Peabody senior center

Labor Day has come and gone and somehow, as it always seems to happens, September has ushered in weather more favorable to end of summer yard work, football games, and all the things surrounding the fall season. Probably everyone is welcoming the cooler weather after the record breaking summer we have experienced.

We at the Peabody Senior Center are also gearing up for the fall season. In the fall we begin our biggest fund raiser of the year—the baking of peppernuts. Everyone gets excited about this time as we start readying for the project. It’s a lot of work and requires lots of volunteers from the community, but along with the hard work comes a lot of fun and friendship.

Our first date will be Oct. 10 starting right after lunch and we will continue each Monday and Thursday until Nov. 17.

Hopefully you will be able to come join us on one or more days during this project. We can always find something for you to help with.

We will be celebrating our monthly birthday dinner honoring those with a September birthday Thursday, Sept. 8.

If we have not contacted you to see if you will be attending, call us and make your reservation.

Rudy Newfield will also be entertaining and educating us with his expertise on harmonicas. We think you will really enjoy this program so make plans to attend.

The monthly board meeting is at 9:30 a.m. Sept. 12. Everyone is invited to attend.

Our nutritional site is now cooking for the Gossel Agape Senior Center and their volunteer is driving over to pick up the meals and taking them back to their site for the mid-day meal. This has put considerable more work in our kitchen and we are in great need for more volunteers.

Check you schedule and see if you could possibly volunteer about two or three hours one day a week. It is very rewarding and all the media is now proclaiming that it is good for both our mental and physical health when we volunteer. Come let us help you stay healthy.

Remember to make your reservations the day before you plan on eating by calling 620-983-2226 and leaving a message on our recorder so we will be sure and include you for the meal. Menus are available at the center 106 Walnut.
