Hello from the Osage County Senior Center and the Osage County Public Transportation.

Osage County has entered the Sunflower and Scarecrow Contest at the Kansas State Fair, and we here at the senior center made the entry – it was a group effort. We took it to the state fair Thursday of last week and are waiting to hear how we placed.

I also would like to mention that Osage City Police Chief Fred Nech has gone above and beyond his line of duty with a homeless family in Osage City. He has found them shelter and food, and is personally putting them on a bus Saturday to send them back home to her family. I just think that kindness these days is hard to find, and wanted to tell everyone that there are still kind people in this world, and in this small town in Kansas.

The next Lunch Bunch will be to Four Corners on Sept. 22; leaving at 10:30 a.m. The ceramics class is up and going; $4 per class, most supplies are furnished. High Rollers is 2 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursday afternoons.

Home Town Health Care is here to call quarter bingo at 10 a.m. every Tuesday; come and enjoy. The casino trip will be Sept. 26, call now and make your reservations. Starting in this month we are going to do shopping trips on the first and third Thursdays of the month – we will be going to Topeka Walmart, Sam’s and Aldi’s. Riders need to call the Transportation department to make reservations. These trips will take place of using public transportation on a daily basis for shopping trips, and will allow us to better use transportation for other trips and serve more clients.

Herms Footcare is here at 9 a.m. Sept. 14; those interested must call them for an appointment.

Here at the senior center, we are in need of donations of buttons and lace. If anyone has any they would like to donate we would love to have them.

I am open to all suggestions for activities and or outings. Don’t forget that we rent out the senior center as a venue, for any events that might need a larger accommodation.

Come and enjoy the fun and activities with us! Thanks Franny!
