Good food, good times, good friends at the senior center

By Tammy Fager, Director

The Osage County Senior Center’s next fundraiser will be a pancake feed 7-10 a.m.  Saturday, March 7, 2020. Pancakes served until 10 a.m. or until they are gone.

Winners for the cupcake contest were Pam Noonan, best tasting, and Barb Janes, best decorated. Honorable mention went to Mary Treinen and Teresa Nell. Thank to everyone that made the cupcakes and helped with the contest. Special thanks to Colton Hultgren, Mariah O’Bryan, and Fred Diver for being our judges.

Larry Tindell submitted the winning guess for the amount of candy in the candy dish. Nadine Tindell won the Valentine’s Day lap quilt giveaway.

The center auctioned off the remaining cupcakes at the potluck dinner on Wednesday, Feb. 12. We had a lot of fun with it. The money made will be used for future potlucks.

The center is taking donations for a yard sale that will be in April.

Anyone that would like to help with quilting or does crocheting, knitting or needlepoint, is welcome to join the Sewing Chicks on Mondays. Quilting is Mondays and Wednesdays.

AARP tax preparers will be at the Osage County Senior Center 9 a.m.-3 p.m. March 3, 2020. They will help 40 people on a first come first serve bases. There is a sign-up sheet and paper work at the center.
