Senior Circle plans visit to state fair

Woodward, Okla. — A local senior citizens group is organizing a road trip to the Oklahoma State Fair.

The Senior Circle group, which is an outreach program for citizens age 50 and over sponsored by Woodward Regional Hospital, will be taking a bus trip to the Oklahoma State Fair on Sept. 19th.

According to Lori Messenger, marketing director with the Woodward Regional Hospital, 13 people have already signed up, but at least 30 participants are needed to be able to charter a bus for the drive down to Oklahoma City.

The deadline to sign up for the trip is Aug. 31, so that there is time to reserve the charter bus.

"This trip is open to all seniors, and they do not have to be a member of the Senior Circle to go along," Messenger said.

She said that during that day at the fair there will be numerous activities geared towards seniors.

"It is the state fair's senior day, which everyone 55 and older will get in for free, but they are going to have a full day of activities for seniors. Many of them include Las Vegas style activities, music, game shows and craft demonstrations," Messenger said.

Messenger said there will be a fee to cover the cost of the bus and participants will also be responsible for any food or souvenir items they may want to purchase during the trip.

The bus will be leaving from the Woodward Regional Hospital emergency room parking lot at 7:30 a.m. Sept. 19 and will return to Woodward around 8:30 p.m.

To sign up for this event and for pricing, please contact Lori Messenger at 254-8665 or Donna Womack at 334-0943.
