MIDWEST CITY — Up to 7,000 people a month visit the Midwest City Senior Center. They show up for fun, companionship and food, center officials said.

The center, 8251 E Reno Ave., offers a variety of activities, crafts and games each week, said Fredia Cox, center coordinator.

Through the Oklahoma County Senior Nutrition Program, the center feeds at least 70 people a hot meal five days a week, Cox said. They also take food to 80 homebound people.

The center has been open at the Reno location since March 2000.

The most popular activities include card and board games, particularly pinochle, canasta, bridge and dominos, Cox said.

Bingo and computer games also are popular. Many seniors also enjoy line dancing and exercise class.

Special interest groups, such as wood carving, painting and quilting clubs, meet often at the center. Bible study classes use the center to meet regularly, as well.
