At noon on Oct. 25, the senior center potluck welcomes everyone; just bring a covered dish. Sheriff Laurie Dunn will be speaking on robo calls and scams.

We want to make sure everyone knows that commodities are distributed at the Osage County Senior Center.

If you have more people in the household, contact the senior center and we can help with determining if you qualify.
