By Shari Campbell

WHAT’S HAPPENING?

Hello June!

KANSAS FARMER’S MARKET PROGRAM has begun with the opening of our local Farmers Market on June 5. The KS Farmer’s Market Program provides $35.00 in coupons to be used at the local Farmer’s Market. You must be a Finney County Resident, you must be age 60 and you must meet incomes guidelines. Come and see Della at Senior Center anytime on/after June 1 to apply or learn more. You may call us at 272-3620 to get more information.

COVID UPDATE– We are still strongly urging those who come to the Senior Center to wear a mask. Due to federal funding and federal regulations, Finney County Transit does require masks on buses for riders & staff and inside the Transit Center, too.

TRANSIT – We still have free rides on all the buses only until June 30. No better time to try us out. Give us a call at 272-3626 and our friendly dispatchers will help you get where you need to go.

SENIOR BUS TRIPS – I am still looking for a driver. A CDL with passenger endorsement is required. Please call me if you want to know more. 272-3620. This is a 2-3 days per month opportunity. A nice simple part-time job for the right person. Also, it is a lot of fun.

ON THE HORIZON:
