Marion Senior Center

We observed Patriot Day on Sept. 11 beginning with the Pledge of Allegiance to the flag, and then had a moment of silence.

We received greetings from Edgard Pots in Belgium thanking Americans for fighting for freedom and sending remembrance of 9/11.

This gentleman corresponds with Joan Meyer. We read ?The Firefighters Prayer,? and sang ?God Bless America.?

Senior Center Day was Sept. 17. Sue Clough conducted the business meeting. There was election of officers to include Clough, president; Rhonda Brenzikofer, vice president; secretary Joyce Jackson, and Norma Kline, treasurer.

The program was given by Rita Done, who moved to Marion recently.

She does sewing and alterations for people.

Come join us Wednesday, Oct. 1. The program after lunch will be given by Sharon Simons, transition coordinator at Parkside Homes in Hillsboro.

She will talk with us about dental care.

Lunch with the Doctor is Oct. 17 and will feature Randolph Whitely discussing pertinent information seniors will want to know.

We will have our final event of the month on Thursday, Sept. 25 when we will play Bingo after lunch. Bring a couple small candy bars and play a few cards with us.
