Beat the summer heat with senior center activities

Osage County Senior Center Director Tammy Fager reports that things are bustling at the center lately. Last week, in addition to regular daily activities, the ladies took a bus trip to Bradley’s Corner in north Topeka for shopping at the mall there, but it was closed, so they went to Walmart and had a good time. Wednesday’s cribbage players also were able to enjoy a movie and popcorn; cribbage players are needed for Monday, Wednesday and Friday games. Last Thursday, several sharpshooters played pool at 1 p.m., even some ladies.

The usual activity schedule at the center is:

  • Mondays, sewing at 8 a.m., exercising 11 a.m., cribbage 12:15 p.m., and pitch and snacks at 5:30 p.m.
  • Tuesdays, ceramics 9 a.m.; Mexican Train games and snacks at 12:30 p.m.
  • Wednesdays, same as Monday with Threads Around the Table.
  • Thursdays, art and painting, and pool at 1 p.m.
  • Fridays, bingo (gift bag, $5 value); cribbage 12:15 p.m.

The Osage County Resource and Health Fair will be Sept. 14, 2019, at the senior center; more information will be available soon. The fair is open to all ages, and provides access to many services and providers to improve people’s well being.

The senior center is still taking donations for a thrift sale on Sept. 21 and 22. Bring donations to the center; if after 4 p.m., call 785-528-1170 to make arraignments.

For more information, stop by the senior center at 604 Market St., Osage City, or call 785-528-1170.
