Osage County Senior Center: Thrift sale a success thanks to donors, volunteers, shoppers

By Tammy Fager, Director

Thrift sale – We would like to thank everyone that donated and helped and bought at the Osage County Senior Center thrift sale. It was a big success.

Ceramics – We have a small group of individuals that do ceramics at the center. We have a room for ceramics with a kiln in it. Currently they meet on Tuesday mornings but are open to meeting at other times. If you are interested in getting involved in ceramics or would like to take a look at their space, call the center 785-528-1170 or stop in 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday.

Art and painting – Instructor Erin drives from Burlington for this class. We have several men and women that belong to this group. The projects are the individuals and some paintings are for sale at the center.

Sewing Chicks – On Mondays and Wednesdays the sewing chicks are working on quilts and other projects. Anyone is welcome to join this group. The Sewing Chicks do a lot. They sell the items they make and donate the money to the senior center, Meals on Wheels, and other organizations that need the items. At 1 p.m. Mondays, the Sewing Chicks change from sewing to crocheting, knitting, needle point or any other project they are working on. It’s called Threads Around the Table, and they work on their own projects and visit.

Commodities – Commodities are distributed the second Wednesday of every month. Participants must be 60 years old or older to qualify, and have an income of no more than $1,354 for one person or $1,832 for two persons in the same house. Income verification is required. A one-month waiting period is required due to ordering a month in advance. Anyone in Osage County is eligible if they meet the above qualifications. Anyone with more people in the household are asked to contact the senior center for help with determining if you qualify.
