Senior Citizen's Center
Our senior citizen's center is officially closed right now until further notice; probably the first part of April, per the Governor's announcement, and our Mayor, City Manager, and City Attorney. We are taking this action to keep everyone safe.
If you are aware of a senior that may need assistance during this time please call Tammy at 801-465-5215. Leave a message if I don't answer the phone. I am here Monday through Friday but not always at my desk.
Welcome to Payson Sr Citizen's Center. We are located at 439 West Utah Avenue. This is the same building where you pay your city bill. We are located on the South-East side of the building right behind the police station. We are open Monday through Friday from
8am-4pm. I am not in the office between 11am and 1pm every day because I am down teaching classes in the lunchroom.
Payson Senior Citizen members yearly dues for the entire year is only $10.00. If you are 80 or more your membership is free. However, please stop by and meet with Tammy in the office to make sure your information is up to date on the computer and get your new membership card. (I hate it when I need to call a family member in an emergency, or even you the senior, and I don't have an updated phone number). Thank you.
We serve lunch Monday through Friday at ten minutes before noon. Lunch is $3.00 for all seniors 60 and over. You have to order lunch at least a day ahead by 1pm.. 801-465-5215. 439 W. Utah Avenue as we have our meals brought in. We will hold your meal until 12:15 only.
Monday, Every week day you are welcome to come in and play games, put together puzzles, read books. Our rule is if you are a member you can take a couple puzzles or books home and then just bring them back when you are done. We believe in the honor system. We play games like checkers, and Skipbo, and Dominos, 5 Crown, and card games, etc. plus we have several different monthly senior magazines that we subscribe to, and they do need to stay here at the center but you are so welcome to use them while you are here. We have two pool tables, a treadmill, a gazelle, a health rider, a shake machine, two stationary bikes, a computer with internet, three different newspapers, television, piano, organ, lots of visiting and socializing. Come and join us.
