Senior Scribbles (September 6, 2017)

hillsboro senior center

We hope everyone had a safe and happy Labor Day weekend.

Volunteers are still needed at the center from 11 a.m. to 1:15 p.m.

For those interested in delivering food, we are also needing volunteers for the Meals on Wheels program too. Volunteers will get their meal free the day they work.

Another area help is needed is in the kitchen with a substitute cook to fill in when the regular cook is not working.

We are serving a meal at the annual Arts and Crafts Fair, Saturday, Sept. 16. This is a fundraiser for the center.

The center’s men are looking for more pool players from 2-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

For those who enjoy the game and want to play should let the other players know. There haven’t been enough players, so the group hasn’t been able to play a lot.

We want to thank everyone for supporting our senior center.

For more information, call 620-947-2304, or stop by 212 N. Main St., Hillsboro, KS 67063.

Marion senior center

We’re receiving the last of summer’s bounty in the form of tomatoes and cucumbers. We appreciate gardeners thinking of us.

We need a Meals on Wheels driver to deliver one day a week. It’s a great volunteer opportunity to take meals and a friendly greeting to people. Call or come in if interested.

Our program Aug. 30 was pianist Lydia Gates. Her friend, Margaret Wilson, announced each selection.

Join us Sept. 13 when the program will be given by Theresa Ross, cardiac nurse at St. Luke Hospital.
