AARP helps citizens beat tax filing deadline

By Osage County Senior Center Director Byron Jordan

We were very fortunate to have the free AARP Tax Aid Service here March 5at the Osage County Senior Center once again. Fifty-seven tax returns were processed for local citizens by eight AARP tax representatives. We look forward to seeing them around here next year.

The March 4 ceramics shopping trip to Hetrick Ceramics, in Tecumseh, has been rescheduled for the morning of Tuesday, March 18. If anyone is interested in our weekly ceramics program this is an opportunity to purchase greenware and learn more about the craft. Call the center at 785-528-4906 to reserve a seat on the bus or to learn more about this program.

The signup list is out for the rider appreciation trip March 27to the COF Training Services workshop, in Burlington, Huff’s Greenhouse, the Dairy Queen for lunch, and Arnold’s Greenhouse, in LeRoy, for their spectacular spring displays. A $5 donation is requested per person to cover transit and entry fees. Call or stop by the center at 604 Market St., Osage City, for more information.
