Senior Scribbles (Sept. 14, 2011)


hillsboro senior center

During these cooler days, why not stop by and have a cup of coffee at the center or come have a meal with us?

We have plenty of fellowship and lots of stories to tell.

Activities this week include footcare with Mary McFadden on Sept. 14.

Nancy Pihl, K-State Extension Office, will be here at 12:30 p.m. Sept. 15 to talk about useful gadgets around the house.

In addition to the weekday events, everyone is invited to enjoy a German meal at the senior center Sept. 17 during the annual Arts & Crafts Fair. For those unable to eat inside, meals will be available for take-out. This is a fundraising event for the center.

Anyone planning to attend is asked to enter through the alley to access the parking lot.

A signup sheet for those interested in getting a flu shot from the Marion County Health Department is available at the center.

Thank you to all the board members for their hard work and the ideas they come up with for keeping the center going.

Our gratitude also to the volunteers who help with fundraising events.

The center is looking for exercise equipment that someone might consider donating. If you have some equipment, call us.

The cost of meals for those ages 59 and under is $4.50 and those over age 60 is $2.75.

For more information, or if you have exercise equipment you are willing to donate, call 620-947-2304 before 9 a.m. the day of the meal. We are located at 212 N. Main St.

Marion senior center

We had a short week due to closing for Labor Day. We’ve also struggled to remember exactly what day of the week it is since then.

The center used the special placemats Barbara Abbott made Sept. 6 on “Read a Book Day.”

The placemats had cutouts of red apples with A+ on them, the only A+ many of us have ever received.

Lenora Graham, a meal delivererer from Florence, brought treats Sept. 7 to celebrate her 91st birthday. Also on Sept. 7, Merle Ecklund provided accordion music for us.

Make plans now to attend the annual meeting of the Marion County Senior Citizens at the senior center Oct. 20. The meal is $5 and reservations are required.

Come join us for Senior Center Day Sept. 21. Marion County Department on Aging Coordinator Gayla Ratzlaff will present information on prescription drug programs available.

For more information on programs or to make a lunch reservation, call 620-382-2942 by 9 a.m. the day of the meal or stop by the center, 309 S. Third St.
