mostly as a substitute. Come in and talk to me about it.

Come join us Nov. 8. There will be a program by an area home health agency.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

Hope everyone had a good Happy Halloween. Our seniors participated in Trunk & Treat, in downtown Peabody.

Main Street is blocked off at one end with a huge fire­truck, ambulances, and other vehicles, at the other end of the street.

Many businesses and others take part displaying decorated trunks and some are even in costumes. It’s a lot of fun for children and those passing out candy.

We are still baking peppernuts. We bake after 12:30 p.m. Mondays and Thursdays.

Our last day to bake is Nov. 13, and we are having a cookie party afterwards.

Thanks go out to the volunteers for all the time they have put in. Baking and selling these peppernuts helps us keep the center open. Again, our thanks.

Randolph Whitely, physician, will be here Wednesday, Nov. 8. Rachel Gfeller is offering chair massages in the morning.

If you have a birthday in November, let us know.

The center board meeting is Monday, Nov. 13, and Grief Share is from 3-4:30 p.m. with pastor Rick Schrag presenting.

Our make-up meal is Nov. 15, and the menu is homemade cinnamon rolls and chili. Call and make a reservation.

November menus are ready. Remember we are always in need of volunteers so give us a call. Meals are $3.50 for age 60 and older and $5.25 for 59 and under.

For more information, call 620-983-2226, or stop by the center at 106 N. Walnut.
