The Senior Center of Finney County is
committed to providing services, information,
education and recreation for seniors, families
and caregivers in Finney County. The Senior
Center responds to a growing senior population
with expanding and changing needs. We
envision a caring and healthy community which
encourages intergenerational relationships,
recognizes the wisdom and experience of its
elders and demonstrates awareness and
respect for the aging process.

The purpose of this organization is:
  • To study the needs of the elderly throughout the county and take necessary action to meet those needs.
  • To encourage, promote and aid in the establishment of all programs and services for Senior Citizens.
  • To be the designated county unit for handling programs of the State and Federal Government relating to
    Senior Citizens within Finney County.

The Senior Center of Finney County is funded by Finney County, Southwest Kansas Area Agency on Aging,

Senior Citizens Association
The Finney County Senior Citizens Association, known as the Association, is the organization
that worked to get the Senior Center established. They purchased the first Mini Bus for Finney
County and established Meals on Wheels 40 years ago. The Association is still active today.
They sponsor the weekly dances held at the Senior Center, host a monthly covered dish dinner,
and sponsor an annual bazaar as a fund-raiser. Now is a great time to join the Association as
plans are being made for the Bazaar held in October. Everyone age 55+ in Finney County is
welcome. Membership dues are only $3 per year. Covered dish dinners are held the first Friday
of each month at 6:00 pm. The entertainment for July 6th is the Humdinger Band. August 3rd
entertainment is “Too Many Strings”. Join us for fun, fellowship and great food.
