Senior center offers opportunities to remain socially active

By Stephanie Watson

I was reading an article from a senior journal source and it stated “The benefit of an active social life for senior citizens is one of those things that continues to be proven. New research confirms that the final years of life, even when challenged by health problems, can be better for both men and women if they stay active socially.”

Join us at the Osage County Senior Center for exercise, art, health classes, games, trips, community activities, and outings. Watch our weekly schedule!

Don’t forget May 14 is an evening of music and mingling, with dessert and dancing with the Kings of Swing.
