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.  My office is closed between 11am and 1pm every day  because I am down teaching classes in the lunchroom, otherwise, I would be happy to see you

It is now time for all Payson Senior Citizen members to renew their yearly dues.  For the entire year the price 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 now have an  "Alternate meal" which is a cup of soup and a small 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 before 1pm.. 801-465-5215. 439 W. Utah Avenue
