Older Americans of Knox, Inc., aka OAKS, is a senior center whose motto is "SENIORS HELPING SENIORS." It is housed in the former Farnham Grade School, and has been of service to seniors since 1980. OAKS has never received any government funds of any kind and has managed to be self supporting since inception through the efforts of members. There is a weekly "pot luck," activities such as card playing, crafts, jigsaw puzzles and games. Craft items, including many quilts, are available for sale, along with a "flea market" of donated items. Fundraiser luncheons are held periodically, among the best is the homemade chicken and noodles during Galesburg's Railroad Days.
