Senior Citizen's Center
Welcome to Payson Sr 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 membership is Ten dollars for the 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 $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.

It is tax season. The first day that AARP is coming, Feb. 12th is full. The second day is March 19th and it is full. The third and last day is April 9th. It is filling up fast. There are less people doing taxes for us and more areas that are coming to Payson to get their taxes done, so if you want your appointment for simple tax preparation please call Tammy at 801-465-5215 or stop by our office. We appreciate the AARP people coming to do the taxes for our seniors.
