Senior Scribbles (Week of November 16, 2016)

hillsboro senior center

Hearing aid checks are planned for 11 a.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16, with Haris Zafar of Salina.

Show and Tell is Friday Nov. 18. Next week, we are closing Thursday and Friday, Nov. 24-25 for the Thanks­giving holiday. For those who need a fro­zen meal for Fri­day Nov. 25, please let us know soon so you can pick it up or have it delivered Nov. 23. Our birthday dinner is Nov. 28 during our noon meal. As a remind­er, we have games and fellowship every Monday after the meal and every Wednesday after lunch, we play bingo. Hope you will join us soon for a meal. With the holidays coming, we still have plenty of meal tickets that can be purchased. They make a great gift. The center is looking for volunteers. If anybody can help, please call for more information. We are also in need of donations to help keep our center in operation.

When all the bills are paid each month to include utilities and other routine maintenance, it comes to $3,000 a month. Sometimes we only have about half of that amount from donations, which is why it’s so important to have events to help.

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

We celebrated the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series when Sue Clough, long-time Cubs fan, brought in ice cream treats on Oct. 3. We welcomed the Harvest House group eating lunch with us on Nov. 4. I want to thank Vickie Kaempfe for bringing in a lot of Halloween decorations, including a huge hanging spider. We sent our emergency meals to our home delivery people. They are to be used in case of power going out ad are shelf stable. They are also available for those who eat at the center.

Our program on Nov. 9 was given by Scott Akers, physician at St. Luke Medi­cal Clinic. We will observe Micky Mouse’s birthday Nov. 18. Wear your Mickey Mouse shirt and ears. We are closed Thanksgiving Day, but open the Friday after.
