We sang a belated happy birthday to Ron Wright, one of our dining room volunteers.

Peabody Senior Center

August is gone, and already fall is in full swing with warm days, somewhat cooler evenings, school, football games and cross country.

We are excited at Peabody Senior Center with plans for an increase in numbers with the coming of fall.

An anonymous donor has suggested a plan to help boost attendance and we are hoping it will encourage people to ?give us a try.?

For any regular attendee that brings a local area guest that does not normally come to the center for lunch, we will provide a meal ticket for both the ?regular? and the ?guest.?

The guest must be from the Peabody area and 60 years or older to qualify and who has not eaten at the center before or in the past year.

Also for those 60 years and older, and who have never eaten at the center, but would like to come and try our meals and company, call and make a reservation.

We will also furnish you with a meal ticket for a free meal.

Hopefully this plan of action will peak the interest of some people who have thought about joining us for lunch but just haven’t done so yet.

We thank the anonymous donor also for this ingenious plan. Sounds good to us, and we would love to grow by their efforts to help us.

Meals at the center are $3.15 for those 60 and above and only $5 for anyone that has not yet reached 60.

This is a very good bargain for everyone. We have delicious well-balanced meals available to all just by making a phone reservation the day before.

Reservations can be made by calling 620-983-2226. For those who call after hours, leave a message on the answering machine and we will mark the reservation when we come in.

On Monday, September 16, We will have a flu clinic on Monday, Sept. 16, sponsored by Marion County.

They will be here at 10:45 a.m. to administer flu vaccinations and will be able to bill Medicare, Blue Cross, or other state insurances.

Also join us at noon Tuesday, Sept. 17, at the Peabody Care Center for a covered dish luncheon.

These are always fun times for everyone.

The care center enjoys the company and we enjoy being able to visit with so many people that we haven’t seen in a while. Please fix your favorite dish and join us.

Bingo will be Thursday, Sept. 19. Grab a couple candy bars and play a few cards with us. Everyone enjoys playing and winning.

Please remember to drop by the Peabody Senior Center and see what all is happening. We are at 106 N. Walnut St.

We would love to see you.
