“We have been very privileged to have some of the forensics students from the high school joins at lunch to present their speeches for us,” Peabody Senior Center site manager Ruth Lott said. “We have been assured that several more will be coming to make presentations as their schedules allow.”
“There is no scheduled time for them to be here so anyone interested in watching them perform should just plan to be here for lunch so they won’t miss the performances,” Lott said. “It is quite enjoyable to have the young people come in and we have enjoyed their presentations.”
On Thursday, the center will honor the people who have volunteered for the past year.
“We know that we could not function without each of our volunteers,” Lott said. “So we want to be sure everyone is on hand for lunch Thursday to thank those that help us so much.”
