Senior center welcomes fall with special activities and trips

The Osage County Senior Center is decorated for fall with a few fall activities planned. Join us on Sept. 19, 2015 for a bus ride to Emporia. The bus will be leaving the center at 10:45 a.m., travelling to Long John Silver’s for a delightful lunch. Following lunch it is time to shop Emporia, where you will find unique shops, antiques and boutiques. A $3 transit donation is requested prior to boarding and lunch costs will be the responsibility of each rider.

On Sept. 26 will be the Cider Days Festival, with an Osage County general public transportation trip to Topeka to the Expo Center for an adventure at the festival. Admission fee is $7 at the gate or $6 in advance. Call the senior center to reserve your spot and a $6 ticket at 785-528-4906. The bus will leave the center promptly at 9 a.m. Sept. 26.

Fall activities at the center will include celebrating the first day of autumn on Sept. 23!
