Osage County Senior Center: Scrapbooking donations offer opportunity for new classes

Osage County Senior Center is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday-Friday, and activities are picking up now that a lot of patrons have received COVID-19 shots.

The center has received a donation of scrapbooking supplies and is considering offering a scrapbooking class.  Anyone interested is asked to call the center at 785-528-1170. Anyone with suggestions on other activities or crafts is asked to contact the center. Likely there is someone else that would like to try it, also.

Mexican Train games continue on Tuesdays, and some weeks every afternoon, for anyone interested in playing.

There are books in centers library – some are free and some need to be checked out. Also puzzles can be checked out, and there is always one being worked on at the big table.

The center is currently accepting donations for an upcoming thrift sale, that will begin at 7 a.m. Saturday, April 10, 2021. Due to the car show that day, Market Street and downtown side streets will be closed, limiting parking near the senior center.

Chair exercise classes have started and are held at 9-9:45 a.m. daily, with approximately 12 men and women participating. After approximately two weeks or when anyone feels comfortable and wants to do some additional work out, Leslie Sansone’s seniors walk video is available. Everyone can start out slow and work at their own pace.
