Senior scribbles, June 10, 2015


Australian Sky and Weather with Clyve Herbert and Jane O’Neill will be here Monday, June 22, to show us pictures. It will be a great program.

This month?s jam session is June 11. Remember, it is always the second Thursday of the month.

Footcare is the third Tuesday of the month and Haris Zafar will be here on the third Wednesday of each month.

Because of state budget cuts recently, the price of meals has gone up. The only other alternative would be to start closing centers or suspending the meal program.

For those reasons, the cost for those 60 and older is $3.50. For those under age 60, the cost is $5.25. Prices went into effect June 1.

For those over age 60 who can?t afford to pay that much, please pay what you can.

Those age 59 and younger still have a great deal at $5.25.

Please don?t stop coming. We have great fellowship and great meals.

Come join us for a meal soon.

For more information or to volunteer, stop by 212 N. Main St. or call 620-947-2304 between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m.

We hope to see you soon.
