The auction is made up of a variety of items that have been donated
to the senior center by various individuals and businesses in the
area. The proceeds from the auction go to support the daily
operations of the center, located at the corner of Pulaski and
Kickapoo streets in downtown Lincoln.
Throughout the year, the
Oasis offers numerous benefits to the senior citizens in Logan
County. The doors are open for socialization, providing a place
where people of similar age can gather and share their interests.
The center offers opportunities for such activities as bridge
tournaments, which are very popular.
In addition, the center offers midday meals and potlucks where
everyone gets to share their cooking skills with friends.
The center also operates a bus that allows for out-of-town trips
for the group.
In addition, the center hosts a craft and gift shop. The items
offered in the shop are handcrafted by Oasis members.
This year the auction is going to feature some really nice items.
According to Dom Dalpoas, the director of the senior center, among
the many items available will be a lovely cherry wood vanity with
accessories, a new Burk water pump and an electric handsaw.
