Senior Scribbles (Week of January 25, 2017)

Hillsboro senior center

Show and Tell is on Friday, Jan. 27. In addition to our show and tell guest, Patrick Flaming of Newton Medical Center is also speaking on Kansas Day.

February menus are ready. Stop by and pick one up soon, or we can mail it, too. We still need volunteers at the center. If interested, please call. We look forward to hearing from others.

Remember, too, that any one at any age can stop in and join us for a meal. The cost is $5.25 under 60 and $3.50 suggested donation for 60 and over.

These are great prices for a wonderful hot meal. Along with the meal we have fellowship, too. We can use program ideas for our center if anyone knows of someone who might or you want to present one yourself. Either way, let us know because meals are free the day you or your visitor present a program. Thank everyone for their support to our senior center. Please remember to thank all of our wonderful volunteers and the board members. Their hard work is good for all of them.

The suggested meal donation is $3.50 for ages 60 and older, and $5.25 for everyone else. For more information, call 620-947-2304, or stop by 212 N. Main St., Hillsboro.

PEABODY SENIOR CENTER

Looks like we dodged the ice storm and I loved that rainbow.

We had our local board meeting Jan. 17 and massages were available Jan. 18 for anyone here. In addition, our guest speaker, Renae Riedy, gave us a program on “Enhancing Aging, Part 3.”

We hope to get programs completed in February with two more in March. Renae brought informative handouts for everyone to take home.

We had “Dinner with the Doc” Jan. 20, featuring Ran­dolph Whitely, a physician in Peabody. He introduced Tom Nelson, who will be working with him for a year.

Next week will be a quiet one because we are planning and gathering little extras to start a project the first part of February.

Valentines Day is coming; volunteers will make valentines for residents at Pea­body Health and Rehab, Westview Manor of Peabody and many others.

For those who have trinkets we could use, please drop off those decorative items. It could be old valentines that we could cut up, or little buttons, cut-outs or anything to surprise us.

Come by and have a cup of coffee and maybe stay for good meal. Either way, we look forward to seeing you.

For those who can’t come in, call and we will deliver. Meals are $3.50 for age 60 and older, and $5.25 for age 59 and younger.

For more information about the center, or to make meal reservations, call 620-983-2226.
