This week we will have our board meeting. We are also going to be nominating new people to serve on our board during the noon meal Oct. 3 and encourage those who can to attend.

We want to thank everyone who supports our center.

It?s a great deal for a very good meal.

Peabody senior center

Today starts out with an “oops” as I realized that last week I put incorrect dates in the newspaper for the starting of peppernut baking season at our senior center.

The correct dates are starting Oct. 8 after the noon meal and continuing each Monday and Thursday until Nov. 12.

With that timeframe we will be able to complete it before the Thanksgiving holidays. If anything unforeseen happens we will have time for makeup days before Thanksgiving also. My apologies and I hope no one will have conflicts because of the error.

The October menus are out and we invite you to come by and pick up the October menu if you haven?t already done so.

We do have a new dietician and will have some new items being served. We hope you will enjoy the changes.

Birthday dinner will be Tuesday, Oct. 9, so get your reservations in as quickly as possible. This is always a delicious meal.

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