PUT-IN-BAY OHIO Wow, can you believe it’s August already at the Put-In-Bay Senior Center? … where does the time go? In July, we enjoyed several Put-In-Bay Senior Center requested events. They included a fun-ﬁlled day on the mainland for lunch and shopping, then 34 of us took a day trip to Toledo to tour The National Museum of the Great Lakes and enjoyed lunch at Tony Packo’s. And ﬁnally, a small group of our ladies went to the Lakeside Women’s Club Tour of Homes. We also started a 6-week long watercolor and acrylic painting class.
We have several more special events and programs planned for August at the Put-In-Bay Senior Center:
On Tuesday, August 8th at 1 p.m. here at the Put-In-Bay Senior Center Bob Reynolds, the grandson of the Matthews Boat Company founders, will be presenting a special program: Maiden Voyage of the “Onward.” It’s the story of its 1906 voyage of the 70-ft. yacht down the Mississippi, around Florida and back to Lake Erie.
Then on Tuesday, August 15th, at 2:30 p.m., Gene Zajac will be giving an informational program on the upcoming Solar Eclipse here at the Put-In-Bay Senior Center. We will then meet on Monday, August 21st from 1 to 3 p.m. to watch the eclipse. The special glasses needed to safely observe the eclipse will be provided.
Finally, on Wednesday, August 30th, we’ll be enjoying a summer picnic while watching the Put-in-Bay Road Races at the airport. And don’t forget, every Wednesday in August (except August 30th) from 1 to 3 p.m. our own Celeste Mycoskie will continue to teach us watercolor and acrylic painting! The cost/class is $8.

A couple shout-outs go to Billy Market and the Miller Boat Line for always taking care of the Seniors on their mainland excursions!!! Also to Yard-works for maintaining the planter around the front sign at the Senior Center…we all appreciate having it look so nice! And another to Perry Holiday for allowing us to use their pool for our Aquamotion classes!” All of our regularly scheduled weekly activities continue and the 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!
