Senior News January 2018 With the hustle and bustle of the holidays over, we are all looking forward to life slowing down a bit! During the off-season, a “Soup and a Show,” “Wii Bowling” or similar activity is added at least once a month, but are often not
planned far enough in advance to make this publication. Check out the calendars posted at the Senior Center, General Store, Post Office, Twp. Office, Library and our website: for any last-minute events! The Put-in-Bay Senior Center is always looking for more people to participate in our activities, please feel free to stop by and
join us anytime and make some senior news!

December’s senior news events included the annual Senior Christmas Luncheon … the facility was overflowing with island seniors. Everyone was dressed up; the facility was beautifully decorated and all enjoyed a fabulous holiday meal together and singing Christmas Carols after. A special shout-out to our caterer Sue Thwaite and her wonderful “elves” – Kelly Mohn, Kendra and Phoebe Koehler, Oliver and Don Thwaite!!!! The Seniors also enjoyed the last minute Tailgate Party for the OSU/Wisconsin game. There were many delicious desserts and coffee; the game didn’t start until 8 p.m. and amazingly everyone stayed until the end – which wasn’t until after midnight!

We want to say, “THANK YOU” again to the Girl Scouts for all their hard work assembling and delivering the Christmas Fruit
Baskets during December. The seniors truly appreciate everyone behind the scenes who also contributed to the delicious baskets. Lastly, a big “shout out” goes to the Recreation Committee for their generous contributions toward the Fruit Baskets and Christmas Luncheon. Another big THANK YOU to our Girl Scouts for taking on the “Judging of the Holiday Lights & Decorations” this
