We are giving flu shots starting at 10 a.m. Wednes?day, Oct. 14, through Wal-Mart pharmacy. They also give whooping cough, shingles and pneumonia shots. For those interested, come in and sign up for whichever shots you need.

Chair massages are Oct. 7, and if interested, please call the center to sign up.

Our jam session is the second Thursday of every month. Mark your calenders for Oct. 8 and hope to see you.

We hope you can come join us soon at the center.

We are in need of volunteers, and we need people to fill in October. Please call or stop by the center if you can help. Meals are free the day somebody works, too.

Volunteer hours are from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. We also need Meals on Wheels substitute drivers, and if anyone can help, let us know.

Our thanks to everyone who helps support the senior center. If anyone would like to present a music program or talk about a recent trip, let us know. For those making presentation, their meal is free that day.

The fresh vegetables during the summer months were a welcome addition. Thanks to everyone who donated.

We want to again thank Barkman Honey for helping to keep our center thriving by offering $2 for every $1 raised during the next 12 months. We are so grateful for their help, and we hope more people can assist us, too.

So here is a ?shout out? to other businesses. We could use your help

PEABODY senior center

Peppernut season is here and we are cleaning the back room and washing all the equipment needed for baking those delicious little cookies. Contact the center to see what day it will begin, which is either Thursday or Friday after lunch.

The actual baking begins Oct. 8 after the kitchen is cleared from the noon day meal. We need lots of positions filled to complete this project. People are needed to mix the dough in the mornings, and then we need a person to fill the guns.

Strong people are needed to shoot the cookies on the baking sheets and others to arrange the cookies on the sheets for baking.

Following the baking, someone is needed to clean the pans and make them ready to start the process over again.

This is actually a lot of fun and a great time to visit with friends, neighbors, and even family.

Join us. We need lots of help and we think others will enjoy the time. We bake each Monday and Thursday until just before Thanksgiving.

We invite everyone to visit us at 106 N. Walnut and pick up a copy.

Decide which days you would like to join us and then make your reservations at 620-983-2226.

We look forward to seeing you.

For more information, or to make reservations, call 620-983-2226.
