Senior Citizen's Center
Welcome to Payson Sr Citizen's Center. (You do not have to be from Payson to join us)
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).
It is time to renew our memberships. Ten dollars covers the entire year. If you are 80 or more your membership is free. Still stop by the office and go over your information so we have everything correct. Lunches are still $3 a day for all seniors.
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 and magazines do need to stay here at the center though. 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. Come and join us.

Did you know that we have a bus that picks up our seniors at 10am, bringing them to lunch and then takes them home at 1pm? It is free for the Payson seniors.
We sell Chuck A Rama Discount tickets to seniors for $1 each.
We sell ENSURE to medically qualified seniors for $20 a case. Limit two cases per month. You need to sign up for this so call Tammy at 801-465-5215 to get the instructions.
If you would like to buy the Chuck A Rama tickets, buy ENSURE, or join our senior center, please consider coming before 11 in the morning, or after 1pm as we are busy with our classes and our lunch and no one is in the office during this two hour period each day.
I have heard some concerns that we do not go on overnight trips anymore. We do have overnight trips that our seniors go on. They are not directly sponsored by Payson Senior Center, there are seniors trips our seniors go on through Betty and Holly's Travel, and also through H2u. Both of these just went on trips to Branson so don't worry that the seniors do not go on overnighters, they do.
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. You have to order lunch at least a day ahead by 1pm.. 801-465-5215. 439 W. Utah Avenue.
