Senior Center News: Community enjoys potluck feast

By Tammy Fager

We had a very nice turnout for the potluck on Friday, Oct. 25. We would like to thank everyone that came out. We would especially like to thank Osage County Sheriff Laurie Dunn for being our guest speaker. Due to all the activities in November we will not be having a potluck but will start again in December.

The Threads Around the Table group will be changing its meeting day to Mondays instead of Wednesdays.

We want to make sure everyone knows that we give out commodities at the Osage County Senior Center. Participants must be 60 years old or older to qualify, with an income of $1,354 or less for one person or $1,832 or less for two persons in the same house. Income verification is required. A one-month waiting period is due to ordering a month in advance. Anyone in Osage County is eligible and they meet the above qualifications. If you have more people in the household, contact the senior center and we can help with determining if you qualify.

Sewing Chicks want to remind everyone that they are still making chemo caps for cancer patients. If you know someone that needs one contact the center. If you would like to help make them you can also contact the center for a pattern. Along with all the quilts, afghans, and pillows, they have aprons for men and women – great Christmas presents – and also a few walker bags with more to come.

For Veterans Day, any veteran that would like to sign up for a free quilt can come to the center and register. The winners’ names will be picked on Nov. 11. Winners do not need to be present to win.
