Senior Scribbles (Oct. 17, 2012)


hillsboro senior center

The business meeting is scheduled for noon Wednesday, Oct. 17. Future meetings are on the third Wednesday of the month.

Haris Zafar will also be here that day at 11 a.m. providing hearing aid checks.

The annual meeting of the Marion County senior centers is Oct. 18 and a good turnout is expected. We will also be honoring veterans at the event.

Unfortunately, we aren’t able to take any more reservations for the annual meeting.

The center is grateful for all the hard work our volunteers, kitchen staff, head cook and board members do so that others can enjoy a meal, fellowship and other events.

For those who would like to volunteer, we still need help for lunch and substitute drivers are needed for the Meals on Wheels program.

Everyone is welcome to have lunch with us. The cost is $2.75 for those age 60 and over and $4.50 for those under age 59.

For more information on volunteering or other center activities, call 620-947-2304.

The deadline to make reservations for lunch is 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

We’ve been celebrating special days and special people this week to include the birthdays of LaVaughn Klose and Connie Fisher.

We also celebrated the wedding anniversary of Vern and Arlene Bowers.

We welcome new volunteers—either as meal deliverers or dining room help. Call me and I can tell anyone interested all about it.

We have information about the Images of Aging photo contest sponsored by the University of Kansas Medical Center. The first place prize is $350.

Ron and Connie Shipman gave a delightful musical program Oct. 10. Connie plays the fiddle, Ron plays the guitar and each of them sings.

Come join us Oct. 24. Jill Moore from Schowalter Villa will give a program on “Sharpening the Mind.”

Peppernut baking has begun. Thanks to all the faithful helpers who have started the season with us again. We look forward to others that will be returning as the season progresses.

Baking will continue each Monday and Thursday until the Thanksgiving season. It will be a couple of weeks before any are available for sale, but I will keep you posted.

The business meeting scheduled for Oct 17 has been rescheduled to Oct 24. Please plan to attend.

The Marion County Annual Meeting for Seniors is Oct. 18 in Hillsboro and promises to be a good program honoring county veterans from World War II and the Korean War.

John Topham and Loyd Brewer will represent our center.

Halloween is right around the corner. “The Trunk or Treat on Walnut Street” sounds like a really fun event for the kids and for those of us young-at heart seniors.

Several plan on decorating their trunks and handing out candy for the little ones, so come experience the fun. Who knows, somebody might even win the $100.

Meals have a suggested price of $2.75 for those 60 and over and $4.50 for those 59 and under.

To make a meal reservation, volunteer or to ask a question, call 620-983-2226 or stop by 106 Walnut.

Happy fall.
