Osage County Senior Center: All invited to monthly potluck dinner

On Jan. 17, 2020, the Osage County Senior Center will have its January potluck lunch. It was decided to try a themed potluck and this month will be Mexican food. This doesn’t mean diners must bring a Mexican dish; all are invited and can bring anything they like.

On Jan. 31 will be another blood drive at the center, and Jan. 25 will be Quartermania for meals on wheels. More information on these events will be available soon.

Commodities are distributed 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 or less for one person or $1,832 or less for two people in the same household. Income verification and a one-month waiting period are required. Anyone in Osage County is eligible if they meet the above qualifications. For those with more people in the household, contact the center for help with determining if you qualify.

Anyone who is unable to come to Osage City to pick up commodities is asked to contact the center. We would like to know if there are people that qualify that can’t get here.
