We want to thank everyone who came to our fundraiser Saturday and braved the crowd.

We will have a board business meeting Tuesday Sept. 19 over lunch. On Wednesday, Sept. 20, audiologist Haris Zafar will be at the center at 11 a.m. for hearing aid checks and on we will have footcare in the afternoon, so call for an appointment.

We will have sing-a-long after the noon meal on Thursday Sept. 21. Autumn begins Friday Sept. 22, so let’s pray for cooler temperatures.

We are still needing volunteers at the center, so call for more information. Also we are taking application for a head cook as our cook will retire Oct. 31. Call the center for more info at 947-2304.

We will have our birthday dinner on Monday Sept. 25 for the September birthdays. Call for more information. We thank you all for your support to our senor center.

We also are looking at programs to present, so let us know if you have one you would like to share with us. Get a free meal the day you present it. Thank-you everyone for supporting our senior center.

We start right making and baking right after the lunch crew is done. So we will need all you volunteers that can come. Sign up, come in and have a meal and stay a little while. Lots of hands make quick work.

We are hanging up a display of different aprons, thanks to Mary Olson, starting Mon. Sept. 18. So we are asking all of our friends to show us their aprons by wearing them when they come to dine or just show off. Can’t wait to see yours.

We welcomed seven diners from Peabody Health and Rehab Sept. 15. Dinner with physician Randolph Whitely is Sept. 20. Hope to have something yet this month about healing oils and want your input about what you would like to try. Some oils are good for headaches, relaxing or cramps. Rachel Gfeller would like a list of what your desires are, and she will pick a day to come discuss what oils you can try.

We look forward to seeing you, come have a meal with us. Meals are $3.50 for age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and younger. For more information, call 620-983-2226, or stop by the center at 106 N. Walnut.
