January 08 2024

In Katy, the Fussell Senior Center run by the City of Katy's Senior Services Department continues to thrive as a hub for seniors through dynamic programming and a dedicated staff led by Amanda Di Sio, social services director, along with many committed volunteers.

The City of Katy's Senior Services Department aims to enrich the lives of seniors through a range of activities and programs designed to invigorate their hearts, stimulate their minds, and bolster their physical health. To help seniors across the Katy area stay active and engaged while empowering them to lead independent and fulfilling lives, the Department offers a myriad of activities and programs, including day excursions to various memorable destinations.

For the month of January, thoughtfully curated outings have been lined up by the Fussell Senior Center. With transportation provided, all that local seniors need to do is dial 281-391-4837 to register, and then show up at the Fussell Senior Center at the specified departure time. With all the logistics taken care of by the dedicated staff of the Senior Services, all you need to do is sit back, unwind, and take in the experience.

Take a look at this roster of trips and give the center a call to confirm your participation. Hurry, as spots are filling up fast!

Helpful Information About Trips

If you will be going on an all-day trip and are able to safely cross 5th street, please note that the Fussell Senior Center parking lot has limited parking available. You are welcome to park in the church parking lot across the street from the Fussell Senior Center so seniors who are attending daily activities at the center may find a spot. 

Prior to precinct bus trips, each passenger will be given a numbered chip indicating the order in which you and your seat mate may enter the bus. Seating is first come first served. Participants are asked to refrain from sitting in the front bus seats, as they are saved for supplies and the trip coordinator. Seniors may be allowed to sit in the front bus seats at the coordinator's discretion. Since temperatures are difficult to control on the bus, participants are encouraged to bring a portable fan or jacket in extreme temperatures. Valuables may not be secure when left on the bus, so participants are encouraged to bring a small bag to carry all important belongings.

Food and drink is not allowed on any bus with the exception of water in a closed, no leak container. Also, please note that bathroom or food stops are typically planned in advance. If an additional stop is required, please notify the trip coordinator immediately.

Have questions? Contact the Fussell Senior Center at 281-391-4837 or stop by the Center, located at 5370 E. Fifth Street Katy, TX 77493. Please note that the Center is open Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM until 5:00 PM. Want more? The Fussell Senior Center has several activities planned every week day. Check out their events calendar here and get plugged in. As the Fussell Senior Center says, "why stay at home when you can go!"
