Enjoy the change of seasons at the senior center

The cool, crisp days of autumn are approaching. As fall foliage creates a colorful display and kids frolic in leaf piles on the lawn, you may want to pay some mind to a few lesser known facts about this beloved time of year. The first day of autumn is known as the autumnal equinox. On Sept. 23, the number of hours of daylight and darkness are equal. This is because the sun is aligned with the center of the Earth between the north and south of the planet. The other equinox occurs in the spring, which arrives in the third week of March in the Northern Hemisphere.

Celebrate the arrival of a new season at the Osage County Senior Center. Attend the regular schedule of events or simply drop in for a game of bingo on a Friday morning.  Enjoy your Tuesday afternoons with a relaxing game of Mexican Train dominoes.

To promote the public transit service, the center is offering a bus trip on Sept. 19 to Emporia for lunch at Long John Silvers and downtown shopping. Enjoy the week to come with sewing, ceramics, art and painting and of course bingo!

For more information about the center’s activities , call 785-528-4906, or stop by at 604 Market St., Osage City.
