Senior Citizen Center
Welcome to Payson Senior Citizen's Center.
We are located at 439 West Utah Avenue. This is the same building that 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. (801-465-5215).
Our yearly membership is $10 for the year. Since we are partway through the year already the membership will just be $5 until January.
We serve lunch Monday through Friday at ten minutes to noon until 15 after 12. If you are not there by then your meal may be offered as leftovers to the other seniors eating unless you have called in ahead of time. Lunch is $3.00 for regular lunch or $3.00 for the Alternate meal for people 60 and over. The new "Alternate meal" is a cup of soup and a half turkey sandwich on the 1st and 3rd weeks of the month, or on the 2nd and 4th weeks the alternate meal is a salad. You have to order lunch at least a day ahead by 1pm.. 801-465-5215. 439 W. Utah Avenue.
Every day you are welcome to come in and play games, put together puzzles, read books. Our rule is if you are a member and want to take a couple puzzles or books home and then just bring them back when you are done that is great. We believe in the honor system. The games do need to stay here at the center though. We have two pool tables, a treadmill, a gazelle, a health rider, a shake machine, a stationary bike, a computer with internet, three different newspapers, television, lots of visiting. Come and join us.
