Story County Conservation invites the public to the monthly O.W.L.S. (Older, Wiser, Livelier Seniors) program at the Story County Conservation Center at McFarland Park (56461 180th St.) northeast of Ames on Tuesday, Sept. 1, beginning at 11 a.m.

Are you a caregiver needing some assistance? Could you use a home-delivered meal? Do you enjoy playing cards, dancing or thought about taking a computer class? Have you considered being a friendly visitor? If you answered YES, Heartland Senior Services of Story County needs you! We provide valuable programs and services to older adults, their families and caregivers throughout Story County. Join us as we provide the ‘101’ on all things Heartland Senior Services and learn about our activities, adult day center, outreach and nutrition programs!

O.W.L.S. programs are designed for “boomers” or older – but anyone can attend. An optional luncheon follows the program at 12 p.m. Lunch is catered for a $7.50 fee, and registration with payment is required by 4 p.m., Friday, Aug. 28. The planned lunch menu is baked potato bar and peach crisp.
