The Augusta Senior Citizen Organization was formed in the 70’s and became a registered non-profit group in 2008. In the 80’s they moved into the Senior Center building at 134 Main Street in Augusta, Montana. The building was closed for a while due to covid and they regained access April 1st. That closure put a little strain on the seniors and the organization was almost dissolved. That’s when Brian Moody stepped up because he didn’t want to lose the seniors of the area.
Brian became president of the Augusta Senior Citizen Organization about a year ago, and was officially voted in as president in May. He worked at regaining members, and is still focused on building the organization back up. There are currently 36 paid members and always welcoming more. Membership is only $10 per year and is open to anyone 50 years of age or older. Brian is always looking for more ideas for events for the seniors, so if you have any ideas or questions, please contact him at (406) 208-0110.
Lunch is served at the Senior Center at noon Monday through Friday at 134 Main St. The price is $5 for anyone over 62 and $7 for anyone under 62, and if you are having problems paying, you will still be provided a meal. Everyone is welcome to come in to visit and work on puzzles and such while they are preparing lunch. Any other time people want to use the center, they can talk to Holly Herring at the Augusta Library @ (406) 562-3348, to obtain the key.
