— The city of Stillwater Senior Activity Center, 1015 E. 12th Ave., will celebrate August birthdays with a potluck luncheon at noon Friday. Bring a food dish to share or pay $3 per person.

The center offers a variety of activities for seniors, 50 and older, to choose from for some summer fun including card games such as duplicate and social bridge, canasta, pitch, Texas Hold’em and various other games like dominoes.

The women’s morning pool group is looking for some more players to come out and practice shots on the pool and snooker table. The group meets at 9:30 a.m. Monday, Wednesday and Friday. A painting group brings supplies from home and shares arts and crafts ideas on Monday and Friday mornings.

Get some exercise in a free Sit ‘n Be Fit class on Tuesday and Thursday mornings or on your own using the center’s exercise equipment including a treadmill, weight set and exercise bike. Wii interactive games, line dancing and pingpong can get you moving, too.

A Veteran’s Affairs representative visits from 1-2:45 p.m. Tuesday to help with paper work assistance. No appointment is needed.

At 2 p.m. Wednesday, the center will show the dramatic film “42” which is based on true events.

A men’s pool tournament is scheduled at 1 p.m.  Thursday. Win prizes playing bingo and enjoy musical tunes every Thursday during music night. A jigsaw puzzle table is always set up with a puzzle to solve.

Stop by to pick up an August calendar of events. Hours are 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and  5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday for music night. If you are interested in joining a social or duplicate bridge group, then call 405-747-8080 or leave your name and number with a staff member.
