Senior Scribbles (11-28-18)

HILLSBORO senior center

We hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving and got to spend time with your family and friends.

As we get to the end of November, we start to think about holiday shopping and gifts. We have meal tickets you can purchase that make a great gift. We have a shop and stop store where you can purchase gifts and cards.

You can come check out our little store on Saturday, Dec. 1 during the Down Home Christmas from 11 a.m.- 5 p.m. We have lots of Christmas items.

On Friday, Nov. 30 we will have show and tell to share holiday crafts or memories.

We are also going to have our Christmas dinner on Thursday, Dec. 20 with our sing along. Sign up by Dec. 10 as our cook needs to order the food.

We also can deliver meals and you can pick up meals by 11am. We can only take so many for in-house at the center. Let us know soon.

We are also needing volunteers to help from 11a.m.-1:15 p.m. Let us know if you can help.

We want to thank everyone for your help and donations to our center. That’s what keeps us going. We only run off the donations we bring in so we hope you will keep giving to keep our center going strong. We can also give you a receipt for your donations.

The meal donation is for the NCFHAAA in Manhattan for our nutrition site. They pay for the food cost and the head cook and site manager wages, but they do not help with utility bills or any repairs.

The board also pays our dishwasher and gives extra to our cook and site manager as they only make minimum wage. They help offset that some and we are grateful for that.

We love our jobs at the center and love helping people. We want to wish everyone a Merry Christmas and happy new year.

Peabody senior center

We hope you had a great time with your families this Thanksgiving. This past weekend seemed like a perfect time to rake leaves and prepare for our next storm passing through.

Peppernuts are still available, but they are almost gone. We’ve had lots of fun with all the volunteers showing up so faithfully and visiting with everyone. Seemed like one big family, it was hard to believe we were done baking the peppernuts.

On Saturday, Dec. 1, Peabody is having a special event called “Come Home for Christmas” with a full day of activities planned for all age groups. A Christmas Craft will be held at our Senior Center from 2-4 p.m. for anyone 18 years or older. Two different crafts will be available. You have the option to complete one or both. There will be a fee that will go towards supplying the material. Check out what’s going on.

Grief Share will be from 3-4:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 11. This is open to anyone who would like to come.

Dr. Whitely will present a program at the Birthday Dinner on Wednesday, Dec. 12. Rachel Gfeller will do chair massages and Sonja Koslowsky will play the piano.

We will also have the Christmas Light Tour on the evening of Dec. 12. The school bus from Peabody-Burns USD 398 will be providing the ride. They will pick up anyone who wants to see the lights around Peabody at 6:30 p.m. at the center. No charge and hot cocoa with treats will be served afterward. We look forward to seeing you.

Other programs will be coming up yet this month. Come have a cup of coffee with us and stay for lunch.

December menus now available. Meals are $3.50 for 60+ and $5.25 for 59 and under.

Take advantage of our Meals on Wheels program, please call for information at 620-983-2226.
