Annual senior fair offers health checks, important information, and door prizes

The annual Senior Health and Resource Fair is just a week away. On April 23 several service provider vendors will be set up at the Osage County Senior Center, 604 Market St., Osage City, providing information, health checks, and door prizes, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Everyone should stop at the front desk to get their name on a raffle ticket before visiting the vendor booths. The grand prize, sponsored by Osage County General Public Transportation, is a $150 gift card.  Numerous other door prizes will be raffled also. The drawings will begin at 12:45 p.m., and you must be present to win. If you would like to eat lunch with us that day make sure to call ahead the day before.

On Friday, April 24, we are providing bus service to Arbor Court’s bingo extravaganza in Topeka. Arbor Court Bingo starts at 2 p.m., so the bus will leave the senior center a little after 1 p.m., and return around 4:30 p.m. The bingo games are free, and there will be plenty of prizes.  Plus, each player will get a root beer float to enjoy during the games. A $3 transit donation will be requested, and the trip will be limited to the first 14 people who sign up. Call the senior center at 785-528-4906 for more information.
