At the Oswego Senior Center, we seek community connection.  We are looking to bring people together. All of our lives we are socialized- whether we want to or not- through school and work; then we are set adrift from the mandatory socialization through retirement. But socialization brings connection and with that purpose, will and vitality, which is necessary for what could very well be the long haul of the golden years.  

 

We continue to serve more and more seniors each year through a variety of programs, activities, classes and travel; it is through the generous support of our community that we are able to do what we do so well.
