Senior Scribbles (Sept 28, 2016)

hillsboro senior center

We hope you enjoyed September as we now head into October. Consider making a change with this new month and have a great meal with us soon. Or maybe volunteer to be a Meals on Wheels driver.

We will have angel care home health here Tuesday, Oct. 4, and chair massages Wednesday, Oct. 5. We also have games and fellowship every Monday after the noon meal. On Wednesday after the noon meal we play bingo.

We are also looking for program ideas, so call the center at 947-2304 for more information. We want to thank everyone who help support our center.

We need more donations coming in to keep it going, so please if you can help, we would be grateful. Our center is run on donations only, and it takes a lot to keep it going. If there businesses that can help, let us know as we can give receipts for your donation to our center.

I would like to thank our board members for all they do to keep our center going.

Anyone any age can eat our center. The suggested donation for age 60 and over is $3.50. Under age 59 and under is $5.25 for a great hot meal, so come give us a try soon.

— Brenda Moss director

Welcome Fall—we made it this far. It’s always a beautiful time of year. We hope you have had a great week!

We managed to work in a massage. Some of our seniors were also able to attend the Sunflower Fair in Salina. Then we had Dinner with the Doctor. We are so grateful for physician Randolph Whitely and his office for giving us their time and taking time to have a question and answer session. The information passed on to us was Check for Safety, which is a home fall prevention checklist for older adults.

At Grandparents Day with your grandchild, they served a nice lunch and then we made a turkey decoration. Thank you, Peabody Elementary School.
