Put-in-Bay Senior News September 2018
News by Chris Joyce
September’s here and school is back in session, so please be careful and watch out for those kids heading back to the classroom! We had fun in August traveling to Port Clinton for a guided tour of the Liberty Aviation Museum and then enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Tin Goose Diner. We also learned about the 2008 quilt purchased by Bonnie Lukcso during the Historical Society Auction and had a Meet & Greet with Otterbein Marblehead Senior Life Community.
Finally, we took a “story walk” through Dodge Woods and an historic tour of Gibraltar Island. Many enjoyed a variety of other activities during Island Green Week.
Thank you A huge shout out goes to The Village Bakery for all the wonderful goodies they’ve donated to the Senior Center throughout the summer. Another big shout out goes to the Put-in-Bay Twp. Park District … Kelly Ferris, Lisa Brohl, Kendra Koehler, and several other island individuals, for their generous donations to help sponsor the Historic Tour of Gibraltar Island and other Eco Day/Island Green Week activities for the Put-in-Bay Seniors! Finally, let’s hear it for Yardworks … they quietly maintain the planter around the front sign at the Senior Center and we all appreciate having it look so nice!
In other Senior News September 2018, We also are so thankful for everyone who generously bakes and brings in goodies for our “Coffee Social Hour”, it sure helps, especially during the season when we have a full house! Everyone loves those delicious homemade treats!!!
Senior Lunches Senior Lunches are held at Tipper’s every Thursday at Noon. It’s important to reserve your spot by signing up at the Senior Center or calling the Center @ 419-285-5501 to make a reservation. We must let Tipper’s kitchen know the count of those planning to attend by noon on Wednesday, so please make your reservation for these delicious and fun Senior Lunches!
Staying Healthy The EMS continues to take Blood Pressures every Monday at 10:00 am, this is a great service they provide, so feel free to come and get yours checked. The “60+ Clinic” is scheduled for Thursday, September 27th. 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 wonderful program, please call 419-734-6800 to make your appointment.
Center Open on Hot Days Also, remember that even in September the weather can be hot, so 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. Remember to stay cool, be careful not to overwork yourselves and stay hydrated!
September Activities We have several special activities planned for September: On Monday, Sept. 17th from 4-9pm, the ‘Empty Bowls’ benefit will again sponsor a bowl painting event here at the Senior Center… no special skills are needed and we would love to see everyone participate. Then on Tuesday, Sept. 25th, we’ll be enjoying our annual summer picnic while watching the Antique Car Races at the airport.
