Senior center challenges blood donors countywide

By Tammy Fager
Senior Center Director

When we think of autumn we think of October and its now officially here now.

I am sorry I had an error on last week’s news, Salt Creek will be at the center on Oct. 2 not Oct. 3. We are hoping this will be a monthly event.

Don’t forget to come visit on Oct. 3 and get a free coffee or juice.

The center will have Quartermania at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 5, till around noon.

Osage Rehab will be here on Oct. 10, with biscuits and gravy, starting at 8:30 a.m. They don’t last long so come early.

Don’t forget commodities will be available Oct. 9.

Birthday dinner is on Oct. 16. The VA representative will also be here on the 16th.

From noon until 4 p.m. Oct. 18, we are having a community blood drive. You will be seeing signs around announcing the senior center is challenging all business in Osage County that want to participate, to see who can have the highest number of people donate blood in their business company name. I’ve also been asked to pass the challenge on to all the former Hallmark employees to donate. If you were a Hallmark employee just let us know, but you can also donate in the name of a current business.  The business that has the highest number of donors will get a traveling trophy – hoping that this is an annual event.

We will have an Osage County Senior Center potluck on Oct. 25. Anyone is welcome, just bring a covered dish. We have requested the attorney general’s office come and speak this day on the problem of telephone scams. I have not heard back from them but will keep everyone posted.
