Senior Citizen's Center

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.  (801-465-5215).

Our membership is  Ten dollars for the year, beginning in January of each year.  If you are 80 or older, or you are going to turn 80 during this year, your membership is free. Still stop by the office and go over your information so we have everything correct.  Lunches are $3 a day for all seniors.

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.  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.

We are going to have a "Color of the Day" added to our busy schedule once a month on the third Monday.  If you wear the appropriate color you will get a small treat.

Mother's Day Lunch will be served on Friday, May 10th.  Make sure to sign up ahead of time.

We are closed on Monday, May 27th for Memorial Day

We are going to have Sack Lunches on Tuesday, May 28th.  We will be eating them outside at our senior center.  On the days we have sack lunches there will not be any Alternate meals.
