Osage County Senior Center: Decorating for the holidays

By Tammy Fager, Osage County Senior Center Director

Joan, with the help of volunteers, decorated the Osage County Senior Center for the Osage City Chamber’s Christmas on Market Street celebration and the upcoming community Thanksgiving meal.

On Dec. 3, a foot care company will be here to take any additional people that need toenails clipped or any other foot problems checked. You need to make an appointment for this. If we don’t have additional people sign up we will have to cancel this date.

Due to all the activities in November we will not be having a potluck this month, but will start again on Dec. 18. Meal service will be furnishing turkey with stuffing, ham and mashed potatoes, so we just need some additional trimmings and desserts. We hope to see you then.

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 anyone would like to buy one they are $5 each. If you would like to help make them you can contact the center for a pattern.

Along with quilts, afghans, pillows, they have aprons for men and women – all great Christmas presents. They also really some really nice walker bags made out of upholstery material, with more to come.

We want to make sure everyone knows that we give out commodities at the center on the second Wednesday of every month. Participants must be at least 60 years old to qualify with an income of $1,354 for one person or $1,832 for two persons in the same house or less. Income verification is required, as well as a one-month waiting period. The waiting period is due to ordering a month in advance. Anyone in Osage County is eligible and they meet the qualifications. Contact the center and we can help with determining if you qualify. If you are unable to come to Osage City and pick up commodities.

For more information, stop by the Osage County Senior Center at 604 Market St., Osage City, Kan., or call 785-528-1170.
