Osage County Senior Center: Learn to make your own Christmas cards

The Osage County Senior Center is working to get a ceramics and painting group started again. We have had a large number of ceramic supplies donated to the center. If interested, contact the center for additional details.

Christmas cards

There will be a Christmas card making class at 11:30 a.m. Nov. 24, in the ceramics room, and we have all the supplies you will need.

Osage County Public Transportation

Osage County General Public Transportation has moved to the senior center, 604 Market St., Osage City. The phone number is still the same, 785-528-4906. Anyone needing a ride can call; rides provided on first come first serve basis and door to door. We currently have a two stop limit. If additional stops are needed, dispatch needs to know and we’ll see what can be done with scheduling. We transport riders to medical appointments, work, shopping, etc. On a regular basis OCGPT goes to Topeka, Emporia, Lawrence, Ottawa, and the Kansas City area.

Commodities distribution

Senior 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 sign up, income verification and a one-month waiting period is required. The commodities are ordered one month in advance. For more information, or 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 785-219-2440, or stop by the center at 604 Market St., Osage City, Kan.
