Senior Adult Programs and Activities

Jean Patterson

We continue to explore options to both meet the existing needs and also to bring interesting new options to our participants and the public in general through regularly scheduled activities as well as community events.

One such event is our weekly Seenagers Acoustic Jam. These are some music making folks who get together at 11:30 on Tuesdays to just jam and have a good time. Bring your guitar, your voice, and your smiles and join in.

Our third Give Back Bingo event will take place on Friday, March 1, from 12:00 noon until 2:00. We have some wonderful prizes donated by area businesses, and cards are only $2, or 3 for $5. You can earn a free Bingo card with the donation of five items of non-perishable food. This goes to the Owasso Community Resources’ food bank. We are thrilled to be able to help our neighbors in need through this fun event.

I am very much looking forward to presentation of a seminar here on Thursday, March 21, at 1:00, Opioids Use Awareness & Education. This program is presented by OSU Master Wellness, INCOG, and RSVP of Tulsa. While every member of the public is invited, the program is aimed specifically at seniors, who are the largest at-risk group for accidental opioid overdose!

This is free to the public, and in fact every attendee will be given a drug disposal kit to take home and safely get rid of old, unused medication. Please plan to be here. Remember: “Knowledge is power.” Empower yourselves!

Two of our support groups are planning a consolidation under the leadership of Karla Ford from Brookdale of Owasso. The Oklahoma Parkinson's Support Group and Caregiver’s Support Group will join forces to offer encouragement and support to even more of our citizens. They will meet on the fourth Thursday of each month at 1:00 p.m.

I’m really excited to tell you about our Spring Craft Fair on April 13. Be here, you won’t be sorry! We’re covering Easter, Prom and Mother’s Day.

Happy Spring! It’s here just in the nick of time!!
