Senior Day at the Fair
Local entertainers from across the county will be performing for seniors at the 2009 Senior Citizen’s Day at the Ottawa County Fair, Wednesday July 22 from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Ottawa County Senior Resources has teamed up with the Ottawa County OSU Extension Office and the Ottawa County Senior Fair Board to sponsor this senior event.
The Seniors’ Activity Committee along with the county’s six Senior Centers across the county helped to plan the day of fun.
“We wanted the county fair to be a good experience for the seniors,” said Juanita Mills Persely, chair of the Seniors’ Activity Committee. In addition, Senior Resources, which sponsors the “free” box lunch, will be taking reservations for lunch.
“We want the seniors to enjoy the fair, and not worry about if there will be a lunch available,” said Dianne Martin Mortensen, executive coordinator of Senior Resources.
The day will include free entertainment from Felix Manaia, Doc Nehls, Dave Ninke and Smile Awhile musical groups. The day will also include bingo, wagon rides, coffee and donuts and blood pressure and blood sugars checks. In addition, the Senior Fair Board is once again providing golf carts for transporting seniors to and from the parking lots. Full day schedules are available at all local senior centers and through the Internet.
