There’s some funny magic going on at the senior center

By Stephanie Watson

“The Magician’s underwear has just been found floating in a cardboard suitcase under the Dragoon Bridge!” Oh, my! Did I get your attention? That was my goal. Did your imagination visualize the scene? So now the question – boxers or briefs?

I dare you to ask him on Feb. 11 at 1 p.m. Come meet the magician I’m writing about, Joe Stringer, a magician from “In Front of You” who specializes in adult, children and family comedy will perform at the Osage County Senior Center. Wait a minute – how can he specialize in all those types of comedy? He has mastered the art of combining comedy and magic.

May I keep your attention for some of our other exciting events!

Valentine’s Day is almost here and the center has scheduled two events to warm your heart and tummy. Join us for “Let’s Have Soup Together” Valentine’s Day soup luncheon, 11:30 a.m.-2 p.m. Sunday Feb. 14. We will have several different kinds of soup; pick your favorite or sample them all. Just remember, bean soup has some malodorous side effects! Also that morning, local cupcake bakers will have the opportunity to show their culinary and artistic skills with a Valentine’s Day cupcake contest. The senior center is also raffling off a Valentine’s Day quilt, sewn by the center’s sewing group, with the winner to be drawn that day. Tickets are $1 each or six for $5.

Kindness comes from the heart and from expecting nothing in return. Feb. 17 is recognized as Random Acts of Kindness Day – it is to remind us that kindness should be practiced not just on this day but every day.

Tortilla Day is Feb. 24; bring your favorite dip, we have the chips!
