September has been a good month at Marion Senior Center. We especially enjoyed having people come in who were back from Old Settlers? Day.

Now on to October.

The center will be hosting the annual meeting of Marion County senior citizens Oct. 21 and an Area Agency on Aging ?Answers for Older Kansans? workshop Oct. 28.

Norine Holtsclaw celebrated her birthday with us Sept. 23. We also sang to Val Morgan, whose birthday was earlier in the month.

The newsletter crew came in Sept. 27 to prepare the pages for mailing. They included Ivanlee Timm, Nora Richter, Beulah and Darrell Weigart, Jane Makovec, Harvey Wells, Ernie Lespag?nard, Evelyn Jewett, Norma Woerz, Gayla Ratzlaff and Lanell Hett.

We were told that those who shop at Carlson?s Grocery and earn points may transfer them to the Marion County Emer?gency Food Bank. That?s a great idea.
