Senior News August 2018 From Put-in-Bay
Wow, can you believe it’s August already … where does the time go? In Senior News August 2018, we enjoyed a fun-filled day on the mainland for Lunch & Shopping, we also learned about changes in Medicare through an Educational Seminar, and finally, we started our six-week-long Watercolor & Acrylic Painting, Classes. Please remember to check the bulletin board at the Senior Center, as well as the calendars posted at the Senior Center, General Store, Post Office, Twp. Office, Library and on our website: www.PIBseniorcenter. org for any last-minute Put-in-Bay Senior News events that are not planned far enough in advance to get them on the calendar in time for this publication!
We have the following special events & programs planned for August:
Put-in-Bay Barber Shop Quartets will be performing at the Perry Victory and Internation Peace Memorial. Bring a char and enjoy the show! The annual Star Gazing Cruise is always a fun and educational experience in August!
On Friday, August 10th, at 10 a.m. (during our Coffee Social), we are having the ten-year reunion for the Put-in-Bay quilters who contributed to the 2008 quilt made for the Historical Society Auction. The quilt was purchased by Bonnie Lukcso who has since spent many hours researching the background and quilters involved in making the individual pieces of the quilt. She will be here to talk about the quilt story and will have a photo album and the quilt itself for people to enjoy. Please join us for this unique program!
On Tuesday, August 21st, at 9 a.m, we will be traveling to Port Clinton for a guided tour of the Liberty Aviation Museum and lunch at the Tin Goose Diner … Don’t miss out on this fun mainland trip!
Finally, on Tuesdays, August 7th, 14th, and 21st, from 1 to 3 p.m. our own Celeste Mycoskie will continue to teach her watercolor and acrylic painting classes! (The cost/class is $9, but if you have your own supplies it’s $5/class). Remember on days when the temperature is 90+ degrees, the Senior Center will be open to resident seniors if they need a break from the heat. Our Senior Lunches are always delicious and fun! This year, the summer schedule is only on Thursday’s at 12 noon. Please make your reservation by signing up at the Senior Center or calling the center at (419) 285-5501. The cut off time for reservations is noon on Wednesday for Thursday’s lunch.
In other Senior News August 2018 the Put-in-Bay EMS continues to take Blood Pressures every Monday at 10 a.m., this is a wonderful service they provide so feel free to get yours checked. The “60+ Clinic” is scheduled for Thursday, August 23rd. This free health clinic is put on by the Ottawa County Health Dept. for those 60 and older. If you’d like to take advantage of this free program, please call (419) 734-6800 to make your appointment.
A shout out goes to the Put-in-Bay Hotels for allowing us to use their pool for our Aquamotion classes! All our regularly scheduled weekly activities continue and our seniors have discovered the many health benefits, both mental and physical, that regular exercise and socializing provide. Please join us anytime and discover what wonderful people walk through these doors!
