hillsboro senior center

Esther Funk is playing the piano every Wednesday and Friday at the center and we all enjoy her music.

Show and Tell is scheduled Oct. 14 and everyone planning to attend is asked to bring something to share.

Next week, Haris Zafar of Wichita, who practices hearing and speech therapy, will be here at 11 a.m. Oct. 19. Also on that day is a business meeting during lunch and others are encouraged to join in this fellowship.

A community breakfast is planned from 7 a.m. to noon Oct. 22. Tickets are $5 per person or $6 at the door. The menu will include pancakes, bacon, scrambled eggs, juice, coffee and milk. It?s a great deal and hope everyone will consider this event.

Flu shots will be given from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Oct. 14 at the center. For those who like to volunteer, we are still looking for more help from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

I would like to thank all our volunteers who help each week, Meals On Wheels drivers and the staff.

In addition, thanks to our board members and personally Pat Nuss, head cook, for her cooking and wonderful ideas.

The cost of meals for those age 59 and under is $4.50 and those over age 60 is $2.75. For those unable to eat lunch with us, meals are available for pick up.

A pool tournament was held here last Thursday between Goessel and Hillsboro pool players and they had a good time.

Peabody senior center

Well the busy week I promised is now in full swing. We have peppernuts, peppernuts and more peppernuts already in our dreams.

We are really off to a great start and invite others to come join us for lunch on Monday and Thursday and stay after to help with baking these delightful little treats.

For those who cannot make the midday meal, they are still welcome to come down and help bake. We have enough jobs for everyone to participate. Just remember if you are coming for lunch to reserve your meal the day before so Kim, our cook, can prepare enough food.

We bid a sad farewell to Arlene Unruh who has decided to retire before the snows fly this winter. She has given us 15 years of faithful service and we so appreciate her, but fear not she is not totally leaving us. She will still be around to lend her expertise and friendship. We wish her well and fully understand the amount of snow that Kansas can accumulate. Thanks for a job well done, Arlene.

Come join us but remember to make your reservations at least the day before you plan to eat with us. Lunch is at 11:45 a.m.

The number is 620-983-2226 and the address is 106 N Walnut.

Hope to see you soon.
