Marion senior center

We had a big crowd in here Sept. 28 when the Kansas Department of Transportation rented the center for its annual afternoon of insurance presentation for their decision- making.

Our program on Sept. 29 was given by staff of SafeHope. They now have an office in Marion and provide services for victims of domestic violence and sexual assault.

We welcomed the Monday Lunch Bunch with its largest group ever. Fourteen old friends and classmates enjoyed visiting and eating lunch with us.

Our program Oct. 4 was by Randolph Whitely, local physician, who talked about falls and how to prevent them.

This was his first presentation here and we want him back.

There is no program on Oct. 18 because we will be setting up for the annual meeting Oct. 19.

For more information, call 620-382-2942 or stop by at 309 S. Third St., Marion.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

Welcome rain—need I say more. It’s a new month, and we are keeping ourselves busy in making peppernuts and seeing our friends.

We are looking for input from others about starting a painting class, but before we can go forward we need at least four people signed up,

The class could be from 10-11 a.m. once a week or every other week at a cost of $10 for the instructor and possibly an evening class.

Day classes could be once a week or every other week with a cost of $10 for instructor or if she provides supplies it would cost about $25.

An interest has already been expressed for an evening class. What do you think?

No decisions will be made until more input is received, but a program is planned to get everyone acquainted with the art instructor and what to expect from this class.

Our monthly birthday dinner, and also chair massages by Rachel Gfeller are both Oct. 11.

This month’s board meeting is Monday, Oct. 16, and dinner with Randolph Whitely is Oct. 18.

Everyone is invited to the 57th annual meeting starting at 11 a.m. Thursday, Oct. 19, at the Marion Senior Center. The cost is $5.25. We look forward to seeing you, so come have a meal with us.
