Fitness specialist to assist armchair exercisers

By Osage County Senior Center Director Byron Jordan

To all those interested in joining in or already participating in Osage County Senior Center’s Monday and Wednesday armchair exercise program, you will be happy to know the program will be assisted by a physical fitness specialist from the Area Agency on Aging the next couple of months. She will make it more fun and more educational, so see our activities calendar below and come on in.

The next community blood drive at the center is 12:30-5:30 p.m. May 8 and the local volunteer crew is really planning a big day with a great lunch meal and raffle drawings throughout the day for donors. This is a great program made even better by local citizens.

The signup sheet is now out for the May 22 evening supper trip to Luigi’s Italian Restaurant, in Ottawa.  The bus will leave at 5:30 p.m.; a $3 transit donation is requested.  The rider appreciation trip is set for May 29 and will be going to Truckhenge and Beer Bottle City, near Topeka, followed by lunch and antique shopping at the Billard Airport Café and Airport Antiques. Stop by the center at 604 Market St., Osage City, or call 785-828-4994 for details and signup.
