Marion Senior Center had its first cookout of the summer June 29. Ed Riffel grilled hot dogs and hamburgers. The meal also included potato salad, coleslaw, and watermelon. Thelma Blosser brought mints with smiley faces, so Sue Clough led the guests in a few songs about smiles. The next cookout will be July 27.

Senior center patrons observed Independence Day on July 3 by reciting the Pledge of Allegiance and singing the “Star-Spangled Banner.” There also was trivia, and greetings from a friend of Joan Meyer in Europe.

Harden Hospice personnel gave a program July 3 and brought cookies to the center.

Gene Winkler brought keychains with flashlights in place of the usual edible birthday treats July 1.
