Senior center remains open but less social during pandemic

The Osage County Senior Center is open 8 a.m.-4 p.m. Monday through Friday, but activities have slowed down due to COVID-19. Mexican Train games are still played on Tuesdays and some weeks every afternoon if anyone is interested in playing.

Books are available in the center’s library – some are free and some need to be checked out. Also there are puzzles that can be checked out and always one being worked at the big table.

Anyone in need of a coat should check at the center; a few of different sizes are available for free.

The senior center is selling beirocks as a fundraiser for Super Bowl Sunday Feb. 7, 2021. To place an order, call 785-528-1170 or stop by the senior center. There will be a limited supply, with pickup 12-4 p.m. Friday, Feb. 5, at the center.

The center is currently taking donations for a thrift sale to be held in April.

Commodities are distributed the second Wednesday every month at the center. Osage County citizens 60 years old or older that meet income guidelines qualify for the program. To signup, income verification and a one-month waiting period is required. The commodities are ordered one month in advance. For more information to determine if individuals or households qualify for the program, contact the senior center. Osage County citizens unable to come to Osage City to pick up commodities are asked to call the senior center.

For more information, contact Tammy Fager, Osage County Senior Center director, at 785-528-1170, or 604 Market St., Osage City, Kan.
