Senior Scribbles

 

HILLSBORO SENIOR CENTER

This week we will have bingo on Wednesday, Feb. 26 after the noon meal and then we come to the end of February and start the new month of March and hopefully warmer temps, too. The senior center is needing a fill in cook and a fill in dishwasher. You will get paid training for both positions. Call for more information at 620-947-2304. We also are needing volunteers on Thursdays and Fridays from 11 a.m. -1:15 p.m. If you can help let us know please. We have a great time and great fellowship at our center. We want to thank everyone for your help and support to our center.

—Brenda Moss, director

Peabody senior center Last week was a little quiet for us, but it is always enjoyable to visit with the diners who braved the weather. We do several home deliveries and with the weather, a few more were added. Our volunteer drivers are really a blessing as they make sure everyone gets their meal.

 

Last Wednesday commodities were passed out. Our business meeting was on Tuesday, Feb. 25. Ash Wednesday started on Wednesday, Feb. 26 with Pastor Jim Pohlman giving a program after lunch. Several different pastors and friends will continue to do these programs each Wednesday for six weeks. We hope you can come and enjoy the programs. March menus are ready to be picked up if you havn’t already taken one. If you have been assessed for meals, whether you dine in or have delivered, you can receive 14 meals a week. Meals are $3.50 for 60+ and $5.25 for 59 and under. Be sure to call and make a reservation. Take advantage of our Meals on Wheels program, please call for information (620-983-2226).
