I don’t have much to write about this week except the cold rainy weather.  It’s no wonder everyone is becoming ill with colds and flu.  It is so hard to keep away from it, but we do now have hand sanitizer on each table.  We all have to be very careful when we are shopping.  Walmart has sheets to wipe off the cart handles back in the pharmacy as well as the hand cleaner.  We women need to carry this product in our purses.  I don’t know where the men will carry theirs.


The November menus are ready for distribution.  Please note all centers will be closed WED. NOV 11th for VETERANS DAY.  We will also be closed two days for the Thanksgiving holiday.  Those dates are Thurs., Nov  26th and Fri. Nov 27th.    We have some great meals coming up.  Right off the bat we have  roast pork with all the trimmings on the 2nd AND THEN ON NOV. 3rd WE HAVE LIVER AND ONIONS.  Liver lovers don’t miss out on this meal.  Judy makes the best liver around.  It is mild, tender and delicious.  The  rest of the lunch includes a baked potato, buttered corn, a big fudgy brownie and fruit cup.  The meals  always include coffee, milk tea or water or all of the above.  To get your meal for the low, low suggested donation of $2.75, you only have to be 60yrs old or older.  Make sure  you call by 9:30a.m. the day before you wish to eat at 442-5550.  Stop by and pick up a monthly menu or watch the KS Chief for a weekly menu.  We do carryout meals and we accept Vision cards.


If you need a ride to shop, go to the Dr. or Dentist, get your hair done or any other appointment you have, please call Public Transportation at 785-985-2380.

I hope you have a  wonderful week.  I want to remind you  that if you plan to have a family gathering here in November or December to please get you reservations in NOW!   We already  have some reservations in.

Stay dry and keep smiling and laugh each and every day even if it’s about something dumb you have done.  It will make you feel better.
