Senior Showcase

WHAT’S HAPPENING?


Hello Finney County and area seniors. We are now highly recommending that you wear a mask while at the Senior Center. The COVID-19 numbers continue to grow in Garden City and all of southwest Kansas. Wear a mask, wash your hands frequently and maintain six feet social distancing whenever possible. Leslie is doing a lot of extra cleaning and sanitizing at the Senior Center to help keep you safe. Marcia, Rhonda and the drivers and staff at Transit are also taking a lot of extra measures to keep the buses and the Transit Center all sanitized and clean. Masks are required to ride the bus.


Medicare Open Enrollment continues through the first week in December. This is the time you can evaluate and make changes to medication coverage and supplemental coverage. RSVP will once again have Dick or Donna to help you evaluate your current Medicare coverages. Call Annette at 275-5566 to make an appointment.
